World Travel Council: Peru Needs To Invest In Airport Infrastructure


Gloria Guevara Manzo, CEO and president of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), recommended Peru to prioritize investment in airport infrastructure.

According to Guevara, the Jorge Chávez airport in Lima is “almost collapsed” and needs improvements to achieve a greater tourist influx, informed La República.

The WTTC chief also said that the investment in infrastructure and technology marks the differential advantage other countries have. “Those airports that are not ready will be left behind”, according to her.

Investments in tourism infrastructure allow countries to be more connected with each other and have a greater potential to grow in this sector.

“According to statistics from the WTTC for 2017, the travel and tourism sector mobilized $20 billion US dollars, an approximate of 9.8% of Peru’s Gross Domestic Product”, La República explained.
