Lloyd Aereo Boliviano first flew internationally in July of 1930, with planes used by Brazilian airline Syndicato Condor Ltda, between Corumba and Rio De Janeiro. Lloyd Aereo Boliviano used their own plane on the route from La Paz and Rio De Janeiro, and La Paz to Corumba. With this, Lloyd Aereo Boliviano and Condor Ltda. had a commercial agreement.
During 1932, Lloyd Aereo Boliviano had to lend its planes and personnel to the Bolivian government, to help during the so called Guerra Del Chaco, a war which became an important part of the country's history.
In 1950, the airline was awarded with the Condor de los Andes, given to Bolivian companies by the government.
In 1970, LLoyd Aereo Boliviano joined the jet age, acquiring their first Boeing 727. With jets, Lloyd Aereo Boliviano was allowed to fly to more markets in Central America, to the United States and to Spain.
But in 1994, Lloyd Aereo Boliviano ran into economic trouble, and the government had to start looking for potential buyers. Under those desperate measures, they had to look for international interests to step in, and on October 19 of 1995, VASP, a Brazilian airline, stepped up, buying 50 percent of the company, and signing an administrative contract.
Apart from their 727 equipment, the airline now also uses Boeing 737's.
