Bolivian Airline Aerosur

Summary: Aerosur is a private Bolivian airline with routes to La Paz, Cochabamba, Santa Cruz, Sucre, Tarija, Trinidad, Cobija, and Puerto Suárez. Internationally it was flying to Buenos Aires, San Paolo, Madrid, Miami and many other cities in South America; however, it began to experience some legal and financial problems when the government-owned airline BOA was created, and as of early 2012, the future of this airline seems uncertain, at least in terms of international flights, many of which have been cancelled. We will keep this page updated occasionally, as news on this airline permits.

Airline Information

Aerosur began operating as a national airline in Bolivia in 1992 and expanded its operations to include charter services and flights to some international destinations. Based out of Viru Viru International Airport in Santa Cruz, it offers domestic flights between Santa Cruz, Cochabamba, La Paz, Cobija (Pando), Puerto Suárez, (southeastern Santa Cruz) and Rurrenabaque (Beni), and small cities in between.

There is no self-check in or curb-side check in for this airline at airports in Bolivia. Always check with the airline and/or your travel agent prior to your trip concerning issues such as government holidays (they differ at various times throughout the year); flight delays (infrequent) and cancellations (also infrequent); and special assistance you need during your flight or upon arrival.

Bolivian airports are small, very basic and limited in terms of the services provided. Only major cities have customs or immigration offices. Always check with your travel agent and the Bolivian embassy or consulate in your country to make sure you have all the proper documentation for your flight to Bolivia.

The following are Aerosur ticket sales centers and ticket counter hours in Bolivia. In addition, in Bolivia you can purchase tickets for flights to Santa Cruz, Cochabamba, La Paz and other destinations the airline serves at most Bolivian travel agencies.
