Anyone book a flight with Isla Nena?

I booked a flight from Fajardo to Vieques with Isla Nena and they were really nice, but I only got a confirmation Number via phone, they said I just need to come in and sign? I figure it must be a small airport ..but with security theses days and no boarding pass upon entering? Anyone familiar with this let me know! Thanks!

I have used VAL similar. 2 engine prop that seats maybe 8 people. Airport does not have any gates. You walk out to your plane. They will weight you and then give you a seat at boarding. They need to balance the aircraft. It is very small and casual. There is a strict lugagge limit, with a surcharge for going over, that is if there is enough room to fit it. When did this, they took off a stack of garden hoses to fit our extra bag.

This will be absolutely nothing like going in an airport anywhere else in the world today post-9/11. You literally can just walk right in to the airport with all your stuff, write your name on a blank piece of paper with how much you weigh and they send you when they have a plane. There is a flight out every 30mins or so and they send you out in order of arrival.

Now if you have a reservation then you get to cut in line, but you still dont have to do anything with boarding passes or anything at all like that. Nothing to worry about, if something, I can assure you that this airport experience wont be like any other youve ever had before... its actually kind of fun!
