Since May HiFly Malta is operating flights between TLS and XFW. This year they also acquired 3 A319's (probably for this service between the Airbus-plants) they have registered them as 9H-XFW, 9H-TLS and 9H-LOL :)

Both Argentina and Uruguay are suffering problems in their electricity networks, along with parts of Brasil and Paraguay. An estimated 48 million people have no electricity. Has anyone an idea in how far this causes problems for airports in these countries? Or do they have back-ups?

The AIP is supposed to mention that for each individual aerodrome. Here in BE I know that EBAW Antwerp has its own emergency generator, so one can expect them at similar-sized airports. Question is: how long will the fuel last? That's what the AIP does not say.

EBAW AD 2.15 Other Lighting, Secondary Power Supply
1 ABN / IBN location, characteristics and hours of operation NIL
2 LDI location and lighting NIL
WDI location and lighting Next to apron 2 (lighted)
At THR 11 (lighted)
At THR 29 (lighted)
3 Taxiway edge lighting TWY A1, A2, B1, B2, E, F and J
Taxiway centre line lighting TWY A1, A2, F and K
4 Secondary power supply To all lighting at aerodrome
Switch-over time 0 SEC
5 Remarks NIL
