Peru, a diverse and culturally rich country in South America, has a growing aviation market that plays a critical role in its economy, transportation infrastructure, and tourism industry. The aviation sector in Peru has experienced significant growth and transformation in recent years, with both major players and new entrants working to meet the increasing demand for air travel, improve infrastructure, and enhance connectivity.
Peru’s aviation market is dominated by a few major airlines, including the national flag carrier, LATAM Perú, which is part of the larger LATAM Airlines Group. Other significant players in the market include Viva Air Perú, a low-cost airline, and Sky Airline Perú, a subsidiary of the Chilean carrier Sky Airline. These airlines provide domestic and international services, catering to various travel needs and preferences.
Domestic air travel is essential in Peru due to the country’s vast and diverse territory, which includes the Andes mountains, the Amazon rainforest, and the coastal regions. The domestic market has been growing steadily, driven by increasing demand from both leisure and business travelers. Major domestic routes include Lima-Cusco, Lima-Arequipa, and Lima-Trujillo. Airlines have been expanding their networks, adding new routes and increasing frequencies on popular routes to cater to this demand.
Peru is well-connected to the rest of the world through a comprehensive network of international flights operated by both domestic and foreign carriers. The country’s main airport, Jorge Chávez International Airport, serves as a major hub for international travel, connecting passengers to destinations in North, Central, and South America, as well as Europe and Asia. Major international routes include Lima-Miami, Lima-Madrid, and Lima-Buenos Aires.
Peru has several airports, with the main international hub being Jorge Chávez International Airport in Lima. This airport has seen significant investments in recent years to modernize and expand its capacity to accommodate the growing demand for air travel. Other important airports in the country include Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport in Cusco, Rodríguez Ballón International Airport in Arequipa, and FAP Captain Carlos Martínez de Pinillos International Airport in Trujillo.
