Bolivia's state owned airline Boliviana de Aviacion (BoA) has launched its second international route to Sao Paulo's Guarulhos International airport.

BoA is operating the route three times per week from its hub in Cochabamba with Boeing 737-500s. The new flights will connect with BoA's services in La Paz.

On 10 December, BoA will also start direct flights from Santa Cruz de la Sierra in the country's Eastern lowlands to Guarulhos.

The Brazilian city is BoA's second destination after it started flights to Buenos Aires (Ezeiza) earlier this year. The airline said previously that it plans to open Lima in Peru as its third international destination.

BoA is in stiff competition with Santa Cruz-based private airline Aerosur, which has repeatedly accused the state airline of offering subsidized fares.
