A Peruvian Airlines Boeing 737-200, registration OB-1841-P performing flight P9-221 from Cuzco to Lima (Peru), was climbing through about 12,500 feet out of Cuzco about 10 minutes into the flight when the passenger oxygen masks were released. The crew decided to return to Cuzco where the aircraft landed safely.

The airline reported the aircraft was climbing through 12,500 feet when the crew began configuring the aircraft's pneumatic panel according to high altitude airport procedures. The left air conditioning system lost pressure causing the depressurization of the cabin and automatic release of oxygen masks. The aircraft returned to Cuzco for a safe landing, the passengers were taken to hotels and reached Lima the following day on another company flight.

Passengers reported the oxygen masks came down about 10 minutes into the flight but did not supply oxygen. The aircraft returned to Cuzco for an emergency landing, they were taken to hotels but were left without any information.
