New measures will shorten lines, increase efficiency at Peru’s largest airport

(LIP-jl) — Peruvian President Alan Garcia announced this morning that a series of new measures will help minimize lines as well as increase efficiency and passenger flow at Peru’s largest airport -Lima’s Jorge Chavez International Airport.

Generally, Jorge Chavez International Airport is the first impression that foreigners have of Peru. Between the hours of 9pm and 1am (peak arrival times), thousands of Peruvian and foreign travelers deal with endless lines which cause headaches, loss of time, and an overall bad image of the country.

With that in mind, Garcia declared the new measures are being implemented to promote a better image of the Andean nation.

"I can gladly report to you that measures which are designed to minimize lines and accelerate passenger flow have been implemented at Jorge Chavez. The new measures will make passenger experience more fluid-like, without compromising safety and security monitoring activities," said Garcia.

Peru’s Interior Ministry has tightened up its operations at the airport, which provide police, statistic, and judicial solutions to the current problems experienced by travelers.

"This is a great news for hundreds of thousands of travelers who arrive in our country annually," Garcia added.
