Buenos Aires

The Capital of Tango

Buenos Aires is the Capital of Argentina, the locals are also known as “portenos” which translates to “people of the port”. Most portenos have European heritage, most common descent being Spanish and Italian along with many other European regions. Most locals are Roman Catholic as well as some Anglican and Eastern Orthodox church goers and some Jewish and Muslim communities.

The flights from Auckland to Buenos Aires take over 11 hours and 45 minutes, depending on the airline and transit points chosen. Contact your local Global Travel Network Agent to find the best possible airfares and suggestions to design your ideal holiday.

Buenos Aires is Argentina’s main port and most sizable port in South America. The country’s economy is reliant on the production and export of agricultural goods. It is Argentina’s key location of consumption, processing and shipping.

Due to the prominent effect of European culture, heritage and European inspired architecture, Buenos Aires has been nicknamed the “Paris of South America” and has many museums connected to history and fine arts and theatre. Tourism is popular and visitors frequent the downtown areas such as, Plaza de Mayo, Puerto Madero and Florida Street.

Argentines have a passion for soccer, it is extremely popular with at least 24 professional football teams, other popular sports include rugby, golf, basketball, hockey, horse racing and tennis.

Buenos Aires is famous for Tango. Tango originated in the 19th century working class neighbourhoods of San Telmo and La Boca and has since grown worldwide. The Tango is unique due to its sensual dance moves and its embrace and use of improvisation. It can be interpreted as a story of romantic frustration, it is intimate and soulful and created to express the dancer’s sorrow. It is their refuge and a type of dance that people worldwide, of all walks of life can relate to. The city celebrates an annual Tango day on 11 December. Sunday’s are also popular for Tango Shows on the streets and in the bazaars near Donnego Square.

The Consolidation team at GTN are excellent to deal with.  They are efficient and friendly, and when there has been queries with airlines or airfares, they have always sought answers and found solutions to the problem wherever possible.  The QuikTravel system is easy to use, as well as the additional information on the system around commissions, airline contacts, policies, as well as the summary of recent changes in fares & rules from airlines.  GTN is an excellent partner, and the small personal nature of the team is a good fit for our business
