Puertorriqueña de Aviación, previously known as Aerovías Nacionales de Puerto Rico (alternatively known as ANPRI) was an airline company that operated during the 1930s. It was the first documented attempt by Puerto Ricans to have a flag carrier in the country. While the exact reason that Aerovías Nacionales de Puerto Rico closed operations remains unknown, it is rumored that the Basso brothers, inspired by the success that Mexicana and Cubana de Aviación were experiencing elsewhere in Latin America, tried to change the airline's name to Puertorriqueña de Aviación, with the United States government ruling against the name change because of their understanding that since Puerto Rico is a territory, it shouldn't have an airline that could be perceived as a flag carrier. Those rumors also suggest that the Basso brothers took their case to court, where they would have experienced an adverse decision and lost all of their money trying to win the case.
