Civil Aviation authorities suspend Nature Air operations

January 15, 2018

The Civil Aviation Authority has suspended the operations of Nature Air, the airline that owns the plane that crashed in Guanacaste on Dec. 31, Channel 7 News (Teletica) reported Jan. 12.

Twelve people died in the crash, which made international headlines.

According to Channel 7,  Civil Aviation recommended the suspension because of the resignation of a Nature Air official, the death of the crew members in the New Year’s Eve accident, and the medical leave of the airline’s chief of security, all resulting in insufficient personnel for continued service.

 

Nature Air confirmed the suspension in a news release and indicated the company is working to reestablish its services.
