Getting to the airport can be an expensive feat in any capital city. However, this is not the case in Santiago where an airport bus will only set you back 1700 pesos per person to get to and from Santiago airport. The airport bus is a private bus, dedicated only to going to & from the airport. What is also great about the service is that you don’t need to recharge your bus card as they accept cash onboard.
The bus is clean and comfortable, much like a private transfer, and there is a underneath storage compartment for all your big suitcases.The bus takes approximately 45 minutes to and from the airport. To catch the bus to the airport, go to Los Heroes, Santiago where the bus leaves every 10 minutes for the airport. If you are not close by, you can catch an uber to this location. To give you a price comparison, catching an uber the whole way to the airport will set you back approximately 15000 pesos from centro or an airport transfer was advertised at 35 USD per person.
