Viva Air will receive 50 new aircrafts from Airbus, valued at $5 billion US dollars.
The low-cost airline Viva Air Peru will be able to fly to 21 countries in the Americas, after receiving authorization from the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MTC) to offer non-regular international air transport service of passengers, cargo, and mail.
El Colombiano said last Saturday that the destinations the airline could arrive to are: Costa Rica, Cuba, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Haiti, Panama, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay, Venezuela, Guyana and Suriname.
Viva Air Peru already has permission to make regular flights to Colombia, Bolivia, Argentina, Ecuador, Venezuela and Panama.
“The company announced that its first international route will be to Colombia and that it will start selling those tickets from next July, while for the other routes there is still no scheduled date”, wrote El Colombiano.
This airline currently offers trips to the Peruvian cities of Arequipa, Cusco, Iquitos, Piura and Tarapoto, as well as a connecting service between Peru and Colombia. They also said that they will receive a total of 50 new aircrafts from Airbus, for a value of $5 billion US dollars, to operate the new routes.
