Aero Condor Peru


Aero Condor, also known as Aero Condor Peru, is an airline based in Lima, the capital of Peru. It was founded and started operations in 1975, and provides domestic charter flights, cargo, scenic, and air ambulance services. Its main hub is Jorge Chavez International Airport in Lima.

History

Aero Condor operated an extensive domestic network of more than fifteen destinations until June 2008, when most scheduled services were suspended due to the high fuel prices. On the same month, the Peruvian Ministry of Transportation and Communications ordered the grounding of Aero Condor fleet of Boeing 737 airliners due to safety concerns as these aircraft had been recently involved in several incidents.David Kaminski-Morrow, "Peru's Aerocondor ordered to suspend 737-200 flights", Flight Global, June 12, 2008.
