After receiving the Air Operator Certificate from the Ministry of Transport and Communications, Viva Air Peru is now allowed to sell tickets in Peru. Viva Air, the country's first low-cost airline, offers 11 routes of domestic flights within Peru for only S/. 60.
Initially, Viva Air's launching was going to be on March 20, however, it was delayed due to the floods and rains that hit most areas of Peru. Fortunately, now, Viva Peru's CEO, Jose Castellano, announced that flight operations will start on May 9 in Lima, Piura, Tarapoto, Trujillo, Arequipa, Iquitos and Chiclayo. The new low-cost carrier will use Airbus A320 planes with a capacity of 180 passengers.
Viva Air representatives are excited to begin their operation in Peru. Castellano says to Peru21, “we want people that want to travel more, to go to more places, to visit more relatives in different areas. We are looking for a passenger that is willing to pay less and travel more”.
