Lima to Cusco flights take off from Jorge Chavez International Airport. The airport is named after Jorge Chavez, an important Peruvian aviator. This airport was previously known as Lima-Callao International Airport and was renamed after Jorge Chavez in 1965. The airport is well-equipped with a hotel, a shopping center, food court and many corporate offices.

Getting to Lima airport

Your Lima to Cusco flight will take off from Jorge Chavez International Airport, which is 11 kilometers from the city center. If you are around Miraflores, the airport is around 17 kilometers away. The easiest and safest way to get to the airport from Lima city center is by taking a taxi. Use taxis that are offered by registered companies, and try not to hail private taxis as they may not be very safe. There is no public transportation available to get to the airport and the only option is to choose a reputable taxi company, such as Taxi Green. The ride may cost anywhere between $25 and $35.

Getting to Cusco

Cusco is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the highest cities in the world, located at an altitude of 11,200 feet above sea level. Begin your journey at Saksaywaman, an ancient patch of ruins that was built by the Killke people. Head toward Machu Picchu, which is famous all over the world for its Incan ruins. Willkapampa near Cusco is another important tourist destination for those who are interested in Incan culture. Spend time at Barrio de San Blas, which is one of the prettiest neighborhoods in the city, with its steep roads and colonial buildings. It also houses bars, boutiques and cafes, which are usually buzzing with locals and tourists.

Arriving to the city centre

Flights from Lima to Cusco land at Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport, which is located very close to the city center. The easiest way to reach the various neighborhoods of Cusco from the airport is by taking one of the taxis outside the arrivals area. Make sure that your driver understands where you need to go, as they may only speak Spanish.
