Hi all,

These are pictures from Buenos Aires to Santiago de Chile by Air Canada. Buenos Aires has a nice airport terminal, there was an extension, which was recently added to it that has around 8 more airbridges.

Below is a pic of the airport with the extension visible to the left.

Now walking towards the new part of the terminal, you just suddenly enter a brand new part of the terminal and there are no security checks or anything in between, you can just walk over to this side.

This area is called Bellavista- This is Santiago's Nightlife district and all thee colorful houses are night clubs and restos beautifully painted. It gets crowded at nigh time. I have not seen such a beautifully designed night life area, very creative and very unique indeed

Conclusion

Overall a comfortable flight with Air Canada, comfortable seats and nice crew. Buenos Aires airport is very nice and clean. Santiago airport is also very nice, a bit old looking inside with old furniture but still very comfortable with nice shops to browse through.

    Thanks for sharing! This AV 5th freedom flight is definitely a nice option between Buenos Aires and Santiago for Star Alliance flyers. AC offers a good Y product with decent catering for a short-ish flight. Awesome pics of the Andes mountains! Very nice bonus of Santiago. What a city of contrasts, from gleaming skyscrapers to old world charm and a beautiful mountain backdrop. Seems that there was some pollution on some days with a cloud hanging over the city similar to what I've seen in Mexico City.

    Thanks for the FR and the large number of pictures both at EZE airport and of Santiago.
    Having flown from it the new addition at EZE is very moderne and provides very good spotting opportunities , a nice change from the older darker terminal.
    The Air Canada product seems good and it's nice to be able to fly airlines on 5th freedom flights. The sandwich looks good and I trust you when you say it was tasty , an adequate meal for the duration of the flight.

    Except for the new part, EZE seems unchanged since I went there 10 years ago!

    The views you had were awesome!

    The service seemed adequate for the hop across the Andes...as others said, it is nice to have the 5th Freedom flight available.

    You gave me Santiago-cravings with your tourism bonus!

    Thanks for sharing this comprehensive FR

    A bunch of gorgeous pictures

    A sandwich is quite good for a north american carrier for a two hours flight ;)
