Buenos Aires layover to IGR

Hi everyone

I am trying to book a flight on Latam from Santiago de Chile (SCL) to Iguazu (IGR).

The only available one flies via Buenos Aires (AEP), with a 2-hour 15-minute layover. Is this enough time?? Will the luggage be checked in all the way to IGR from SCL or do we need to collect it in AEP and recheck it in?

Also, where do we clear customs? In AEP or IGR?

Thanks!

Assuming it is all on one ticket you'll land at AEP to do immigration & customs before rechecking your bag in for the flight to IGR. Should be fine.

Sounds like plenty of time for AEP. Beware that at a future date (I don't recall exactly when), all AEP international ops except Uruguay will be transferring to EZE, so if you are booking way out in the future, you may want to research this further.

The transfers are starting in April 2018: https://www.cronista.com/informacion...0710-0080.html
