Peruvian Airlines grounded for safety reasons

The Peruvian Ministry of Transport and Communications decided to temporarily suspend the operations of the Peruvian  Airlines as of August 18, 2011 for safety reasons.

The suspension comes after an audit by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC) of Peru in April 2011. This audit revealed several safety shortcomings and resulted in an ten corrective actions that needed to be accomplished by the airline.

Also, one of the aircraft was grounded. Boeing 737-2T2 registration OB-1823-P was grounded because of insufficient maintenance.

A new inspection by DGAC in August, 2011 again revealed a deterioration in the airlines level of safety. Consequently, the AOC was suspended for 90 days.
