This is probably the strangest flight in my life. I took a flight with DAP, local flights provider in the south of Chile to get to the city situated the most in the south in the world - Isla Navarino and its Puerto Williams.
I am reporting the return flight as this was very interesting. First of all, it was very full. The small airport, which was even smaller than my flat in Prague, accommodates only this flight during a day.

When we got to the airport, where only gravel road leads, we waited for a few minutes to get boarding passes - plastic! I have never seen something like this! They confirmed your name in their papers because of no computer system, gave you those "tickets" and check-in was done.

No security, nothing. When the plane arrived and we were ready for boarding, they let first those passengers who made online check-in (and were assigned seats) to get onboard continuing with us who checked at the airport. We gave them back out provisional boarding passes and chose our seats in the former SWISS aircraft.

    Amazing!!! Were you on holidays??? I hoped I would be the first to report on DAP airlines, but well, that's the way life is. I will sob under my pillow for a while and that's it. Hahahha

    I got one of those boarding passes on a domestic latam flight here in Chile, too. I think that was my second report, from Chiloé island, which also has a teeny-weeny airport.

    Amazing views! Lovely aerials! Well, Patagonia itself is a wonderful thing. I'm really happy you were able visit the very end of the world!

    BTW, you might want to ask the admins to add DAP Airline to the data base. Your flight is being displayd as Danube Wings.

    Thank you very much for sharing!! :)

    It must have been an amazing experience in such a remote area of Southern Latin America. Would loved to have seen more photos of the service and flight itself though, but thanks for sharing!
