At what time should I arrive at the airport to travel with Viva?

Always arriving at your destination on time is your goal and ours too!
Make sure you have your documents ready: boarding pass (printed or digital on your cell phone), identity document, and the other corresponding documents according to your national or international trip.
Be aware of the hours when you must arrive at the airport so that we can all travel without haste.
