What is the current status of the airline, Aerosur? There are rumours that is has ceased operations. I have flight booked to Sucre, from La Paz in May. Do you have any advice if the flight is canceled?

I heard that all international flights have been canceled, but they try to fly limited domestic routes as of now. I had Aerosur domestic flights for next week, am trying to cancel (doubt will get my money back) and booked already with BOA.

AeroSur cancellation
by: Anonymous

We had a flight for tomorrow from Cuzco to La Paz cancelled last week with no alternative offered. It seems that they may only be doing domestic flights now and who knows how long that will last

Things are touch and go with Aerosur

Things are now changing very quickly with Aerosur. Their employees held a small protest for a few hours a few days ago. We're hearing some flights are being delayed or cancelled. There are still flights but it's really hard to say what will happen, or how quickly. What Aerosur employees tell us on the phone and what we are now seeing in the news over the past couple of days tell two completely different stories. It would seem it might be in your best interests to stick with a more reliable airline for now, especially if your trip is a few months away.

I have heard that Aerosur ceased operations yet I seen that there are flights out of La Paz to Santa Cruz. So is the airline still operating as of today?

A nightmare!!!

Forget Aerosur!!! they dumped over 25 people, on April 13th, who were flying from Santa Cruz, Bolivia in Miami; these passangers had paid tickets to Dulles in Washington, D.C. and were told they were on their own in Miami. REAL NICE AEROSUR!!!

Aerosur seems to be solving the problem
by: Anonymous

Aerosur just announced the arrival of a brand new airplane, a huge son of a gun, which will be used for its Bolivia-Spain flights. So flights to Madrid are now being reinstated. The problems the company is having with the government, however, continue. The government is doing everything it can to eliminate the competition.

Aerosur canceled flights to Madrid

This article, published this morning, states that Aerosur canceled flights between Bolivia and Madrid, which resulted in protests in both countries. If for any reason this affects national flights between now and May, and you do end up having to purchase another ticket to Sucre on another airline, the cost is usually about $70 one way.

Aerosur is still in business

I just called Aerosur for you. They tell me that the only change they have made, is that they have reduced the frequency of flights between Bolivia and Madrid, Spain. That's it. All other Aerosur flights throughout South America and between the U.S. and cities in South America and national flights between Bolivian cities are flying normally with the same number of destinations and the same flight frequency as always. You can contact Aerosur directly (I know getting an answer online through their site is very difficult) by calling them. From the US you would dial:


If for any reason the status of this airline should change between now and your trip in May, the other airline that offers flights to Sucre is BOA (Boliviana de Aviación) the Bolivian government-owned airline, several times a week.
