La Paz Airport Closure/Maintenance.

Hi,

I am travelling through Peru/Bolivia in May/June this year. I have just been notified by the tour company I am travelling with that the airport at La Paz will be closed for maintenance during that time. Details are;

We have just received notification that Airport El Alto, La Paz (LPB), Bolivia will be closed for maintenance from May 01 to June 30 between the hours of 12:00 pm (noon) to 6:00 pm (18:00)

I have already booked flights out of La Paz, within this time frame. However, I can not find any more information on this maintenance! The airline (LAN) don't know what I'm talking about, and I can't find anything on the web either.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Know more? Something!!??

Thanks :)

Pretty much identical situation to myself. My tour company emailed me the exact same thing, and I cant find any info ANYWHERE to confirm this, both cheaptickets.com & LAN are baffled as to how they know nothing about it. if anyone has any info on this, it'd be greatly appreciated :)

suss out that link . the way i read it (assuming google translate hasn't failed me), only certain flights are affected, not all flights between 12-6pm.

We just received an email from Amaszonas notifying us that both of our flight times next week were changed (from reasonable 8 and 8:30 am to 6 and 6:45 am). I would double check your flight times before you arrive at the airport.

I despise! airline operations will be changed because the airport will be closed from 12 pm to 4 pm, I am really sorry but information at the airport administration is not the best. So it is very important to reconfirm your flight schedules!
