Bolivian authorities have suspended the license of charter airline Lamia Bolivia whose plane crashed in Columbia killing 75 people, including players from Brazil’s Chapecoence Football club.
Management of Bolivian aviation authority was also replaced to ensure a transparent probe, The Guardian reported.
Primary investigation revealed that the fuel reserves were low.
According to International flight regulations, aircrafts need to have carry reserve fuel enough to fly for 30 minutes after reaching the destination.
A recording obtained by Bolivian media reported that Bolivian pilot Miguel Quiroga informed the control tower at Medellin’s airport that the plane was “in total failure, total electrical failure, without fuel”.
Medellin air traffic controllers have reportedly asked the LaMia pilot to wait while another flight made an emergency landing.
The aircraft’s black box will be sent to UK for further investigations.
