Passengers on flights between Huaraz and Lima have increased about 30%

T he editor of The Huaraz Telegraph went to the Airport Comandante FAP Germán Arias Graziani last Saturday to see if airline LC Perú would be packed with tourists or not. Additionally, we spoke with a couple of tourists and with Carlos Maguiña, traffic agent of LC Perú at Anta Airport.

Mr. Maguiña Ramirez informed us that that LC Perú´s jets have a capacity of 37 passengers and that sales have increased about 30% the past weeks. However, the jets aren’t by far full and only have an average of 23 or 25 passengers every trip these days. LC Perú is the only airline operating between Lima and Huaraz and fly only on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Maguiña Ramirez stated that the fare of a one-way trip varies between 34 and 155 USD depending on the moment of booking it. He also said that 80% of the seats for July and August are already sold but that it’s unlikely that there will be more flights during the high season.

Saturday´s incoming flight had a couple of foreigners on board but only a few were actually tourists. Most foreigners we interviewed stated to live in Huaraz or to work here and that normally they would have booked a bus trip. Due to the mudslides and huaicos in the Ancash area, most passengers aboard chose to fly only this once. Tourists Ben and Roxanne from Canada stated that they choose to fly to Huaraz but that they had booked their flight way in advance. At the moment, there are hardly any tourists in the city and tourism operators have expressed to be worried.

    It’s weird, because I try to book a flight to Huaraz, but I can’t find any flight between the 5th and the 11th april. I guess they are all full.
    We are tourists and arrive at Lima on the 5th april. We first booked a night bus to Huaraz, but obviously we wanted to change and take a flight but we can’t find any, not until the 11th (which will be too late for us).
    Do you have advice on the best way to get to Huaraz around the 5th april ? (and coming back around the 11th) ?

    Thank you,
