evening flights to IGU airport to be cancelled - runway work

IGU airport will have some maintenance work done to its runway in late evening/night during certain dates... as such, flights will be cancelled and/or rescheduled on certain dates and times.

check with your airline. Latam has already announced certain flight changes; other airlines should follow soon...

first repair period is between Nov. 27 and Dec. 20, 2017...

maintenance work will stop for year-end peak travel period...

then another period between Jan. 8, 2018 and Feb. 6, 2018.

maintenance work stops again for peak Carnaval period

then work resumes Feb. 20, 2018

[IGU airport has nonstops flights to GRU, CGH, CWB, VCP, Rio, FLN, POA, CNF airports in Brazil as well as to LIM (Peru)].

Could get interesting with IGR in AR closing its airport Mar15th for 30 days and all planes diverting to Foz.

IGU is in the planning stage on building "jet walks" .Needed, I have seen so many slip on the roll up ramp stairs.

Hope for on time schedule of work, but I do not hold my breath

what is also interesting is that the third maintenance period apparently goes from after Carnaval 2018 into late 2018.... if someone can confirm that with local sources (not sure if airline schedules already reflect these possible changes that far in advance)....

so the IGU evening runway maintenance work would then overlap with the shutdown of the IGR airport in Argentina in March 2018 too... guess IGU will be busy daytime during that period...
