Avianca Argentina A07100 AEP-ROS [JUN232018] - Pic and Video Report

Wed Jul 04, 2018 3:56 pm

Hello and welcome to my second trip report here on airliners.net!
I think it's the very first time Avianca Argentina is featured here on the site. Also, it was the very first time to me flying on a tuboprop.

Avianca Argentina A0 7100
ATR 72-600 - LV-GUG
June 23rd 2018
Buenos Aires - Aeroparque Jorge Newbery (AEP/SABE): 08.00 [08.06]
Rosario - Islas Malvinas International Airpor (ROS/SAAR): 09.00 [08.56]
Flight Time: 56 min
Distance: 286 km
Seat: 10F


Image

I've arrived to Aeroparque two hours before departure and went to Terminal B to leave my luggage. Then proceeded to security control and I was airside in less than five minutes time.
Our flight was called to board through gate 1 and then we were bus to the platform position where Avianca Argentina's ATR are usually parked.

Lovely tail!

I boarded and greeted the purser who was welcoming us at the door and made my way to my seat: 10F. After 10-15 minutes we were ready and the safety demo began as we pushed back.

We took off from runway 13, heading south and then banked to the east to set our course to Rosario. As I stated above, this was my first time flying a turboprop and I was thrilled at the powerful take off!

We reached our cruising altitude: 14000 ft and the FA's sprang to begin with the service. Last year I flew Austral to Rosario and service is non-existent due to the lenght of the flight as they use an Embraer 190 (30 min).

Image

They gave us: a tropical mix (raisins, sliced dried bananas and sunflower seeds), a choice of apple juice or orange juice and water.

Image

After a while, they came to clear our tables as we were to begin our descent.

I define myself as an atheist but views like this one make me wonder...

Image

Got a bit choppy at this point...

Image

Almost there

Image

We landed on runway 02. There was only one aircraft at the airport, an Austral's E190 which took off just after we come in to land.

Hope you've enjoyed as much as I did sharing this with you. Also, let the link to a video report I made about this flight.
