On the same month, the Peruvian Ministry of Transportation and Communications ordered the grounding of Aero Cóndor fleet of Boeing 737 airliners due to safety concerns as these aircraft had been recently involved in several incidents. Nowadays, the company only serves scenic and charter flight.
The company is only active at the domain of scenic tourist flights and charter flights.
