International flights are next step but first they want to consolidate national flights.
Right now the are flying one 727-200 if I am not wrong, CP1366 with winglets, but are as far as I know, preparing further aircraft to resume flights.
--)) They will continue with B727's for a good while as there is no cash for new aircraft. They have one 733, which they are trying to reactivate too, pending Government approval. But that should be it for a while with modern aircraft, I fear.
Quoting Semsem (Reply 5): What about Aerosur? I thought they were the Bolivian airline.
Aerosur is getting ready for the battle with LB taking some pax away, but with the new Government startup BOA (2x 733's they are more worried. Aerosur is however prepared because in the time LB did not operate they worked hard on their international net, which is quite large by now. They operate a mix of 722/732/767/743 + codeshare with several airlines.
Tam Militar offer BAE flights and also a mix of propeller aircraft;
Aerocon offer Metroliner services sometimes in codeshare with Aerosur.

In 1990 LAB was the primer, if not only, Bolivian Airline. TAM (Transportes Aereo Militar) had some service between Bolivian Cities. I flew on LAB from Miami to Cochabamba with stops in Caracas, Manous and La Paz. They had a great safty record and were a credit to Bolivia. I hope they are able to resurrect.
