"According to the newspaper, the airline bank accounts have been frozen by the Ministry of Economy and Finance. Further, the Dirección General de Aeronáutica Civil (DGAC) has not granted authority to operate starting on January 1, 2018."


Isn't TAM Bolivia a division of the Bolivian military service.
Also they are one of the last 727-200 operators around.
TAM Bolivia is also having problems paying for 2 MA-60s in the fleet, and all remaining orders have been canceled.

They do have a single 727 iirc. Unfortunately, I imagine either someone like Amaszonas will come into Bolivia or BoA will get a few additional frames to cover.

Actually Amaszonas is Bolivian :D

so yes, I can imagine them and/or Boliviana growing to fill the void that could be left by TAM

Isn't there also the issue that TAM Bolivia has to free itself of military control, since standards for civilian airlines are different? TAME in Ecuador for a long time used to be an arm of the Ecuador military, although it's operated by civilians now.
