I was there in Feb of 99. I flew AeroMexico from L.A. to Lima and Aeroperu and Mexicana on the way back.
Peru is a very beautifull country with great people.

Jorge Chavez needs a major overhaul. When I was there a new radar system had just been installed. However, the terminal was in very bad shape. I really don't want to speak bad about it here, but I just want to let you know that it's a terminal made in the 1960's for the jet age and never upgraded since then.

The International airlines didn't even have a big logo where the check in counters are located. Instead, they had a small plastic plate up on the wall with their small logo printed on it.

I really hope that the Peruvian aviation industry improves. It's quite disapointing to loose all the national airlines. Faucett, Aeroperu, Americana, T doble A, the list goes on and on. But airlines just can't seem to make a buck there. The problem I saw was that there was cut-throat competition especially with AeroContinente offering $25.00 dollar one way fares to any part of the country. By the way, that airline is owned by a drug loard.

AeroPeru's 757 and Faucett's 737 crashes were disastrous for those airlines. Just sad, because I fllew with Aeroperu about a month before they shut down.

I really hope that TACA Peru and LAN Peru make it. They seem to be very cautious. They only fly about 2 routes each in order to avoid AeroContinente's ridicule
fairs. Sooner or later AeroContinente is going to have an accident with those old 737-100's and 727-100s. But the gov. seems like they don't really care.
