Ushuaia Airport Reviews

Ushuaia International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional de Ushuaia Malvinas Argentinas, IATA: USH, ICAO: SAWH) is located 4 km (2.5 mi) south[1] of the center of Ushuaia, a city on the island of Tierra del Fuego in the Tierra del Fuego Province of Argentina.

The Ushuaia Airport has been used by various distinct airlines at different periods. Ushuaia Airport is the world’s southernmost international airport and is often used by passengers as a cruise-ship gateway to the Antarctic.

Ushuaia International Airport is fit to receive airplanes as large as the Boeing 747. Tower Air used to operate such types into the airport, and Aerolíneas Argentinas operated 747-400s into the airport during events of high passenger numbers (such as entire cruise-ship passenger payloads) until retiring this aircraft type in February, 2012. Two chartered Air France Concordes also visited in the past: F-BTSD arriving from Buenos Aires and continuing to Santiago, Chile, in early 1999; the second arriving from Easter Island, Chile and continuing to Buenos Aires prior to the cessation of most Concorde charter flights on July 25, 2000. Condor, LTU and Lufthansa also offered charter flights from Germany and First Choice Airways from the United Kingdom. It also offers charter flights to Maputo, Mozambique.

The Ushuaia Airport’s name reflects Argentina’s claims of sovereignty over the Falkland Islands (Spanish: Islas Malvinas), and could be translated as “Ushuaia – Argentine Malvinas International Airport”.
