I booked this flight on expedia.fr for its convenient departure time (11:38 am).
Recife Airport is a short taxi ride from the beach suburb of Boa Viagem. I arrived with plenty of time to spare and before checking in I familiarized myself with the terminal. Its best point is a superb indoor viewing area where a musician happened to be singing. Nice touch!
There was no queue at check-in for my flight to Salvador via Aracaju. I always check that my luggage is labelled correctly. This time it wasn't, as my bag was only going as far as AJU and for some strange reason the very pleasant check-in girl could only issue me with a boarding pass as far as Aracaju. Fortunately I speak Portuguese and she immediately disappeared to TRIP's ticket desk to sort out the problem. When she returned she assured me there would be no problems.
Before going through security, I spent the rest of the time outside the terminal enjoying the tropical air and the view of Recife's skyline with a coffee and a couple of cigarettes.
The flight was slightly delayed but soon we were bussed to the aircraft. On boarding via the rear steps I noticed the SKYTRAX logo on the fuselage. When I got home I did some research and discovered that TRIP had won Best Regional Airline in South America for the past two years.
My seat was 3A, well away from the landing gear on an ATR 72. We flew at a relatively low altitude and as there was little cloud cover I had spectacular views of the Brazilian coastline. Soft drinks and a packet of biscuits were served.
After 75 minutes we arrived at the small airport of Ararcaju. The captain and FO got off to have some chit-chat with the ground staff and a TRIP employee boarded the plane to give me my boarding pass to Salvador. Well done!
Within 30 minutes we were ready for take-off with those passengers joining the flight at Aracaju. This time there was more cloud cover so I settled back to enjoy my soft drink and packet of biscuits! 45 minutes later, the sky had cleared and we approached Salvador Airport from the south, flying across the city. Again, spectacular views.
My luggage arrived as promised. I see that TRIP has an extensive domestic network in Brazil and will definitely use again.
