LATAM is currently offering cheap business class tickets from Germany to Argentina. Departing from Frankfurt, you can get a round trip to Buenos Aires at €1,108. You can travel from the end of March to September 2022. Unfortunately, there is a small detour with an additional stop in Rio de Janeiro on the way there.
Using the following form, you can simply search for your desired dates and then be forwarded to Skyscanner to book on Expedia’s website. Alternatively, you can book directly on LATAM’s website by being redirected from Google Flights – though this increases the price by at least €100. We have marked all available dates for trips of up to a maximum of 28 days in green:
On the way to Argentina, you’ll first fly in LATAM’s Boeing 777 to São Paulo, from where you, unfortunately, have to fly a detour via Rio de Janeiro to Buenos Aires. The flights will then be operated by aircraft of the Airbus A320 family, where only a premium economy with more seat pitch is available. The detour is luckily not necessary on the way back.
We expect further shakeups in the airline industry over the following months. Some services might be cancelled, aircraft changed or downgraded. The schedule we describe may very well change.
Search & Book
Unfortunately, we could not find the fare rules. Thus, the expiry date, etc. are sadly unknown to us. You can travel between the end of March and September 2022.
You can find available dates quickly and easily with the help of Google Flights (instructions). The low price can only be found on Skyscanner. Alternatively, you can be redirected from Google Flights to LATAM for at least €100 more. Rebooking these flights is possible for a €250 fee + the price difference.
LATAM’s Business Class
LATAM’s business class in the Boeing 787 Dreamliner offers seats that can be adjusted into a completely flat bed. The seating arrangement is 2-2-2, i.e. not every seat can be reached directly from the aisle. On the other hand, the seats are very spacious. Here is a picture from the plane:
Boeing 777s are used on the Frankfurt – São Paulo segment. These are likely to already have the new business class. Every seat there is equipped with direct access to the aisle. Here is a picture of the new cabin:
Business class also includes better meals, priority services, 3x 23 kg of checked baggage, and lounge access.
The tickets are issued in booking classes Z (business) and W (premium economy). So you expect to roughly get the following number of miles:

Information & Tips for Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires is the significant cosmopolitan capital of Argentina. Its center is the Plaza de Mayo with stately buildings from the 19th century, such as the famous presidential palace Casa Rosada. Major sights are the Teatro Colón, a magnificent opera house with almost 2,500 seats dating from 1908, and the modern MALBA (Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires) for Latin American art.
Best Time to Visit
The seasons in Argentina are the reverse of those in the Northern Hemisphere. Therefore the weather in Buenos Aires is ideal in fall (Mar-May) and spring (Sept-Nov). The best travel deals are between April and June. The most beautiful time to visit, however, is in October and November when the jacaranda trees are in bloom.
From the airport to the city
By far the most comfortable way to get to and from the airport is by Taxi. Prices range from about 30-40€ per direction. You can either request a taxi in advance or contract with one in the airport.
