Review of Aurora


Reviewed 4 December 2017

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.

A short (1 hour) flight on a Dash-8 turboprop from Sapporo-Chitose to Yuzhno Sakhalinsk on Sakhalin, Russia. I wasn't sure what to expect on a regional Russian carrier, but the check in ran smoothly, boarding was very easy, and the plane was barely one third full. The interior was clean and comfortable and a drink was served inflight. While the crew were not overly friendly, they were polite and spoke good English. We landed in Yuzhno Sakhalinsk on time. Khomutovo airport is a world apart from Chitose, and there are basically no facilities, so make sure you have a pick up arranged or you could find yourself with the building locked behind you on a cold dark afternoon in the carpark - alone!

I've been on flights in and out from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. There wasn't anything in particular to comment, but this trip the friendly staff did make a difference to the experience.

Business class of this flight doesn't offer much more - no special check-in counter at the local Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk airport (surprised that they make one for domestic flights but not international flights). The lounge is average, but is quieter compared to the comment waiting area.

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!
