I need help identifying the airport listed as (AEP) in Buenos Aires. Is this the same as Aeroparque Metroplitano Jorge Newberry east of Palermo? Also can someone tell me about carry on restrictions (size/weight/content) for LAN Argentina flights within Argentina. The checked baggage (equipaje)is 20K per ticket for flights to Bariloche. Can I carry on a small bag or two for the overhead compartment? Is it the same for international flights?
Can you describe (prong shape & number) the 220 volt outlets used in Bariloche so I can purchase the correct 120 volt adapter?

I only know of two large airports in Buenos Aires, EZE which is Ezezia, the international airport and George Newberry, a regional airport. AEP is probably George Newberry.

I am not familiar with LAN Argentina, sorry.

I would wait until I got to Argentina to buy the adapters. There are at least three different kinds of of sockets that I know of. Also you will need transformers to change from 110 to 220 volt if you are from north America.

You will need a heavy duty tranformer for a laptop and other types of stuff.

I know there are 2 types of plug adaptors that you have to mostly deal with here in Arg.. Type "C" and "I", and in most sockets they have adapted both to be present. And I am sure that the adaptors can be purchased at any good ol radio shack..
Check out the info here :

I wouldn't say you need a "heavy" duty transformer for a laptop, with a 300 Watt one I would say is more than enough and some.

I would add also that most laptops have an automatic switch to the voltage setting.. So you dont need a transformer for that.

I was only able to find two types of tranformers in Argentina where I have bought mine, what i call a heavy duty one and a very small one.

considering what I paid for the heavy duty one(80 pesos) and what I paid for my laptop, I figured I would take no chances.

same for cell phones-- most modern electronics will handle both 110 and 220 without a transformer-- it is only the older technology that requires worry...it did take me a while to find adapters-- I would go to radio shack and pick up a bag of them.

I checked the 3 laptops in my office and none have a voltage switch on them.

To have a voltage switch in it the laptop would have to have a built in transformer, a piece of hardware that I think would be an added space taker in a small space.

Maybe this will help,

I brought my laptop with me not but I month ago...I went to RadioShack in the U.S. and purchase a pack of 4 converters for 14 dollars. The adapter you need are the "c" and "d" adapters, that is it. Most laptops in the past 5 years of productions come, as a piece of hardware on the motherboard, with voltage converters, so you don't need one. All you need is you laptop and converter plug..that is it.

As we speak, I'm using the Argentina LAN connection form Telecom...pretty reliable..most reliable actually!

More on adapters and here

My two laptops plugin straight in Argentina. In the back, the label should state the tolerances. Most recent ones cover the 220 range. Buenos Aires has 'ferreterias' -mom and pop hardware stores- in every corner. AEP goes for Aeroparque, short for Aeroparque Jorge Newbery. You got it.

I am planning to travel to Argentina for a business/leisure trip. Does the airport that I choose to fly into make any difference: safety, convenience, location?

EZE which is Ezezia is the international airport in Buenos Aires.
AEP is Jorge Newbery the regional airport in Buenos Aires.

Ezezia is safe and is located in Ezezia, a city outside the capital, it is probably you only choice.
