Star Alliance carrier Swiss team is offering extraordinary cheap economy class tickets from Barcelona to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Round trip fares start as low as €353, a price that includes meal and beverage services on the long haul segments. You’ll have a layover in Zurich and a short stop in São Paulo. In some cases, you can also fly with Lufthansa for a small surcharge. That would save you the stop in São Paulo.
A major downside of this deal is that not even a frequent flyer tier will get you free checked bags on this fare. And the surcharge for luggage is outrageous, with Lufthansa charging roughly €220 for 23 kg of luggage.
These tickets are not refundable if you cancel them. To change flight dates, you’d need to pay the fare difference and a rebooking fee of €75.
Our availability calendar shows you all trips for trips of 11 to 28 days. After selecting an outbound and inbound flight, it will forward you to Lufthansa’s website. We were not able to find cheaper tickets through online travel agencies.
You will first board a flight from Barcelona to Zurich, where you’ll have to change planes. From Zurich, a Boeing 777-300ER will first take you to São Paulo, where the plane will be refuelled. Then the same plane takes you onwards to Buenos Aires.
