Hello. It seems that all internal flights go through BA...is that correct? So, if I wanted to get from Calafate to Mendoza, I would need to fly to BA first? Can someone help me understand how long a bus from BA to Mendoza would be? Many thanks!

That is correct - BA is THE air hub.
Bus trip is roughly 11 hours giver or take some...an overnight bus is the best - dinner, movie, "flight attendants", sleeper seats, bingo (), and waking up to see the stunning Andes come closer and closer ...sit on the left side of the bus if possible - a great angle of the Uco Valley mountains - the highest series of snow peaks in all of South America.

HI. It looks like your question was answered. I do believe not every flight within Argentina is not always through BA (Aeroparque) however, it depends where you are going, etc.

A slight correction to WTM, as Mrs Picci stated sometimes flights do not connect and are non-stop. I got this graphic from the aerolineas argentinas website that shows which destinations can be flown straight.
The page with prices is here

There are only a few... so I guess BA is THE air hub after all

I am traveling to Argentina in December. I have purchased plane tickets on Aerolineas for a trip from BA to Iguazo, on to Mendoza and then back to BA. Question: My trip from Iguazo to Mendoza has a change of planes in BA with a 25 minute connection at BA. Is that sufficient?

Richard, you should be fine. The local airport is quite small.

As an update the prices on teh linked page above are very very very limited! It says U$266 for Ushuaia but I paid £364 (3 months ahead of time) so that is nearer $640!
I was told that people buying direct from the airline outside of the country are being significantly overcharged. But given the fact that it is a very busy route it was too risky to wait until I was there. Marvellous! A rock and a hard place.
Just got to see if the flight actually flies now!

Roberto - thansk for your reponse. As regards booking internal flight in Argentina, my question was simply: Do you have the contacts of a travel agent/website where foreigners can book flights?
I am not in the Argentina and don't have a local travel agent but am trying to get flights sorted before my arrival. I was alerted (though Argentina Forums) to www.despegar.com. However, there doesn't seem to be a provision for booking for foreigners and when I entre the locations, dates and times - it says: "Tarifas no vŠlidas para extranjeros".
I cannot find a way through their website to book as a foreigner. Any help/contacts would be appreciated on booking flights for foreigners as I am keen to get travel sorted ASAP.

Kara, sorry for the delay... contact Erna (my mother) using this form http://www.travelsur.net/contact.htm just as an initial approach. Email her your needs with as much detail as possible and take it from there. At a minimum, you will have a reference. With us you can pay online and she can issue e-tickets for you. Then, you can get receipts/vouchers at your place of stay or get those delivered to you at the airport when you arrive.
Another thing you can try is buying tickets directly from Aerolineas Argentinas.
