Next flight on this trip is this classic shuttle flight between Port Gentil and Libreville, operated 4 times a day.



There is no airside connection possible in Port Gentil, I have just collected my luggage and I immediately walk into the check-in area to drop my bag again. Check-in area is not big, there are only two counters.

Cabin baggage weight and size are regularly verified. The allowed weight is small : only 6 kg in economy.

There is only one line at security but it moves fast. Security agents are polite and not stressful.
After security you only walk a few meters before arriving in the boarding area.

There are enough seats for two planes (ATR sized) and the company provides free wifi, coffee, tea and water.

Unsurprisingly there is only one boarding gate.

Boarding starts on time and the passengers walk to the plane. The picture was taken from the terminal to avoid running into problems with the Gendarmerie. 
Again, we will be flying TR-AGB, the oldest plane of the fleet and the sole ATR42.

I've asked for a window seat at check-in, I have a nice view on the left engine.

Seat legroom is small but the flight only lasts 30 minutes.

Luggage delivery takes place in this room, a security agent is charged to make the luggage move on the non-motorized conveyor.
