Hello everyone, this FR is the return flight from Villavicencio to Bogota, after a few days in the Guainia and Meta regions.
Villavicencio airport is very small and only a few flights a day are operating from this airport. In my case I went to the airport about an hour and a half before departure. A few pictures are shown here.
After my bag was checked in I went through the security check, from there directly to the waiting room, where I was waiting until the boarding time. Boarding was made on time.
Of course there are no jetways in this airport, so you have to walk in the stand until you reach the plane. Steward was waiting on the plane and welcomed passengers. It was a full flight today.
Legroom wasn't as good as on the other flight (the plane was a bigger ATR and there was more space, even that is better than Vueling :) )
Captain welcomed us aboard and cabin crew made the safety instructions. Soon we were ready to go. While taxiing to the runway another EASYFLY airplane was arriving from Bogota
Bye bye Llanos Orientales!
The andes mountains were on the left of the aircraft, and during 15-20 minutes plane was going through the north-east, heading to Casanare region while we were climbing. A few minutes later we made a 180 degree turn and headed to Villavicencio again before starting the crossing of the Andes. Five minutes after starting the Andes cross we were above Bogota.
A few pictures during the flight. Today weather was better.
Still drinks service on this short flight. And cabin shot.
And again, over Bogota. Views were nice!
Descent started, it was very bumpy in a few areas because of the clouds so people was kinda scared. Hopefully it wasn't long and after another 180 turn we were on finals in El Dorado airport.
We landed after a 45 minutes flight. During taxi we crossed with this 735 from Avior coming from Caracas
And parked at our gate again
After disembark we went through Terminal 2, much older than the Terminal 1. Terminal 2 is used for national flights. Here we picked up our bags, which arrived very fast. After that, a taxi drove me to the hotel at the city center.
Thank you for reading!
Easyfly is a good regional airline, service is quite good and planes are confortable for these kind of flights. Even it is a low cost airline (if I'm not wrong) the airline is very efficient and one of the best ways to move around the country.
