June 2013: Aeropostal - Alas de Venezuela (LAV) along with Aserca Airlines (SEZ), Avior Airlines (VIO), Estelar Latinoamerica (RSV), Laser Airlines (LSR), and Conviasa (VCV) have all announced plans to replace their aging DC-9s, 737-200s and 727s in line with a (NOTAM) issued by Venezuela’s National Institute of Civil Aviation (Instituto Nacional de Aeronáutica Civil - INAC) that will prohibit operations of those airplane types in the country from November 1, 2013.
