A new plane, a friendly crew, all on schedule. We have chosen places "space +", it was really good choice. Flying by Aurora frequently, completely satisfied.

The service of Arora is good and pretty much on time. The aircraft are old and have been repainted. The flights are good for 2 - 3 hour journey but not for long haul travel. Arora should be considered as flight which will reach you from A to B with no hassles! No in flight entertainment in Business!
