In May the DGAC, once again, suspended the operation of the company, forcing Nature Air, an airline dedicated to domestic service, temporarily out of business.

The airline was never able to recover.

The fallen in the crash were: Bruce Michael Steinberg, Matthew Benjamin Steinberg, William Aaron Steinberg, Zachary Justin Steinberg, Irene Steinberg, Ari Moses Weiss, Hannah Mae Weiss, Leslie Levin Weiss, Mitchell Weiss, Amanda Rae Geissler, Juan Manuel Retana Chinchilla ( pilot), Emma Ramos Calderón (co-pilot).

In principle, authorities pointed to 3 hypotheses for the crash: the influence of strong winds, a human failure or a mechanical issue.
