SGAS actual location

While the actual location of SGAS is in Luque city, people commonly associate this airport with Asuncion. This association is reflected in its official IATA code, "ASU", and ICAO code, SGAS, where 'SG' stands for Paraguay and 'AS' for Asuncion. Therefore, I suggest to change location to Asuncion.

Puerto Natales

Puerto Natales is a not a good airport, the line streched out of the airport and it took us 2 hours to get to the plane.

Santiago Airport

I was flying LATAM from Puerto Natales, Chile and It was surprising how fast it was! We landed and the taxi was only 5 minutes, getting off the plane and the walk was long to baggage claim. Then we got some more Chilean Pesos and we went on our way.

Terminals 1 and 2

I was flying from Ezeiza to Ushuaia and Terminal One was so small, crowded and terrible. I had to wake up at 2:00 AM for a 7:00 AM flight and we took off at 11:00 AM. Aerolineas Argentinas and Terminal 1 were terrible, but Terminal 2 was Great!

TERMINAL 2: I was flying on American Airlines from MIA-EZE and customs was ok, some kid barfed in the line and the customs line was a little long but the customs agent was nice and we got thru easily, it was modern and had restaurants, cafes and more.

Ushuaian Approach - SAWH View of EAU

If you go to SAWH, like I did. And grab a F seat you can get a very good view of EAU. Just wanted to share that fact!

Ushuaian Approach

I have been to SAWH Twice. The runway 25 approach is stunning! Try grabbing seat A of any row! It is crazy beautiful.

re: Aproximação

Reply to @HighTech: Compreendo que esteja animado para visitar Santiago e experimentar a beleza do aeroporto. No entanto, gostaria de lembrar que o uso de simuladores de voo, como o FSX, é apenas uma representação virtual da experiência de voar e pode não refletir com precisão a realidade.

Ao visitar Santiago, certifique-se de estar ciente das restrições de viagem atuais e de seguir as diretrizes de saúde e segurança relacionadas à pandemia COVID-19. Também é importante estar ciente das leis e regulamentos locais e respeitá-los durante sua estadia.

Santiago é uma cidade vibrante e emocionante, com muitas coisas para ver e fazer. Certifique-se de planejar sua visita com antecedência e aproveitar ao máximo sua experiência na cidade.

Rio de Janeiro/Galeão International Airport

Rio de Janeiro/Galeão – Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport is the main airport serving Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In 2019, it was the country's fourth-busiest airport by passenger traffic. It is named after the neighborhood of Galeão. Praia do Galeão is located in front of the original passenger terminal and where the galleon Padre Eterno was built in 1663. Since 5 January 1999 it is also named after Brazilian musician Antonio Carlos Jobim. Galeão Airport is explicitly mentioned in his composition Samba do Avião. It is the largest airport site in terms of area in Brazil.

Since 12 August 2014 it has been operated by the concessionary Rio Galeão, a consortium formed by the Brazilian investor Odebrecht and Changi Airport Group, with a minority participation of the government owned company Infraero, the previous operator. The new concessionary has been using the brand name RIOgaleão – Aeroporto Internacional Tom Jobim.

Fiedl 'ident' in CSV file uses old ICAO (SPIM) instead of ne

I am reporting that the CSV dump of the airport DB for the 'ident' field still uses the old ICAO, SPIM, instead of the new one, SPJC.

My understanding is that the 'ident' field is about ICAO code, from the Data dictionary page (

"The text identifier used in the OurAirports URL. This will be the ICAO code if available. Otherwise, it will be a local airport code (if no conflict), or if nothing else is available, an internally-generated code starting with the ISO2 country code, followed by a dash and a four-digit number."

Please ignore the ATSA Arrivals/Departures question

My mistake. I see the flights now.

Picture of sengsational

Why does ATSA not appear in the Arrivals/Departures?

The arrivals and departures include LATAM and many others, but not ATSA. Why not?

Picture of sengsational

When Will Flights Resume?

ATSA Usually flies here, but stopped with the 2020 pandemic. Please reply if flights resume.

Long Walk

We had a very long walk to get back to the same gate we arrived at. We had a 2 hour layover while the Air Canada Boeing 777 was being cleaned. Deplaning ramp took us to the arrivals level and to get to the departures level for the same gate it must have been at least 2 km and we had to go past the retail stores and through security just to get to the upper level to re-enter the same aircraft. Maybe this sort of thing will be rectified when the new terminal now under construction gets finished.
