AeroSur will begin non-stop flights between Miami and Cochabamba, Bolivia on April 5 2009.

5L 558 MIA 2330-0530 CBB 762 Su

There is no return non-stop. All CBB-MIA services will be via Santa Cruz.

Quoting MAH4546 (Thread starter):

Will they be able to fill a 767-200 from Cochabamba even if its to Miami?? I wonder why they decided to go non-stop from there without the usual stop in Santa Cruz or at least La Paz?.

Best of luck to them, got a soft spot for Bolivia

Seems they will also operate 4xweek CBB/MIA nonstop.

CBB is a large city with terrible international flight connections. I bet the choice of 5L to operate nonstop to CBB from MIA comes due to AA's strong position at LPB and VVI and no service to CBB.

I flew to MIA some two weeks ago with AA's nonstop service from VVI, the same evening 5L ha their nonstop: There were dozens of persons from CBB on both flights, so making a nonstop ex CBB to MIA would for me also be a reason to use 5L's service.

More news from Bolivia are up to come: LB is operating quite reasonably by now; BOA, startup, is supposed to start on March 21st; SKY Chile seems to have requested flights to Bolivia - I have not been informed to what airport - and Cubana requested flights (again) to VVI.

What type of aiprlanes will BOA use and what destinations are they looking at?

As far as LB operating quite reasonably, very good to hear.

Cochabamba is at pretty high elevation (granted, nothing like LPB), perhaps that is why there is no northbound nonstop?

2 x 733's already available and at plattform at CBB airport in full colors;

LPB/CBB/VVI/return flights are the ones forseen in the first stage.

The airport is at around 2580 m altitude. Perhaps an a.netter can help us define if a 763 (the aircraft 5L will use, ex-Ethiopian) is apt for CBB/MIA nonstop service?

Never flown a 767, but that should not be a problem at all.... I suppose high elevation its a problem on a 767 when you start talking 8-9 hours, not a 6 hour flight to MIA.... again I don't know, but I don't think its an issue, too short of a flight.

Well best of luck. Not the best time to start an airline anywhere in the world, but still we'll keep our fingers crossed.

Isn't it a 762 they're using for MIA?

Will this follow the same schedule as what MAH4546 posted above? Will this be the same 762 they're currently using for VVI-MIA (CP-2521) or a new addition to the fleet?

The 762 shouldn´t find any trouble (if they are -ER versions). They fly from BOG (same elevation as CBB) to Europe non-stop (9-10 hour flights).

Gongrats to Cochabamba. Im glad to hear LB is operating, how many 727s do they have now? LB is a piece of Latin aviation history.

If I could add to RCS763AV's questions, where do LB's and Aerosur's 727s stop when they fly to MIA??? at one point they stopped in CCS, then I believe PTY.. is it still PTY

It is not 4w.

MIA-CBB will operate on Sundays only; the other three weekly flights will be non-stop to VVI.

5L flies MIA-HAV, but I don't know how the 72' gets from HAV to Bolivia.

CBB is a large city with terrible international flight connections.

PZ Tam MercoSur which was overtaken by TAM mainline flew some months ago the triangular ASU-CBB-VVI-ASU. The route is not available anymore.

You have a good point here.
It seems that 5L VVI-MIA-CBB-VVI tried to emulate the triangular AA MIA-LPB-VVI-MIA.

Still available ASU/CBB service, sometimes vía VVI, sometimes nonstop.

Actually AA is very strong with publicity and have great AAdvantage offers in Bolivia = strong competition to 5L. I think 5L is smart to offer direct CBB flights because you win a lot of time landing directly here instead of LPB/VVI + transfer to CBB.
