I read about it too. It was a judicious choice, given Aero Continente has an appalling safety record. Not that they have experienced any major crashes in recent years, thank God, but one too many "might have beens" and countless incidents such as undercarriage collapses, systems failures, engine failures etc. which, whether you like the airline or not, brings its lousy maintenance to the surface. Also, its founder, who created the airline in 1992, allegedly has drugs connections and has purportedly used Aero Continente aircraft in the past to ship drugs. Coming out of Peru, none of this would surprise me. And Peru has yet to produce a safe and successful airline (can you call TACA Peruvian?), given that Aero Peru and Faucett both foundered in recent years, TANS Peru is not too far off, Imperial Airways (flew Tu-134s) was grounded because their aircraft WERE being used to ship drugs, and now the Peruvians are unhappy that LAN is conquering the local market. Jesus, how does Bolivia somehow manage? Aero Continente is headed down the same road as VASP, it seems.
How do you say "12 months" in Estonian?
