There are 234 airports in Peru, but only 24 of those (at most) have regular scheduled flights by Peru’s main domestic airlines. The rest are small airports without scheduled flights, and are not included on the map above.
With the exception of Lima Airport, which is run by Lima Airport Partners, the rest of Peru’s main airports are managed by Corporación Peruana de Aeropuertos y Aviación Comercial (CORPAC), Aeropuertos Andinos or Aeropuertos del Perú, the latter operating primarily in the northern half of Peru.
A to Z of Major Airports in Peru
Quite a few airports in Peru have the words “International Airport” in their official title, but in most cases this is misleading. At time of writing, only two Peruvian airports actually have regular scheduled international flights (Cusco and Lima).
- Andahuaylas: Andahuaylas Airport (ANS) — Andahuaylas Airport is located about nine miles (15 km) from the center of Andahuaylas, one of the two main cities in the Apurímac region of Peru. Peruvian airline LC Perú has flights between Lima and Andahuaylas.
- Anta: Comandante FAP Germán Arias Graziani Airport (ATA) — This small airport serves the city of Huaraz in the Ancash region of Peru. The airport itself is located in the village of Anta, about 14 miles (23 km) to the north of Huaraz. LC Perú flies between Anta and Lima.
- Arequipa: Rodríguez Ballón International Airport (AQP) — Rodríguez Ballón International Airport serves the city of Arequipa, the second largest city in Peru. It is the second busiest airport in southern Peru after Cusco’s Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport. Peru’s main airlines all have regular flights between Arequipa and Lima. There are also regular scheduled flights between Arequipa and Cusco, Tacna and Juliaca.
- Ayacucho: Coronel FAP Alfredo Mendívil Duarte Airport (AYP) — Located two miles (3.4 km) from the center of Ayacucho in the south-central Andes. LC Perú has daily flights between Ayacucho and Lima.
- Cajamarca: Mayor General FAP Armando Revoredo Iglesias Airport (CJA) — Cajamarca’s airport is located about two and a half miles (4 km) from the city center. LATAM (LAN) and LC Perú have daily flights to Lima.
- Chachapoyas: Aeropuerto de Chachapoyas (CHH) — Chachapoyas started receiving flights from Tarapoto in 2016, thanks to a subsidized initiative by the Peruvian government and the small SAETA airline. The tickets are cheap for Peruvians and other legal residents of Peru, at just S/ 60. Foreign tourists have to pay S/ 220. ATSA Airlines now also flies direct from Lima to Chachapoyas, with one-way tickets for around $65. (Read my Chachapoyas Travel Guide here).
- Chiclayo: Capitán FAP José A. Quiñones Gonzáles International Airport (CIX) — Located just outside the city of Chiclayo. LATAM and LC Perú have regular flights between Chiclayo and Lima, with some connections in Trujillo.
- Cusco: Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (CUZ) — Cusco’s airport is the second busiest airport in Peru after Lima’s Jorge Chávez International Airport. Due to the airport’s close proximity to the city and its difficult geographical location, a new airport — both controversial and continually delayed — will be operational in the future. As well as regular domestic flights to Lima, Puerto Maldonado, Juliaca and Arequipa, Cusco’s airport also has international flights to La Paz, Bolivia (with Peruvian Airlines and Bolivian airline Amaszonas) and Bogota, Colombia (with Avianca).

- Iquitos: Coronel FAP Francisco Secada Vignetta International Airport (IQT) — Iquitos is the largest city in the world not accessible by road, making the city’s airport a particularly vital connection between it and the rest of Peru (along with river transportation).

- Jaén: Aeropuerto de Jaén (JAE) — LATAM has daily flights between Lima and the small city of Jaén in Northern Peru.

- Juliaca: Inca Manco Cápac International Airport (JUL) — Located about 3 miles (5 km) from the city of Juliaca, Inca Manco Cápac International Airport also serves the city of Puno (which has no airport of its own) further south on the banks of Lake Titicaca and about one hour from Juliaca by bus. LATAM and Avianca fly between Lima and Juliaca; some flights go via Arequipa or Cusco.
