Ushuaia International Airport is located 4 km (2.5 mi) south of the center of Ushuaia, a city on the island of Tierra del Fuego in the Tierra del Fuego Province of Argentina. This small international airport was opened in 1995, replacing an older one. The airport has been used by various distinct airlines at different periods. It is the world's southernmost international airport and is often used by passengers as a cruise-ship gateway to the Antarctic. Ushuaia International Airport is fit to receive airplanes as large as the Boeing 747. Tower Air used to operate such types into the airport, and Aerolíneas Argentinas operated 747-400s into the airport during events of high passenger numbers (such as entire cruise-ship passenger payloads) until retiring this aircraft type in February, 2012. Two chartered Air France Concordes also visited in the past: F-BTSD arriving from Buenos Aires and continuing to Santiago, Chile, in early 1999; the second arriving from Easter Island, Chile and continuing to Buenos Aires prior to the cessation of most Concorde charter flights on July 25, 2000. Condor, LTU and Lufthansa also offered charter flights from Germany and First Choice Airways from the United Kingdom. It also offers charter flights to Maputo, Mozambique. The airport's name reflects Argentina's claims of sovereignty over the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas), and could be translated as "Ushuaia - Argentine Malvinas International Airport".

Cataratas del Iguazú International Airport, also known as Mayor Carlos Eduardo Krause Airport, is an airport in Misiones Province, Argentina serving the city of Puerto Iguazú and providing access to the nearby Iguazú Falls. The airport covers an area of 1,804 ha (4,460 acres) and is operated by Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 S.A..Iguazu Falls, Iguazú Falls, Iguassu Falls or Iguaçu Falls are waterfalls of the Iguazu River on the border of the Brazilian state of Paraná and the Argentinian province of Misiones. The falls divide the river into the upper and lower Iguazu. The Iguazu River rises near the city of Curitiba. It flows through Brazil for most of its course. Below its confluence with the San Antonio River, the Iguazu River forms the boundary between Argentina and Brazil. The name "Iguazu" comes from the Guarani or Tupi words "y", meaning "water", and "ûasú ", meaning "big". Legend has it that a god planned to marry a beautiful woman named Naipí, who fled with her mortal lover Tarobá in a canoe. In rage, the god sliced the river, creating the waterfalls and condemning the lovers to an eternal fall. The first European to find the falls was the Spanish conquistador Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca in 1541. On November 11 of 2011, Iguazu Falls was announced as one of the seven winners of the New Seven Wonders of Nature by the New Seven Wonders of the World Foundation. Iguazu Falls is located where the Iguazu River tumbles over the edge of the Paraná Plateau, 23 kilometres (14 mi) upriver from the Iguazu's confluence with the Paraná River. Numerous islands along the 2.7-kilometre-long (1.7 mi) edge divide the falls into numerous separate waterfalls and cataracts, varying between 60 to 82 metres (197 to 269 ft) high. The number of these smaller waterfalls fluctuates from 150 to 300, depending on the water level. About half of the river's flow falls into a long and narrow chasm called the Devil's Throat (Garganta del Diablo in Spanish or Garganta do Diabo in Portuguese). The Devil's Throat is U-shaped, 82 metres high, 150 m wide, and 700 m long (269×490×2,300 ft). Placenames have been given also to many other smaller falls, such as San Martin Falls, Bossetti Falls and many others. About 900 metres (2,950 ft) of the 2.7-kilometre (1.7 mi) length does not have water flowing over it. The edge of the basalt cap recedes by 3 mm (0.1 in) per year. The water of the lower Iguazu collects in a canyon that drains in the Paraná River, a short distance downstream from the Itaipu Dam. The junction of the water flows marks the border between Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay. There are points in the cities of Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, Puerto Iguazú, Argentina, and Ciudad del Este, Paraguay, which have access to the Iguazu River, where the borders of all three nations can be seen, a popular tourist attraction for visitors to the three cities. The Iguazu Falls are arranged in a way that seems like a reverse letter "J". The border between Brazil and Argentina runs through the Devil's Throat. On the right bank is the Brazilian territory, which has just over 20% of the jumps of these falls, and the left side jumps are Argentine, which make up almost 80% of the falls. There are two international airports close to Iguazú Falls: the Argentine Cataratas del Iguazú International Airport (IGR) and the Brazilian Foz do Iguaçu International Airport (IGU). Argentina's airport is 25 kilometres (16 mi) from the city of Iguazu but closer to the Falls hotels than its Brazilian counterpart. There is bus and taxi service from and to the Airport-Falls. Brazil's airport is between Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil and the falls. LAN Airlines and Aerolíneas Argentinas have direct flights from Buenos Aires to Iguazu International Airport Krause. Several Brazilian airlines, such as TAM Airlines, GOL, Azul, WebJet, offer service from the main Brazilian cities to Foz do Iguaçu. The falls can be reached from the two main towns on either side of the falls: Puerto Iguazú in Argentina and Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil, as well as from Ciudad del Este, Paraguay, on the other side of the Paraná river from Foz do Iguaçu. The falls are shared by the Iguazú National Park (Argentina) and Iguaçu National Park (Brazil). The two parks were designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1984 and 1987, respectively. The first proposal for a Brazilian national park aimed at providing a pristine environment to "future generations", just as "it had been created by God" and endowed with "all possible preservation, from the beautiful to the sublime, from the picturesque to the awesome" and "an unmatched flora" located in the "magnificent Iguaçú waterfalls". These were the words used by Andre Rebouças, an engineer, in his book "Provinces of Paraná, Railways to Mato Grosso and Bolivia", which started up the campaign aimed at preserving the Iguaçu Falls in 1876, when Yellowstone National Park, the first national park in the world, was four years old.

Several others would die before they could be rescued. Over the next two months, the survivors endured harsh winter weather, avalanches, & resorted to extreme measures to survive. The chartered flight departed on October 12th while transporting the Old Christians Club rugby union team along with members' friends & family from Montevideo, Uruguay heading for Santiago, Chile for a match. But due to bad weather conditions, the plane landed in Mendoza, Argentina to wait out the storm. It departed again the next day with its 45 passengers to finish its journey, which included flying over the Andes mountain range. Because of the weather, the pilot was unable to fly his plane over the mountains & instead, was forced to fly around them. On that particular day, however, the cloud cover was so intense that it caused the pilot to miscalculate where the plane was in relation to the mountains. As a result, the plane crashed into the side of a mountain near Malargue, Argentina, instantly killing 12 of its passengers upon impact. Within days, six more passengers—including the only doctor on board—died, leaving just 27 people alive. The survivors were left with very little food & water & virtually no winter clothing or footwear to protect them from the cold, snowy weather. Two medical students onboard the flight survived & were able to erect makeshift splints for various injuries, including broken arms & legs. When the plane did not arrive to Santiago as expected, Chile, Argentina, & Uruguay sent out search parties to find the missing plane. But because the plane was white, it blended in with the snow, making it nearly impossible to find. The search team was called off after eight days, a fact that the survivors were aware of since they had a transistor radio & heard the news of the search team giving up. Since the passengers had little food with no means of obtaining any more as there were no animals or vegetation to be found, the group resorted to eating the flesh of dead passengers to survive after much deliberation. Some of the passengers had reservations about doing this but eventually decided to do so in order to stay alive. One more month had passed & the survivors were still stranded when suddenly, an avalanche killed eight more people. And by December 12th–nearly two months after the crash, two men from the group decided to take a dangerous journey seeking help for the group. The trek lasted over a week & involved scaling a mountain then hiking down into a valley. But Nando Parrado & Roberto Canessa ultimately succeeded in making contact with another human being. On December 20th, 70 days after the crash, Parrado and Canessa came across three men on horseback, to whom they communicated their situation. The riders realized they were survivors of the crash & immediately sought help. In the end, the remaining survivors were rescued from the wreckage after an arduous rescue mission that concluded two days before Christmas. 16 passengers total survived 72 days after the crash. Since this incredible event, books, movies, & documentaries have been published recalling the crash & the ensuing struggle for survival. A feature film entitled Alive: Miracle in the Andes was also produced in 1993. Number 6: China Airlines Flight 611 May 25th, 2002: China Airlines Flight 611 is leaving Taiwan for Hong Kong when it disintegrates in mid-air, killing all 225 passengers on board. To this day, it remains the deadliest aviation accident in Taiwan's history. The plane was flying at approximately 35,000 feet 20 minutes after takeoff when they lost contact with air traffic control. The plane disintegrated in mid-air soon after, with the wreckage crashing into the Taiwan Strait. The crew—which was comprised of Captain Ching-Fong Yi, first officer Yea Shyong Shieh, & flight engineer Sen Kua Choa—were all very experienced & did not appear to make any errors that led to the accident. A recovery effort turned up the remains of 176 people, many of which were found floating in the ocean. An investigation into the

Get more Tips here! www.destinationtips.com If you head into the TSA line outfitted with the right clothes, you can make your next security stop much less aggravating, for you and the other passengers around you. 1. DON’T Wear a Skirt TSA agents are obligated to make sure that your flowing skirt isn’t hiding some contraband. 2. DO Leave the Metal Bracelets and Necklaces at Home Not only is jewelry a great way to set off metal detectors, it can also be time-consuming as heck to remove and then put back on. 3. DON’T Do Anything Fancy With Your Hair Updos might get you singled out because they could be hiding some kind of illicit substances. Too many bobby pins in your hair might set off the metal detector, which could get you pulled aside. In the eyes of a TSA agent, even long, flowing hair holds the possibility of some possible harm. 4. DO Leave the Lace-Ups At Home Unless your a geriatric or you’re in a wheelchair, you’ll likely need to take your shoes off when approaching security. So, unless you want to eat up valuable minutes unlacing your boots or tennis shoes, you should consider just wearing some slip-ons. 5. DO Wear Clean Socks Since you can count on having to take your shoes off, you should know that you’re going to be walking around without them for at least a few feet. 6. DO Wear Easily Removable Layers The more layers you’re wearing when you try to get through the scanner, the tougher a time you’ll have. If you need to wear a hoodie, make sure it’s a zip up so you can easily put it on and take it off. 7. DON’T Wear an Underwire Bra If you wear an underwire bra, you’re upping your chances of tripping the metal detectors. 8. DON’T Leave Liquids and Gels in Your Carry-On If you’re the kind of person who likes to keep a bottle of water on you, you can always carry an empty one through security and then get it filled once you’re through security. In fact, a lot of restaurants on the other side of security will fill up your water bottle with ice and water for free. (9. Wear a Smile) :)

Barcelona–El Prat Airport Barcelona–El Prat Airport (IATA: BCN, ICAO: LEBL) (Catalan: Aeroport de Barcelona – el Prat, Spanish: Aeropuerto de Barcelona-El Prat), also known as Barcelona Airport, is an international airport located 12 km (7.5 mi) southwest of the centre of Barcelona, Spain, lying in the municipalities of El Prat de Llobregat, Viladecans, and Sant Boi. It is the main airport of Catalonia, the second largest in Spain behind Madrid Barajas Airport and one of the busiest in the world. In 2015 Barcelona Airport handled a record 39.7 million passengers, up 5.7% from 2014. It is a main base for the main Spanish airlines like Vueling and a hub for Iberia or Air Europa, as well as the Irish low-cost giant Ryanair and the Irish carrier Norwegian Air International. The airport mainly serves domestic European destinations, also having flights to North America (United States of America and Canada), South America (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Peru), Middle East (Egypt, Israel, Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Qatar), Asia (China, Singapore and South Korea), and Africa (Senegal, Gambia, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Ghana and Cape Verde). The Barcelona–Madrid air shuttle service, known as the "Puente Aéreo" (in Spanish), or "Pont Aeri" (in Catalan) literally "Air Bridge", was the world's busiest route until 2008, with the highest number of flight operations (971 per week) in 2007. The schedule has been reduced since February 2008, when a Madrid–Barcelona high-speed rail line was opened, covering the distance in 2 hours 30 minutes, and quickly became popular. Barcelona's first airfield, located at El Remolar, began operations in 1916. However, it did not have good expansion prospects, so a new airport at El Prat opened in 1918. The first plane was a Latécoère Salmson 300 which arrived from Toulouse with final destination Casablanca. The airport was used as headquarters of the Aeroclub of Catalonia and the base for the Spanish Navy's Zeppelin fleet. Scheduled commercial service began in 1927 with an Iberia service to Madrid Cuatro Vientos Airport. This was Iberia's first route. During the time of the Second Spanish Republic El Prat was one of the bases of LAPE (Líneas Aéreas Postales Españolas). In 1948, a runway was built (now called runway 07-25); in the same year the first overseas service was operated by Pan American World Airways to New York City, using a Lockheed Constellation. Between 1948 and 1952, a second runway was constructed (runway 16–34), perpendicular to the previous, also taxiways were constructed and a terminal to accommodate passengers. In 1963, the airport reached one million passengers a year. A new control tower was built in 1965. In 1968, a new terminal was opened, which still exists and is in use as what is now Terminal 2B. On 3 August 1970, Pan American World Airways inaugurated regular service between Barcelona, Lisbon and New York, operated by a Boeing 747. On 4 November of the same year, Iberia began the "Air-shuttle" service between Barcelona and Madrid–Barajas. A few years later, in 1976, a terminal was built specifically for Iberia's air-shuttle service and a terminal exclusively for cargo, an annexed mail service and an aircraft ramp for air cargo. In 1977, the airport handled over 5 million passengers annually. From the late seventies to the early nineties, the airport was stalled in traffic and investments until the 1992 Summer Olympics held in Barcelona. El Prat underwent a major development consisting of the modernization and expansion of the existing terminal, which became known as Terminal B, and the construction of two further terminals flanking that, known as Terminals A and C respectively.[12] The development included jetways for direct access to the aircraft. This reform was designed by architect Ricardo Bofill Levi. In 1992, a new control tower was inaugurated also designed by Ricardo Bofill Levi, but this was replaced by another much needed control tower in 2006. The new Terminal 1 was inaugurated on 16 June 2009, covering 545,000 m2 (5,866,331 sq ft). 70% of today's flights operate from Terminal 1. The old Terminals A, B and C are now known as Terminals 2A, 2B and 2C. Terminal 2B with artwork by Miró Due to the strong drop in air traffic after 1999 and the crisis in the aviation sector in 2001 many charter operations from Girona and Reus were diverted to El Prat, which helped the airport to survive the crisis. Barcelona Airport On 1 February 2014, Barcelona–El Prat was the first Spanish airport to receive a daily flight with the Airbus A380-800, on the Emirates route to Dubai International Airport. Emirates also offers a second daily flight, but with Boeing 777 aircraft. Since June 2016 the second daily flight to Dubai is flown with another A380. In September 2016, Norwegian Air Shuttle announced flights from Barcelona to Los Angeles, Oakland and Newark in June 2017, and Fort Lauderdale in August 2017.
