Latam launches direct flights from Cusco to Iquitos
Staring in July 2018 Latam will open their new direct flights 3 times a week from Cusco to Iquitos between July and November. This is a seasonal test route to see if it can be expanded in the future. The flight takes 2 hours and 21 mins and will allow clients to see the Amazon region and its lodges and River Boats without overnighting in Lima.
The manager of Corporate Affairs of Latam Airlines Peru, Antonio Olórtegui, explained in statements published by the official agency Andina that the route will work stationary, from July to November. It will be the second route of Latam in Peru without having Lima as its origin or destination, having started direct flights this year between the northern city of Trujillo and Cuzco, also in operation from July to November.
“We will continue to improve the national and international air connections of Peru, because we want passengers to reach more destinations, “said Olórtegui. Until now, to travel between cities Cuzco and Iquitos you have to take two flights and make a stop at the Jorge Chávez airport in Lima.
