Argentina plane tickets & flights

Quite popular to travel by air within Argentina. Especially foreign travelers fly from one end to the other in order to rapidly reach their destination. Of course, the Argentine landscape is spectacularly beautiful, but could be boring to drive or ride a bus for long days even.
