Business Travel Show Europe Kick Off, 23 February,
Global Travel Risk Summit Europe, April 2023,
3rd Annual Sustainable Business Travel Summit
ARGENTINA is growing and growing in terms of British tourists and in January 2006, the hottest month of the year, the number rose by 30.2% compared with 2004, making the UK the best performing country in Europe and the second in the world (after Brazil) in terms of tourists. All this without any non-stop flights, BA operating just four times a week via Sao Paulo, most arriving via other European hubs.
In 2005 the growth of UK arrivals through Ezeiza International Airport in Buenos Aires increased by 17.3% in comparison with 2004.
The data also shows that UK tourists stay an average of 15.4 days in Argentina (higher than the 12.2 days international average), and that 66.9% of the British travellers stay in 4 or 5-star hotels.
The English Tower, seen left, continues to dominate the Plaza Retiro opposite the main railway station. Attempts to rename it seem to have floundered!
