The aircraft entered a hold to burn off fuel and returned to Ushuaia for a safe landing on runway 25 at a higher than normal speed about 65 minutes after departure.

Information received from the airport indicates the aircraft had suffered asymmetric flaps. However, the crew reported in flight, that the equipment door had remained open, therefore the aircraft could not be pressurized prompting the crew to return to Ushuaia.
