Up to seven new airlines could enter the country once the construction of the second runway of the Jorge Chávez International Airport is completed, said the president of the National Chamber of Tourism (Canatur), Carlos Canales.
Some of the airlines that could establish in Peru are Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines, Polaris (Mexico), Swiss Air (low cost).
In addition, new flights with Lufthansa (Germany), Alitalia (Italy) and British Airways are expected to be available.
“In this regard, Canales said that ‘the existing schedule for airlines that come from Europe at the Jorge Chavez airport is saturated, which makes it impossible for more airlines to arrive’”, you can read in La República.
On the other hand, Canales indicated that along with the airlines there would also be hotel chains interested in coming to Peru.
