Airfare to Tucuman, Argentina
Tucuman is located in the Andean Northwest region of Argentina. Its capital, San Miguel de Tucuman (or simply referred to just as “Tucuman”) , is an important historical spot in Argentina since the Declaration of Independence from Spain took place here on July 9, 1816. The place where the event occurred can still be visited and is a colonial-style house known as “Casa Historica” by tucumanos or “Casita de Tucuman” by Argentineans from other regions.
Aside from visiting the Independence House, you can also visit Plaza Independencia – the main square – and San Franciso Church – famous for its beautiful interior. The best way to visit the historic area is on foot.
The city is served by Teniente General Benjamín Matienzo International Airport (TUC) . It replaced an old airport serving the region and now big aircrafts can land here. The airlines serving the airport are: Aerolineas Argentinas, Aerosur, Austral Líneas Aéreas, LAN Argentina and Sol Líneas Aéreas. There are direct flights to/from Buenos Aires, Lima and Cordoba.
The easiest way to get to Tucuman is by plane via Buenos Aires ($349RT on Aerolineas Argentina). The flight takes 2 hours.
When you fly from abroad, make sure to choose the cheapest departure city located close to you. From the USA that would be Miami ($797RT on Aerolineas Argentinas), while from Europe London remains the best choice.
To save some money, plan to fly outside the summer season and avoid the weekends as well. Book your ticket in advance and be flexible.
