Which airport do I need to fly into?
Your Peruvian adventure will begin in the enchanting city of Lima, Peru’s capital. We, therefore, recommend that you fly into Jorge Chávez International Lima Airport (LIM).
Which airport do I need to depart from?
Once you’ve conquered the gloriously colourful peaks of Peru, your trip will finish up in Cusco. The closest airport is Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (CUZ) so we recommend that you fly out from here.
By what time should my flight arrive?
Your welcome meeting will start at 5 pm at the first hotel, so we recommend getting into Jorge Chávez International Lima Airport before 3.30 pm. If you would like to have a shower and get refreshed before the welcome meeting, it would be a good idea to leave additional time. At the meeting, you’ll be able to raise a toast to your upcoming adventures with your fellow Flashpackers.
What time should my flight depart on the last day?
After breakfast on the final day, you’re free to make your own arrangements. Most international flights leave Lima in the afternoon, so if you’re planning on flying from Cusco to Lima on your departing journey, we recommend making this journey in the morning to give yourself plenty of time before your international flight.
Is the luggage allowance the same for the internal flights as international carriers?
For the domestic flights in Peru, your baggage allowance will be a checked-in bag of 23KG and a hand luggage allowance of 6KG.
What happens if my flight is delayed?
Unfortunately, delays happen - that’s part of travelling. If your flight schedule changes, simply keep us updated by contacting the emergency number that you will be provided with prior to your departure.

How long is each of the internal flights?
The flight from Lima to Cusco takes about an hour and 15 minutes and the flight from Cusco to Puerto Maldonado is roughly 30 minutes.
