Flying to Peru just got easier
New services give travelers more options, including flying direct from London to Lima, and connecting flights to Cusco and Chiclayo.
The excuses for not visiting Peru are running out!
Visiting Peru has this year just gotten that little bit easier thanks to a raft of new flights to the Andean nation that is one of Latin America’s top tourism destinations.
In May, British Airways launched its new London-Lima direct flight — the first one since the 1980s. The flights run three times a week during the high season and twice a week during the low season. For the first month of the new service, passengers were treated to a special inflight Peruvian-inspired menu by Martin Morales, a Peruvian restaurateur based in London. Flying from the UK to Peru is now easier and quicker than ever, with passengers no longer needing to waste time by changing planes in airports from Bogota to Amsterdam.
Meanwhile, Avianca have launched a direct flight from Bogota to the old Inca imperial capital of Cusco, now the focus of Peru’s travel industry. Travelers from the United States and London can thus change flights in the Colombian capital, rather than Lima, if they prefer. And, of course, Colombian travelers can fly straight to the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
Separately, Copa Airlines has launched a new twice-weekly service from Panama to the northern coastal city of Chiclayo. Chiclayo is the gateway to many new pre-Inca archaeological wonders that have recently been discovered along Peru’s northern coast, as well as the “pyramids” of the Sun and the Moon of the Moche people, Chanchan, the world’s largest intact adobe city and, of course, northern Peru’s numerous world-class surf breaks, including some of the longest waves in the world.
As if that wasn’t enough, construction is due to begin shortly on a new, larger international airport for Cusco, which will receive international flights including from the largest commercial passenger jets.
