Hello everyone and thank you all for reading my Report.- This last weekend I had to attend to National Congress of Diabetes organized by FAD, Federacion Argentina de Diabetes.- As I live 1000km away from Cordoba, where the congress was going to be held, we decided to go by plane.- This included a 300km drive to the airport in Buenos Aires, AEP.- We had 2 options to get there, AR or 4M... In spite of my love to AR we chose 4M because it was cheaper.- The inbound flight was very early in the morning and I fell asleep. But here I go with the outbound from Cordoba, COR to AEP.-
We arrived at COR and hour and a half before our flight so we had a lot of time to spare.- Cordoba is nice airport and it's served by any carriers, including Copa Airlines, Lan, Gol, Aerolineas, Sol... The check in was easily done in the Self Check in Machines and as our flight was 30mins delayed we headed to a little bar so we could wait while having a drink.-
Curbside at COR.-

And we are out ! Thank you for reading! And see you soon, joaquin!
PS: This report was basically pics.- In spite of how much I love flying, this was the saddest flight of my life.- Crying all over and not in the mood for taking notes.-

Thank you for this report, very rare to find reports about domestic flights in Argentina, it was very interesting. Also first time I see AER airport pics from inside. Now that airport bus is classic! How old is it?
I have at least 2 israeli friends who were born in Cordoba, and the next commisioner of the Bank of Israel was also born there, believe it or not.
The flight looked OK, why didn't you like it?
Thx again, Jonathan

Quoting lychemsa (Reply 1): Those LAN snack boxes look awful. I noticed them on other reports.
If I go back to Argentina I will pick AR.
Hahaha I liked them.- I like AR better than 4M too.-

Thank you for reading! Yes I know.- AER is going under some reconstruction.- The bus should be from the 90's!
