Hi!

I am looking at getting from MVD to GRU and found the following option:
TAM Mercosur MVD-EZE-ASU-AGT-GRU
The MVD-EZE-ASU segment is one flight number, the ASU-AGT-GRU another, so I assume there is a plane change involved. The layover time is 30 minutes. Is this enough time to connect (with checked luggage)?

Thanks a lot!

Connections in ASU with PZ/TAM are smooth and you will not face any problem. However, why dont you fly MVD-GRU nonstop with TAM or PU?

Rgs,

Because it costs just as much and I like to fly into new places.  Wink

** sarcasm mode on **

You will struggle to run the miles from your arrival gate to your departure gate, tripping over thousands of people frantically trying to make their own tight connections as well...

You may want to go into Google maps and get a visual of the place. Very likely your arrival plane is going to be your departure plane.

Hey!!, have a little mercy!! in fact, ASU airport is small an it is true, you will deplane, make a turn around your own body and reboard the same plane. One suggestion, keep an eye to PZ´s flight attendants, beatifull ladies!!!

Based on what I saw on Google maps I was indeed impressed. The terminal looks good and it is of generous size for the traffic it gets. There is also a photo in wikipedia

The page says that Iberia is going back to ASU in 2009. I didn't know that. Is it going to be nonstop? What's the frequency?

Yeah, I should have looked it up first. Big grin
But AGT is even smaller. That will be fun to fly into...

G3 MVD-POA-GRU is another viable possibility. The flight is available 14x weekly nowadays.
G3 follows a low-cost model and it warrants a feasible choice connecting Montevideo with Sao Paulo area.

This is just a rumour... I hope it becomes real!

You will continue on the same airplane, so don't worry about the connection time! TAM will offer you free drinks and snacks in ASU  Wink

Well that sounds like some great service. Do they sell any kind of "souvenirs" there that I could pick up on the way?  Smile

They do sell some souvenirs from Paraguay, there are many little shops and two duty free shops!

And to say it better: I´m glad they finally improved the "marketplace" they had in the international zone, which was one of the poorest presentations of an international airport I have ever seen.

The DutyFree zone was when I was last in ASU (around Aug. 2007) much improved, there is now a reasonable Café (Havanna Club) and a bit more to see/buy.

PZ/JJ have a unique service there with their small but sufficient snack bar, accompanied with some typical music from Paraguay played live.

The 30 minutes transit time, in my opinion, is more than enough to enjoy all the thrills ASU international airport transit zone grant you!

I am sure it is not going to be possible, but I am still going to ask.  Smile
Any chance that I can get an immigration stamp for Paraguay and then hop onto the plane without actually exiting the sterile area? (How risqué).  Wink
