Hailed an Uber ride to the airport at less than half the price of the overpriced airport taxis. Checked in an hour before departure. Boarding pass was printed on a receipt paper. There is only a single shop, selling local confectionary, in the terminal building and no other shops after immigration and security. Hence, it is advisable not to arrive at the airport too early as there is literally nothing to do.

Taxi to the parking stand. Firefly's newest ATR72-500 (Firefly has reduced its fleet and withdrew its entire new ATR72-600 fleet from service) would be operating this flight.

Barely 10min after the aircraft had parked and incoming passengers disembarked, boarding was called. We made the leisurely walk along the tarmac to the aircraft.

The great cabin crew offered me one each of all the available snack choices of curry puff, muffin and peanuts! Snack feast onboard!
