Through Ministerial Resolution No. 174-2021-MTC / 01, the Peruvian government once again extended the ban on regular passenger flights to and from destinations with a flight time greater than eight hours and from Brazil until at least March 14 , a measure that was implemented in December when new strains of COVID-19 were infected.
The Peruvian government was gradually releasing restrictions for international flights starting in October, and based on flight time, the latter without any other precedent in the region, where operations from specific countries or regions have been directly prohibited or enabled.
As of October, the offer of seats and international flights in Peru began the road to recovery, but after the January peak, the values have returned to a third of what they were until a year ago, before the outbreak of the pandemic.
The Jorge Chávez airport in Lima will then have an average of 354 international passenger flights per week during March, with an offer close to 70 thousand seats, according to data obtained by Aviacionline through Cirium, a global aeronautical intelligence company.
Only two other airports will have international flights: Arequipa, receiving a weekly JetSMART flight from Santiago de Chile; and Trujillo, with three weekly flights also from Indigo Partners low-cost.
This is the complete list of scheduled international passenger flights that the airlines have scheduled for March in Peru. Given the dynamics of the pandemic, some operations may be canceled.
Frequencies may vary according to demand in certain weeks.
