Has LAB closed for good or are they being revived?
Wasn't there a thread saying they're coming back?

Thanks

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.

It would be cool if they ordered A320's or B737's!

Bring LAB back to their former glory.

--)) 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.

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.

I found it very interesting that there is a flight to Uyuni (Salt desert) operated 3 x week from Cochabamba on a Super DC-3. No flights from La Paz.

In cooperation with Aerosur. Lineas Aerias Canedo. Here is a video.

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.

This service ended somewhere in Oct/Nov 2008, quite sure it haven't been restarted.

Lots of rumors about start up of flights to Salta/Potosi/Sucre from Cochabamba with both the DC-3S and their C-46, unfortunately no news on that.

There are no scheduled flights to Potosi at the moment I am afraid, and there haven't been for at least 1½ year.
