Lineas Aéreas Nacionales S.A. (LANSA) was a Peruvian commercial airline headquartered in Lima, which was established in 1963. After its last Lockheed Electra crashed on Christmas Eve 1971, LANSA ceased operation, and lost its operating authority on January 4, 1972, when its working capital was exhausted.[2]


Over the years, LANSA operated 17 aircraft. All were Lockheed Aircraft models except for four NAMC YS-11 models.[3]
