Línea Aérea Amaszonas S.A., usually shortened to Amaszonas,[note 1] is an airline from Bolivia, headquartered in La Paz. It operates scheduled and chartered short-haul passenger flights throughout the northern and northeastern regions of the country as well as to neighboring Peru, with its network's hub being located at El Alto International Airport.
On 10 July 2001 at 16:47 local time, the two pilots of an Amaszonas Cessna 208 Caravan (registered CP-2395) carrying eleven passengers had to execute an emergency landing on a hill near Viacha, six minutes into a flight from La Paz to Rurrenabaque, due to an engine problem. When hitting the ground, the aircraft turned over and was destroyed, but all persons on board survived.
On 25 January 2005 at around 10:00 local time, another Amaszonas Caravan (registered CP-2412) crash-landed, this time near Colquiri. The aircraft with two pilots and ten passengers on board had been on a chartered flight from La Paz to Sucre, when it encountered atmospheric icing conditions, thus being unable to maintain height. There were no fatalities, but as a consequence, Amaszonas was stripped of the allowance to operate Caravans on passenger flights.
On 27 February 2011 at 15:10 local time, an Amaszonas Fairchild Metro 23 (registered CP-2473)  was substantially damaged when the left landing gear collapsed upon landing at El Alto International Airport. The aircraft carrying six passengers and two crew members had been on a scheduled flight from San Borja to Rurrenabaque when problems with the undercarriage occurred, leading the pilots to divert to La Paz. All persons onboard survived the ensuing crash landing.
^The name "Amaszonas" is a pun on the Spanish term "A más zonas", which means "to more zones". The pronunciation is nearly identical to "Amazonas", Spanish for the Amazon River, whose drainage basin covers northeastern Bolivia.
