Airports in Peru...
Top landing strips in the country

 

Peru is not a country easily explored overland that's why airports in Peru comes to the rescue to help you organize your Peru holidays.

Moving away from the coast - where the majority of the population lives - the geography of Peru is predominantly marked by the rugged terrain of the Andes and the vastness of its impenetrable jungle.

Distances also play a very important role as many tourist attractions in Peru are simply too far apart or plainly impossible to be reached overland (i.e. Iquitos).
The bus journey Lima-Cuzco for instance -1 200km / 730 miles - will take you twenty hours to complete but only one hour if you travel by air.

In this context the following list of airports in Peru will help you plan your Peru vacations in a time-efficient manner.
