Located 7 miles (11km) from Lima’s city center, Jorge Chavez International is Peru’s main international and domestic air hub. In 2010 it handled just over 10 million passengers. Flights to Jorge Chavez International Airport arrive from cities across North and South America, Canada and Europe.
Recent expansions and renovations of the main terminal building have improved standards throughout all operations. Facilities are clean and modern and staff are friendly and organized. Having received an award for being the “Best Airport in South America” in 2011 at the World Airport Awards, Jorge Chavez International is also home to the Sumaq VIP lounge which was labeled “Lounge of the Year” two years in a row.
A mere 15-minute journey to the historic city center of Lima makes Jorge Chavez a popular gateway for tourists wishing to explore the wonders of the country’s capital and beyond, while good shopping options ensure that they don’t leave empty-handed.
