LATAM Airlines Peru to offer non stop flights between Cusco and La Paz
LATAM Airlines Peru has announced that it will introduce five weekly non-stop flights between Cusco (Peru) and La Paz (Bolivia) starting 1 July 2019, subject to government approval.
The route will reduce travel times between the two cities by four hours and 15 minutes and will be operated by Airbus A319 aircraft with capacity for 144 passengers, offering 75,024 seats annually. Tickets are available from today via latam.com and other sales channels.
“As part of LATAM’s commitment to offering unrivalled connectivity in Latin America and supporting the development of sustainable tourism in the region, we will connect two of the leading tourist destinations in Peru and Bolivia. With flights to five continents and over 120 destinations in South America alone, LATAM offers unparalleled choice and flexibility, making it easier than ever to discover the numerous attractions of the region,” said Manuel van Oordt, CEO of LATAM Airlines Peru.
Located 3,399 m above sea level in the Peruvian Andes, Cusco is the former capital of the Incan empire and is renowned for both its Incan and Spanish colonial architecture, becoming a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. Its history, vibrant culinary scene and proximity to attractions such as the Sacred Valley of the Incas and the citadel of Machu Picchu draw visitors from around the world.
From Cusco, LATAM Airlines Peru operates non-stops flights to Juliaca, Arequipa, Puerto Maldonado and its international hubs in Lima (Peru) and Santiago (Chile), as well as seasonal services to Pisco, Iquitos y Trujillo, enabling passengers to travel directly between Peru’s principal tourist destinations and connect to the airline group’s international network.
La Paz, Bolivia
Located 68 km southeast of Lake Titicaca, La Paz sits in a bowl-like depression surrounded by the high mountains of the Bolivian Altiplano. At an elevation of 3,650 m above sea level, La Paz is the highest capital city in the world.
LATAM Airlines Group operates flights to La Paz from its hubs in Lima and Santiago, offering connections to destinations throughout its network.
LATAM’s international network
