Aerocon is a respectable small regional airline, offering services to remote areas in Bolivia.
As difficult the situation is for the relatives of the fatally injured and also injured pax, it´s important to first understand the reason for the accident.
Aerocon´s press releases are carefully limited to see the evaluation of the black box, and I think it´s a reasonable answer to the difficult situation of all involved. Why point out to possible reasons when the real reason can be seen in a few days from the black boxes, which I understand are in Brazil for evaluation?
Worst problem of all from my point of view is that the Riberalta Airport - the second largest in the Beni department - with around 700 movements x month, has absolutely no firemen, less firetruck nor any type of preparation for any type of accident. As per press comments in Bolivia, the forseen rescue equipment for Riberalta has been diverted to Uyuni, in sights of the upcoming Dakar race that will go via Uyuni.
I was at Uyuni the weekend of the Aerocon accident (and incidentally flying a Metroliner of Amaszonas that moment too) - and was surprised that Uyuni had one very modern, and one a little older but well kept firetruck. Was sad to see in the evening news, that they were needed at another airport.
Witnesses of the accident (inclusive survivors) indicated that had Riberalta have a proper firebrigade, maybe most of the pax would have survived. Indications show, they were alive after the crash, but could not exit the aircraft, not even many minutes after the accident. Nobody could help them out, and the tragic end came to many.
Flying in Bolivia overall is safe, specially if you consider the rough terrain and sometimes adverse weather conditions. Roadaccidents per year - due to terrible roads - are much higher than airtraffic fatalities. Flying is the safest way to get around the country. It´s simply terrible bad luck that Aerocon has had two accidents with fatalities and one close call in such a short time.
