International airline group aims high
LANPERU is a subsidiary of LanChile, member of the ONE WORLD ALLIANCE. LanPeru connects Peru with the world’s most important cities.
obvious reasons, getting tourists into Peru is one of the fundamental priorities
of the current administrations plans to make the tourism sector a steady
source of foreign earnings and jobs. Special importance has been placed on the
newcomer LanPeru airlines, a subsidiary of LanChile that has been operating
since 1999 with a handful of domestic flights, direct international routes to
Miami and service sharing agreements with LanChile for flights to Los Angeles
and New York. The Lan group, however, has been operating in Peru for 73 years
with annual sales topping $400 million.
Currently we have around 600 direct employees and are expanding our fleet and number of routes, which has allowed us to increase passenger traffic by 120,000, or 40% more than the previous year, says Sergio Purcell Robinson, CEO of LanPeru.
Internationally, Mr. Purcell says LanPeru is working on building up a South American regional hub that will eventually serve the United States. We are already flying to Miami, Los Angeles and New York. Now we are developing routes into the Caribbean region. In fact, we have opened offices in Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador and Europe.
The Lan group has been operating in Peru for 73 years and has annual sales of $400 million
adds that special attention is being placed on Argentina, which is a natural
market for Peru and one of the countries with the largest number of potential
tourists for Peru. Right now, there are only two flights a day between
Lima and Buenos Aires, while there are 16 a day between Santiago and Buenos
Aires. The difference
is abysmal and so the tourist potential is huge.
