I've scanned the forum and couldn't find anythiong related to this. However, if somebody did mention this already, please lock the thread and we'll be all happy.  

According to the Agencia Boliviana de Información (direct link to the article), Lloyd Aéreo >Boliviano is returning to the sky, flying a single 727-200 on the route Cochabamba-Santa Cruz-La Paz- Cochabamba, after almost three years of absence. The plane is CP-1367, and should start operating today. The article also mentions they have plans to operate with CP-1366, "which only needs the engines to be installed" (!)

Considering the very long history of this airline, these are sure good news to hear. Welcome back LB!

I expect their management focus to obtain new planes as soon as possible, but is good to see an airline flying again.

As a side note, a news service in Brazil mentioned that now they don't have any plans to fly international.



New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

The accident of the LAB's 727 in Trinidad could have been another fact that undermined the presence of the Bolivian airline lately.

In 1990 I lived in Bolivia and flew on their 727s a number of times. I am happy to hear them take to the skies again.

I'm sure I read a rumour earlier this year that they hoped to reintroduce the B727-100. Any chance of this?

This is good news!
But how old are CP-1367/68, bacause I flew on a 727 (think it was CP-861) which was 34 years old already back in 2004, which means it would turn 40 in alittle more than a year! That would be kind of cool. Big grin
