Hi all,

These are pictures from my flight from Buenos Aires to Montevideo. It's a short 45 minute long flight but a nice experience overall as the seats were very comfortable.

Buenos Aires Aeroparque is located right next to downtown BA and makes it avery convenient connection to the nearby cities instead of Ezeiza International, which is located very far.

Check in hall:

Going upstairs towards security check- there are more shops and eateries upstairs landside rather than on the airside, which was a bit odd

Now airside, this was the only eatery in the international airside of the terminal.

You could not use the IFE during the flight though, maybe it is used for longer flights but for us they just showed the safety video in it

Take off- usually if you seat on the right side you get great views of downtown BA, but since the weather was a bit foggy most buildings were not visible

Conclusion

Overall a very comfortable flight with Austral with great seat comfort and cabin ambiance. AEP could have more shops and restos on the airside as it was very boring airside. Montevideo airport is very clean and has a great design the only thing is that it's very small but it was great otherwise.

    Very nice pictures, I loved how Bs As looked, Montevideo looked really charming. That first picture of the terminal in Carrasco looked like something out of a Science Fiction movie!

    Thanks for sharing, saludos!

    Thanks for sharing another very nice and interesting report! I really love E190s, they're the most comfortable planes in Y in my opinion. Pretty cool to have seatback PTVs on a short flight on an E190! Amazing aerial shots or Buenos Aires and Montevideo, really very beautiful! I had no idea Montevideo had such a nice and modern airport--looks awesome. Great bonus pictures of Montevideo, it seems a little more rustic than Buenos Aires, but has an old world charm. Thanks for taking us on this trip of discovery!

    Tell you what????
    This report helped me decide between Buenos Aires and Montevideo.
    Now I have a ticket to fly to Montevideo next July!!!
    I can't wait!!

    Thanks! :)

      That's great but Buenos Aires is so much bigger and has so much more to see, If I had to choose between the 2 to visit I'd choose Buenos Aires for sure. But both cities are great and very close to each other.

        LOL. May be next time!! XDDD

        Can you believe that this is going to be the THIRD time I see Buenos Aires from the air??? The first time I was on my way from Santiago to Madrid. The second time I was on my way from Santiago to Florianópolis!! Now I will land there for some minutes at AEP, at least!!

        I have nothing against Buenos Aires. It's just that it's so large that I will have to leave a whole month to enjoy the visit. :)

    That's great but in my opinion you should see both cities, but Buenos Aires has so much more to do than Montevideo and is a lovely city and you should not miss it. If I were to chose between one of them to visit, I'd choose BA :)

    Hi again!

    I came across your report again and thought I'd let you know that I eventually went to Montevideo, as I told you I was planning to do. You might have seen my reports here. Well, it was fantastic! I'm coming back next September because I made friends there, and I still have to visit some places.

    Your pictures bring many nice memories now that I am familiar with all those places, so I enjoyed reading yor report twice as much this time!

    Thanks again for sharing!
