About Aerosur

Tue Aug 14, 2007 3:36 am

Hi guys,

just a simple question, supposed to be discussed in this forum...

has the 757 wet-leased from Ryan International Airlines enough range to operate from VVI to MAD directly? Supposed that must to be an intermediate stop in FOR or SID but appreciated your answers.

Regards,

Gerard

No, it does not. They only have one, and it used exclusively to Miami, IIRC, and is operated with Miami-based Ryan International cabin crew.

It is rumored that 747-312 F-GSKY Ex Corsair which is stored at Goodyear is supposed to go to Aerosur.
I guess that Air Comet flies Santa Cruz - MAD , codeshare with Aerosur.

AeroSur flies to MAD twice a week in codeshare with Air Comet. Actually Air Comet operate the MAD-VVI route using an Airbus A330-200.

The Boeing 757-200 flies for AeroSur on the VVI-MIA route and sometimes on VVI-GRU route.

Yes, you're right. Air Comet operates this route three times a week on behalf Aerosur with 330 equipment.

Quoting UPPERDECKFAN (Reply 3):

Before the announcement by Spanish Authorities to impose the visa for Bolivian passengers, there were two daily flights from VVI to MAD operated by LAB (763 and L10) and Aerosur (742 and 313 from Air Comet).

Now, anfd after the demise of Air Madrid, who announced daily flights from MAD to VVI, there are only the three flights a week operated by 5L.

Thanks for your answers,

Gerard

Are their B727 still flying?
5L utilized these aircrafts in some local routes linking LPB, VVI, CBB, SRE and any others.

Actually, there weren't two daily flights between VVI and MAD. LAB only flew to MAD 3 to 4 times a week while Aerosur flew 3 times a week at first but incremented it to 5 times a week and possibly more before the visa restriction.

On another note, anybody knows if IB will start flying to Bolivia anytime soon? Also, do most of the passengers in Bolivia actually originate from VVI? I would think LPB would have a lot of passengers also (if nothing else, political traffic, being the capital).

I wouldn't be surprised to see Aerosur get the 743 or even pick up a used 744 when one comes available. They could easily make profits on the MAD run 3x a week and deploying it to GRU on the days freeing up the 727's and 757 to do other flights.

In Latin America, IB utilizes A346 for the long haul MAD-SJO and vice versa.
Due to altitude restrictions in LPB this aircraft is not able to operate LPB-MAD when completely loaded.
I think AA operates a triangular MIA-LPB-VVI-MIA for such restrictions.

Right now IB uses the A343 for MAD-SJO. The A346 was once used when the route was coupled with PTY but ever since the tag-on to PTY was dropped, IB has been using an A343.

Was announced, before the demise of Air Madrid, that this airline was to operate sheduled flights to both VVI and LPB with 330/340 equipment but any announcement from Spanish flag carrier.

L10 aircraft was leased from Globe Jet Airlines.
Since LB suspended operations temporally in early 2007, 5L was the only Bolivian air carrier flying between Bolivia and MAD considering the code share agreement with A7 as posted out before.
In the same way 5L is flying to some destinations in South America that had been served before by LB.
The own air fleet belonging to 5L looks old regarding their B727 and B737 equipments.

Flights to VVI-MAD could be feeding with passengers coming mainly from LPB and CBB. How does 5L coordinate this market?

I am unsure... According iberia.com SJO-MAD is currently served with "A340." It should mean either A343 or A346.

The A343 is a configuration of the A340 which carries 260 passengeres. The A346, which carries 350 passengers, is a much bigger plane and is not the one currently flown to SJO by IB.

According to an article in yesterday's El Deber newspaper, AeroSur just introduced a much improved website which went live yesterday.

New AeroSur webpage: http://www.aerosur.com/

Actually, ALL flights to SJO were served DAILY by an A346 for a long period of time until the 1st of June. May I remind you that during the A346 period, all flights, both the PTY, the GUA and the non-stop were served by A346.

What is currently happening now is that they sliced those stops and gave SJO a dedicated daily A343 non-stop from MAD. GUA and PTY are still served, but not daily, and it routes MAD-GUA-PTY-SJO and is scheduled to serve with the A346 though I've seen the A343 operate the route serveral times.

Also, since the 1st of June when we were changed to daily A343, the A346 has come at least 3-4 times instead of the A343, sometinh very common for IB on all its long-haul destinations.

Tomas.
