Exclamation Peruvian Airlines suspends operations until further notice

Peruvian Airlines has suspended today all flights and closed offices until further notice due to a “lack of liquidity”, it says in a statement on its website on 4 October. The move comes after government authorities impounded the airline’s bank accounts earlier in the week. The airline says in its statement, translated from Spanish, that this action caused a liquidity shortage that affected all operations. It probably could not recover from the situation and was forced to suspend all flights until further notice.

In July they announced that they would start flying to Santiago in 2 months. In September when the authorities took that measure, the airline clarified that it does not maintain debts ‘beyond the normal ones of its activity’ and regretted the decision of the court, which generated an affectation to hundreds of passengers throughout the country.

That’s unfortunate. I have flown them several times and have always had good service. I hope they recover financially and resume flying soon.
