Hello

That's my short trip from Asturias to Lisbon in brand new ATR operating for TAP Portugal in the colors of it's own reginal airline: Portugalia Airlines. This aircraft, in particular, is operated and owned by White Airways, a private portuguese charter airline.

Arriving in Astúrias Airport, near Aviles City and 40km from Oviedo, the capital of Astúrias region

Conclusion

Very enjoyable flight and I was impressed because ATR wasn't very noisy as I thought, is a very computerized aircraft and the fuel efficiency was impressive. Just burned 1000kg of fuel in this flight. The flight was smooth and the snack very tasty and very good for the type and length of flight.
