Flights to Bolivia

Bolivia would hardly be accessible to the outside if it weren't for the planes of Bolivia Airlines. Although an extensive network of trails crisscrosses the Andes Mountains, some parts of them are hardly wide enough for two camels. Fortunately, La Paz is a well-known city and many international and South American airlines make direct flights to Bolivia.

If you plan ahead you get a better rate, however, many good options, such as standby flights to Bolivia are available to you if you do decide to go at the last minute. You might struggle with trying to decide which of the buses are going to go faster on the roads of Bolivia, many of which can be subject to flooding, opt for just taking a flight to your next destination on one of the many small Bolivian Airlines.

As you explore the country, travel by air aboard one of the well-known Bolivian airlines. Many visitors opt for taking LAB Airlines (Lloyd Aero Boliviano) from destination to destination. Bolivia is number 7 on the list of countries with the most airports on the world, behind the United States (who comes in first, Brazil, Russia, Mexico, Canada, and Argentina. This is an amazing fact for such an undeveloped country, but it lends credibility to the idea that road travel is not always the best way to get around in Bolivia.

Cochabamba, La Paz, Santa Cruz, Sucre, Tarija, and Trinaded are airports that are serviced by LAB airlines. LAB also makes stops all over South America, to places like Cancun, Panama, Sao Paulo, Rio De Janiero, Beunos Aires, Caracas, Cordoba, Manaus, Lima, and Santiago. So whether you'd like to leave the hassles of road travel behind while you're in Bolivia or you're looking for flights to South America to see the whole continent, LAB is a great resource to help you. It is one of the most trusted and well-known Bolivian Airlines.

AeroSur fulfills a similar role, with service to many of the same stops in Bolivia as LAB, and in addition it travels to Uyuni, home of the Salt Flats and Puerto Suarez in the far southwestern corner. Aerosur also has combination packages, which include a tour, hotel and a round trip plane ticket to the best destinations in Bolivia. It has an airpass to Bolivia that can save you quite a great deal if you are planning to tour the entire country.

This pass includes flights to Bolivia, together with destinations such as La Paz. This pass allow you travel on any one of the eight airlines that collaborate in this program: Iberia, Aer Lingus, British Airways, Finnair, LAN, Cathay Pacific, American Airlines, and Qantas.
