This was revealed by SKY Airline, which specified that it plans to transport more than 5,400 passengers to Cusco and 3,400 people to Arequipa this long weekend.
After highlighting that the declaration of November 2 as a non-working day will contribute to boosting tourism nationwide, the aforementioned airline stated that it plans to transport over 20,000 passengers from October 29 to November 2.
“This provision will be beneficial for travelers, since many of them will be encouraged to make their travel plans a reality, and others will extend their stays in different regions of the country,” SKY Business Manager Franco Chaparro said.
“Our most demanded destinations for these dates are Cusco and Arequipa, where we will bring approximately 5,400 and 3,400 passengers during these dates,” he noted.
The company indicated that the demand has been increasing over recent months. Therefore, many of the businesses —which make up the tourism chain— have been seeking to recover their full capacity to receive tourists.
“In the case of the aeronautical sector, the capacity of domestic air transportation is currently around 70%, with respect to the pre-COVID situation (…),” he said.
Lastly, Chaparro added that —in view of the aforementioned increase in demand and if the easing of restrictions on passenger air transportation is confirmed— SKY will intend to provide its flights with more frequencies to its 12 national destinations: Arequipa, Ayacucho, Cusco, Iquitos, Juliaca, Lima, Piura, Pucallpa, Puerto Maldonado, Tarapoto, Trujillo, and Tumbes.
