First thing to do is to buy a written ticket and then get on board, sit where you like, doors are closed and off .. No searches, security checks or safety drills, fasten your belt is done. Almost all the passengers are locals and carry-on baggage can be black plastic rubbish bags, plastic buckets, nets, or even trays of eggs tied together with string. Checked in baggage can also be in plastic bags, cartons or paper parcels and is not subject to any control. although Dani's Villages is being changed to become accessible, the Safety issues was not well done to ensure that it is safe for tourists to travel through Planes.
