Hi everyone!

I will be flying into SNU next month, and I was wondering if there was anyone else here who has flown to/from that airport. I have been to Santa Clara, but never to SNU, so I don't really know what to expect. What are the facilities there like? If it matters, I'm flying in on Air Transat, from YVR and YYC.

Thanks!

P.S. I assume that my flight will be operated by an A310, but is there a chance I will get an A332/333?

Pretty minimal I would say. You'll have your standard small terminal building with 2 or 3 customs agents at the most. But seriously, who cares. You'll be on vacation, so sip those pina colada's and have a blast.

TS200 and TS201 shows an A310 during the entire 2006-2007 winter season. Sorry dude!

Ah... that's almost better though. I've been on an A332 before, so the A310 will be a new type for me. Thanks for the info!


Edit: P.S. Where did you find the aircraft info? Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't find it anywhere on the TS site. Thanks again.

Just go to www.airtransat.com, pick English, then go under schedules. Pick Leaving From "Calgary" and then "Going to" Santa Clara. I usually don't pick any specific dates; it'll list them all for you. It will be an A310 all season.

Santa Clara, that brings back memories..  Smile

When I was a kid that was just pretty much an all-military airport. Plenty of russian military helicopters and Migs, I never saw a civilian plane flying in or out over Santa Clara.

In the flight tracker I've seen Skyservice and JetsGo flying there before. I'm curious to know what airlines use MUSC at the moment.

Hehe... thanks... My problem that I was just checking from Vancouver, which didn't show the flight.

Hmm... I bet that there'll be some old military equipment lying around then! Does Cubana still serve the airport? I loved seeing all the commercial soviets in HAV!

Air Transat, Canjet, Skyservice and Westjet use the airport for charter operations.

Cubana does not fly to Santa Clara.

Maybe, let us know when you come back! Maybe some old MIG-21s and some interesting russian helicopters like the Mi-8s and Mi-24 hinds. Perhaps some civilian An-2s or a DC-3.

Wikipedia (not the most reliable source) lists Santa Clara on their list of cities served. Back then they didn't, but there's the possiblity of subsidiaries Aerogaviota or Aerotaxi, again maybe not. It would be interesting to see what's there now. Back then as I remember the place was surrounded by Australian pines and you couldn't really get close enough to see much.
