Cheap Airline Tickets To Uruguay

Travelers to Montevideo, Uruguay are going to find the search for cheap flights to Uruguay are more difficult to find than other South American destinations like Colombia or Peru. There are good prices on flights to be found and you will have more success if you can fly out of certain cities. The number of major airlines offering flight service to Uruguay is very low so the competition is less than in South American countries such as Colombia, Peru and Brazil.

Travel Search Engines

As Uruguay is not considered a major destination, most travel search engines like Travelocity do not have their flexible travel dates feature enabled. The flexible travel dates is a great tool when searching for flights because you can choose to have the search engine look for the best priced flights for a date range as broad as several months. However, for the fall of 2010 and early 2011 in addition to Travelocity, other sites such as TripBase and LowFares have been marketing for flights to Uruguay.

If you are conducting a search with the travel search engines, the airport code for Montevideo, Uruguay is MVD.

From Europe, Iberia is your best bet hands down. Iberia have excellent flight service to Montevideo.

The other larger US air carriers such as Continental Airlines and Delta Air Lines do not offer direct service to Uruguay. No Canadian airlines have flights to Uruguay.

My favorite airline for flying to Central America or South America is TACA Airlines. Unfortunately they do not have the most convenient flights to Uruguay. A flight from the US to Uruguay with TACA involves a flight to San Salvador, El Salvador which is TACA Airline's main hub. Then you will need a second stop in their South American hub in Lima, Peru before continuing on to Uruguay.
