Guys,

I was talking to a friend of mine from Aerosur and he told me that they are already operating a B742 SRZ/REC/MAD and backwards 03 x week.

I haven´t see any news about it, nor even a photo of this B742. Do anybody has any information about this?

Tks

That one is a B741 introduced very recently, the wet-leased B742 is EC-IZL, leased from Air Plus Comet.

Maybe EC-IZL is not needed anymore with the "new" B741, the fact is that EC-IZL has been operating for Aerosur for some months.

I thought all commercial traffic to Santa Cruz went to VVI, but I don't know much about Bolivia. Am I confused?

Hi Richard, it's a confirmed flight VVI-REC-MAD with 741. 3x weekly and it's a new development.
I'm sure you will receive further info on this flight.

A nice addition to all the Latin American carriers that grace MAD's skies. Congrats AeroSur and congrats Bolivia.

BTW, you can barely make it out, but you can also see the L-1011 that LAB is wet-leasing to operate their lucrative MAD service.

Some more that I found:

Very interesting development. Do they have traffic rights /5th freedom rights to/from REC?

Any chance they could use the B747 VVI-GRU?

I wonder how long will this new venture last!!! Something tells me that those 747s under Aerosur's brand won't stay more than 1 year or so.. If LAB couldn't make non-stop MAD services with 767 work, how will AErosur manage to succeed. IMO, this is a very thin market for an airline with almost no international recognition.

What do u guys think????

Well, just think of Air Madrid, such a new airline and sucessfully linking MAD and BCN with many latinamerican destinations. I believe that if AeroSur manages to deliver a reliable service, cheap fares and punctuality, they'll make a profit. Lets see what happens!

Actually, MAD was one of LAB's two most profitable operations. When MAD and MIA were dropped from the network, LAB automatically lost 50% of its revenues.

When AeroSur took over it initially started operating with Air Plus Comet's A310s, however, the demand was such that it was realized that a larger capacity aircraft was needed, so it was replaced by an ex-Aerolineas Argentinas 742 wet-leased from Air Plus.

It is mentioned that IB is extremely interested in starting its own flights into Bolivia. In preparation for that, the airline has already opened a ticket office in Santa Cruz de la Sierra.

BTW, do you guys realize that that particular 741 that AeroSur is operating is flying with 530 seats accross the Atlantic? Apparently, the reason why they got that aircraft was its high-density capacity (Ex JAL 741-SR) as its ability to squeeze so many passengers in one flight will allow the airline to offer the cheapest seats between Viru Viru and Madrid. The aicraft is wet-leased from Logistic Air.

Give them the chance!!! AeroSur is having the balls to bring a B747 (and i'm not being biased by the size) to a difficult region in the world, with a difficult country (political changes at anytime), with still a competitor called LB which is considered the 'flag carrier' as well as many other issues... they're changing Bolivia's aviation and writing the new history, lest wish them the best.

What an eye, you're totally right!!! I read in another forum they were going to fly 2 B747s, the one above and a B747-200.

The 747 to MAD is due to the immigration, lots of Bolivians moving to Spain as no Visa is required (yet).

Aerosur also plans to expand services withing Southamerica, Includuing SCL. Who knows if the can use their VVI geographic position to handle southern-Soutamerican traffic to Spain...

Thanks Ricardo. .I wonder if there's a possibilty either the L1011 or one of the 747s might be seen at Miami?

Indeed, in the old Aeromexico livery that would've been one splendid 747

I wish Aerosur changed that livery, because honestly LAB's is a lot better. Put some color to that fuselage at least!
