Some airport runways are up to 200 or more meters wide although the average width of an airport with jet service is 45 meters or 150 feet. In this case the Passo Fundo Airport in Brazil is only 23 meters or 75 feet wide. As a result the restrictions are very tight for Avianca which is the only airline allowed to operate jet service at the time of the filming (2013).
Crosswind is limited to 15kts as it would be virtually impossible to land otherwise, landings are not allowed in rain or wet runway and only Captains are allowed to land or takeoff at this airport,

On this short video you can see the final approach and landing JusPlane filmed in the cockpit of the AVIANCA Fokker 100.

The complete program is nearly 5 hours long, includes 4 flights on the Fokker 100 and 6 on the Airbus A319.
