Default Iguazu Falls

We are flying into Sao Paulo, Brazil and would like to continue to Iguazu Falls before flying to Buenos Aires to catch our cruise. We can find flights to Iguazu from BA, but can't find a thing from Sao Paulo. Any help?

When I did this in 2002, I flew on Varig from Sao Paulo, but I think they have gone out of business. According to my search, TAM still has flights from Sao Paulo to Iguassu (IGU). http://www.tamairlines.com/b2c/jsp/default.jhtml Your TA should be able to book this for you. Be sure you are using that spelling for Iguassu (Iguazu is the Spanish spelling and used in Argentina).

I think there are separate airports on the Argentina and Brazil sides.

Yes there are two airports at the Falls, one on the Argentinian side and one on the Brazilian. We flew into the Brazilian side on Varig but they have now folded so am not sure whom you would fly with from Sao Paulo.

The airport code is IGU and the airport is at Parana, Brazil.

I appreciate all the info. I was using the wrong language for the Brazilian side. TAM does indeed fly into IGU from Sau Paulo. Several fly into IGR, the Argentina side, from Buenos Aires. Thanks for the info I was missing.
