Since 2016, Puerto Buenos Aires has been working towards strengthening the cruise industry in our country in addition to reactivating the maritime and fluvial passenger transportation.
Due to great work coordination between the private and public sector, we have achieved an increase of 27% in the arrival of tourists and we have received more than 12 new ships in the last two years.
In October of 2017, President Macri and the Minister of Transportation Dietrich announced the "1 Million Passenger Plan", a plan aimed at implementing measures in order to further promote tourism and receive one million passengers in the upcoming four seasons. During the 2019/2020 season, we will be receiving 600,000 passengers nationwide.
Moreover, with measures such as the reduction of tariffs and the decrease in the cost of fuel, we have developed Antarctic Tourism, and thus consolidated Ushuaia as the gateway to Antarctica.
