Welcome to my 2nd part of Boliviana de Aviacion trip report!
About Viru Viru International Airport
This is Santa Cruz de la Sierra's airport located in Bolivia and is the largest international airport in the country. It handles both domestic and international routes and flies to Europe, North America and regional flights. This is a main hub for BOA and Amaszonas and has a single runway, 16/34. While this airport is small, it is still capable of handling larger aircraft such as Airbus A340-600, Boeing 777-300ER and even Boeing 747-400.

There are a few cafes at this airport including Juan Valdez Cafe.
My flight summary
BOA is actually quite a decent airline to fly with but you need to know that the airline's aircraft interior is quite basic, without the amenties such as the IFE system and charging ports so be prepared to bring along your own entertainment and make sure they are fully charged. For the airline's recently delivered A330, there are 3 of them on lease, they are replacement for the aging Boeing 767-300ER. Currently the A330s are deployed from VVI (Santa Cruz) in Bolivia to Miami (MIA) and Madrid (MAD), sometimes they are deployed on regional routes such as Bueno Aires (EZE).
