Plus Ultra flight PU302 left Lima, Peru with some 5 hours delay due to technical issues. En route to Madrid the crew detected some issues with oil pressure and decided to divert to the city of Manaus, capital of the Amazonas state in Brazil after a diversion to Boa Vista Airport was not authorized. All customers and crew were accommodated on local hotels and Plus Ultra hired a Euroatlantic Airways Boeing 767 to take the customers home.
