Star Alliance founding member Lufthansa has a sweet deal on flights to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Prices for a round trip in Premium Economy Class start at £651 (751€). You can choose from multiple departure airports:
All routes will first take you to Frankfurt, Germany from where you’ll continue to Argentina on a non-stop connection. Since Lufthansa doesn’t offer Premium Economy Class on short-haul flights, your first and last segment will be in Economy.
Search & Book
Unfortunately, we couldn’t find any fare rules for this offer. The deal seems to be available throughout the year, with some exceptions during summer. Also, we don’t know how long you can book the fare, but in order to be on the safe side we wouldn’t wait too long.
Use Google Flights (instructions) to find dates that suit your time schedule. After that, you can get either book directly on Lufthansa’s website or use our Travel Dealz Flight search to compare prices.

A ticket in for Premium Economy class gives you access to the Business Class Lounge on some airports for an extra fee and moreover you can bring two pieces of luggage (23 kg each) with you.
The premium class distinguishes itself from the Economy class by seats with more legroom and separate arm- and footrests. There is also a maximum of 2 – 4 – 2 seats per row. In other words, you can’t sit farther away from the aisle than one seat. Also, there is a power connection build into every seat.
Just like in Business Class, you’ll get a welcome drink before take-off and can choose your meal from a menu, which is then served on porcelain dishes. For extra comfort during the flight, there is an amenity kit with travel accessories (sleeping mask, toothbrush, socks…) and a bottle of water.
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.
