Peru Suspends operations of its National Airline


Peruvian authorities have suspended operations of the state-owned airline, TANS Peru, after “a series of serious events that have put safety in danger,” an official said Saturday.

Roberto Rodriguez, director of the country´s civil aviation office, told Radioprogramas radio that his agency on Monday would begin an investigation of the airline´s operations to determine if it should be allowed to fly again.

On August 23, a TANS flight crashed in the jungle city of Pucallpa, 305 miles northeast of the capital, Lima. That was followed by an incident a month and a half ago when a TANS plane had an emergency in Cuzco. It lost an engine.

TANS flies to nine Peruvian cities from Lima, including the major jungle city of Iquitos and the southern Andean city of Juliaca, near the famed Lake Titicaca.
