Hi guys,

I just recently published another internal Peru flight, if you like, check it out here:

Amazon Adventure- Lima To Iquitos With LAN Perú (by Checo77 Mar 25 2012 in Trip Reports)

1.5 years back, I took the exact same Peruvian Airlines flight to Cusco and made a TR too, so those of you who did not read it back them can do it now here:

Rare TR: Peruvian Airlines 737-200Adv LIM-CUZ-LIM (by Checo77 Feb 9 2011 in Trip Reports)


Introduction:

As many of you already know, I am Czech but live in Lima for a year now. I really love it here. Its a wonderful city and country. Peru is the 6th country in Latin America I live in and by far its my favorite.
Since I really love helping and have been a volunteer many times before (plus it will help me in my Masters Degree thesis) I decided to go to Cusco for a week long volunteering at local rural schools far away from the city.
After checking fares on LAN, TACA, StarPeru and Peruvian, the cheepest option was LAN for about USD 125, Peruvian was around 150 dollars. However, I realized that I can use my credit card points to redeem national air tickets, so I contacted Scotibank where I keep my account and confirmed it. Soon, I was holding a ticket at hand which an employee from the bank brought me home with a smile. The bank also told me they will check me in online and email me the boarding pass, which indeed happened. What great service, not possible in Europe at all. Another reason why I love South America, everything is so personal.
Peruvian Airlines is a nice Peruvian owned airline operating a mix of 737-200Advs and 737-300s only on national routes. They serve Lima (duh!), Cusco, Piura, Tacna, Iquitos and Arequipa. Last year, the goverment shut them down for about two weeks because there were reported mechanical issues with the airplanes. The license was given back but only to planes that undertook heavy manteinance checks. That is why Peruvian reduced its number of flights and destionations, they dropped Ilo, Pisco, Trujillo as I remember (they might be more, not sure where exactly they flew before the closure). The CEO of Peruvian accused LAN lobby for the closure, which he never prooved though. But its true that LAN hated (and still hates) Peruvian from the day they started, because Peruvian never charged double to foreigners which quickly became popular and Peruvian was taking away pax from LAN, which they did not like.


Check-in:

My flight was leaving Lima 9:30am, so I arrived at the airport around 8am. Traffic was bulding up, but I still made it quickly from my home in Miraflores which is pretty at the other side of the city and the airport is.
As I was already checked-in by my bank, I just flashed my BP and the agent checked my bag in less than a minute and I was off to security in no time. Great that there were no lines, counters of LAN and Taca were full of people, so I was really happy to be flying Peruvian today.

Flight:

Equipment: Boeing 737-200Adv
Load Factor: 100%

Lima domestic terminal was pretty busy this morning, with lots of flights departing, especially to Cusco. I am always amazed how LAN does it: their planes depart one after another to Cusco, like a metro. Incredible. Plus, there was Taca to Cusco too, flights to Piura, Trujillo and Chiclayo as well.

The nice DASH belonging to LC Perú, another airline I MUST try:

This Taca Embraer 190 was getting ready to CUZ and left just a little before us:

StarPeru off to CUZ as well:

Boarding was called a little late, about 15min before scheduled departure. What I loved was that there was a gate change and we will board via bus, which is amazing!!!

I just LOVE these engines!!!!

The fuselage:

The lightning was very bad for taking pictures, plus the mass of pax boarding did not allow me to take any more, since they were constanstly moving and I if stoped, they would run me over. Sorry guys.

Smart looking, VERY confy leather seats:

Knee shot, very good pitch:

The seat was very very confortable. I would not mind at all flying like this trans-atlantic, not even trans-pacific. And I am fairly tall (compared to Peruvian people) with about 190cm, but still I did not felt cramped. Much better than my TAM Brazilian experience on the FRA-GRU flight on their 77W.
The crew was super nice and consisted of two female and two male flight attendants. Pretty nice! On the LAN flight I took to Iquitos a few days back, on an A319 there were only two FA´s. Not sure if LAN deploys more FA´s to CUZ, but definitely 4 FA´s for a 732 is a great number (seen from the pax point of view).

I love the fact that a lot of foreigners fly with Peruvian. I was seated next to a French guy, there were lots of Americans, even Japanese (or Chinese or Korean, not sure). But most of the pax were Peruvians.

The flight turned up to be completely full. The doors were closed at the time we were supposed to be taking off already, but I was not in a hurry so I didn´t mind. The capitain welcomed us on board and apologized for the delay, but no explanations as to why this happened was given.

The crew performed the safety demo in both Spanish and English, however, the English of the FA speaking was not very good, so I did not understood a thing. But I speak perfect Spanish, so no problem, plus I fly a lot so I know the procedure very well.

The 737-200Adv roared off LIM airport behind schedule. The take-off was amazing, the engines even though they are slim are very powerfull, plus they have this nice sound, which is very different from the newer engines.

Leaving the world´s second largest desertic city behind:

Nice views as we approach the Andes:

http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e223/checo77/Volunteering%20Cusco/DSC09518.jpg

Very soon after takeoff, the service starts. Since it´s only an hour long flight, the crew must be quick and efficient. And they were, but never forgetting to smile. Very nice!!

Snack boxes were distributed:

http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e223/checo77/Volunteering%20Cusco/DSC09530.jpg

It contained a fresh and nice cheese sandwich and a delicious piece of chocolate cake:
http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e223/checo77/Volunteering%20Cusco/DSC09532.jpg

http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e223/checo77/Volunteering%20Cusco/DSC09533.jpg

I was very very satisfied with the snack. The sandwich was fresh and the cake was spectacular (looks very indiferent, but trust me, it was heaven!). Much better than what LAN offered us on our flight to Iquitos.

For the rest of the flight, I listed to my ipod and enjoyed the amazing views of the Andes. It was cloudy, but from time to time one could spot a snow-capped mountain or a beautiful lagoon, but picture-taking was difficult, because the sun was very strong and the pictures came out very very white  

Soon, the boxes were collected and the plane started its descent. The capitain informed us of nice landing conditions and that we will be arriving soon and will have an airbridge available at CUZ.

The views were spectacular:
http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e223/checo77/Volunteering%20Cusco/DSC09542.jpg

I am not sure if you are familiar with the approach to CUZ, but the plane basically overflies the city and the airport before making a very tight bank to the left quickly descending around a mountain, alingning to the runway just a few minutes before touchdown. Its not the most dangerous, nor the most exciting approach on Earth, but at least in Latin America, I think it earns its spot in the TOP 10.

Welcome to Cusco:
http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e223/checo77/Volunteering%20Cusco/DSC09577.jpg

What stiked me odd was that seconds before touchdown, the capitain increased speed significantly, which I never felt so strong as that day. The engines roared and I though we are going around, but we landed smoothly. Is this a need when landing in high-altitude airports? Maybe somebody who knows more can tell me  

We made our way to the gate:

http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e223/checo77/Volunteering%20Cusco/DSC09582.jpg

I was determined I wanted to see the cockpit, so I waited until almost everybody was out and I asked the capitain who was standing at the door biding farewell to the pax if I can take a peek. He told me "absolutely, why not, feel at home". Oh God, I never get tired of the warmth of Peruvian people.

I had a very nice chat with the copilot. I told him about my hobby and about this site, which he was very interested in. He told me he loves the 732, because to use his words "it´s a plane you feel you fly, its not as automated as newer versions". I liked that. He told me Peruvian is slowly phasing out the 732s (Oh noooo   ) and introducing more 737-300s and also (which I was suprised to hear) buying second-hand 737-400 and even 737-700NG!!! Does anybody (maybe Ragazzo) have any info if this is true? I doubt the pilot is lying. If this is true, I hope Peruvian starts international flights as well.

Our beauty, featuring a "marca Perú" or "Peru brand", Peru uses for marketing:
http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e223/checo77/Volunteering%20Cusco/DSC09590.jpg

Actually the Peru brand is a very intersting thing, it has a unique design that dates back to the Inca times. Also, the idea of the brand and the campaing is that every Peruvian person or Peruvian company (or product) is the EMBASSADOR to the country. They have this wonderful slogan "everybody is invited to be the embassador of our country". It is supposed to evoke national pride in Peruvians and working on the premise that a proud person will represent its country better than a million-dollar campaing.

This is how the brand looks like:


If you have time, watch this 15min spot the Peru brand made when they iniciated their campaing. It was a great hit in Peru, I really encourage you to watch, you will learn a lot about Peru in a very funny way:

Destination pictures:

As told at the begining, I went to Cusco as a volunteer. I met Walter, this super friendly Dutch guy who runs his own NGO called HoPe (Foundación Holanda-Perú) which helps schools that are heavily under-financed by the state in the rural areas of the region.
If you get interested in the foundation, they have very nice web pages and if you fancy more info, send me an inbox

After a wonderful week in Cusco, it was time to head back. Check-in was quick and nice, security a breeze. I will keep this part of the trip shorter, since the flight was very very similar to the first leg. Enjoy!

The airport is not very spotting friendly, since it has a double window and all pictures are just horrible.
Boarding was announced on-time and was very efficient. We boarded the 737-200Adv and I was very surprised by the interior of the plane. It was much newer than the flight I took a week back. Seat had adjustable head-rest, were very confy and even featured a legrest. Way to go Peruvian!!! Crew consisted again for four FA´s, two males, two females.

My bag was there in no time and I quickly took a taxi back home.

Conclusion:

I haven´t flown StarPeru yet, but Peruvian is my number one choice when flying domestically in Peru. Much nicer crews than LAN, service is a little better, the seats are very confortable, plus the prices are not drastic (besides, they don´t charge double for foreigners, like LAN does).
I loved the volunteeing experience so much that I will be returning to Cusco on April 21st to spend this time 2 weeks at local schools, spending a total of one week at Patacancha itself helping the English teacher with her clases. I am very much looking forward. I do not have a ticket yet, but I really want to fly Peruvian again, but their prices are higher than LAN (LAN is currently having a sale). Not sure what to do, but I will probably pay the extra fare to fly Peruvian again.

Thanks for reading and every comments will be appreciated   I really recommend you to watch the Peru brand video, its just funny and great   If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I will more than happy to respond.

From Lima with love,

Adam

Wow, what a great report! I have to addmid I am missing Lima and Peru!!!

Quoting Checo77 (Thread starter):
Peru is the 6th country in Latin America I live in and by far its my favorite.

wow, what are the other countrys you lived in Latin America? Costa Rica and?

I really like Peru but for me the favourite country is still Colombia!

Quoting Checo77 (Thread starter):
The CEO of Peruvian accused LAN lobby for the closure, which he never prooved though.

as per my understanding the owner of Peruvian is accused to be in not so smart business as well... thats why they were grounded too...

Quoting Checo77 (Thread starter):
I am always amazed how LAN does it: their planes depart one after another to Cusco, like a metro

really amazing, they have over 20 flights per day or? well better to say from the morning till noon as the airport close up at CUZ at afternoon, once I was in CUZ for a 4:00pm departure flight their were 6 - yes 6 LAN aircrafts the same time in CUZ!

Quoting Checo77 (Thread starter):
Leaving the world´s second largest desertic city behind:

also I hate desertic citys, I love Lima!

Quoting Checo77 (Thread starter):
I am not sure if you are familiar with the approach to CUZ, but the plane basically overflies the city and the airport before making a very tight bank to the left quickly descending around a mountain, alingning to the runway just a few minutes before touchdown. Its not the most dangerous, nor the most exciting approach on Earth, but at least in Latin America, I think it earns its spot in the TOP 10.

its fantastic the approach, for me the best to far in my life (at least from them I can remember), much much more spectacular than UIO or BOG for example!

Muchas gracias mi "Pata" well done!

Hi Adam,

Quoting Checo77 (Thread starter):
I am always amazed how LAN does it: their planes depart one after another to Cusco, like a metro.

Would the passengers be primarily locals or is there a major component of tourists heading off on the Machu Picchu and Titicaca trail?

Thanks for providing a fascinating report on airlines rarely commented on, together with a bit of their background.

The insight into the schools and the photos of the kids are delightful.

I would say its heavy with tourists, but also a lot of locals and business travellers.

the airlines for sure make a hell of money, specially TA and LA who are charged add ons for non peruvian residence people

wow, what are the other countrys you lived in Latin America? Costa Rica and?

Thanks Avianca!!! I lived in Uruguay, Chile, Venezuela, Mexico, Costa Rica and now Peru. I visited every Latin American country except two, one is your country and the second one is Paraguay. How bad is it when I haven´t visited Colombia? I desperately need to fly there! Sightseeing plus eyes those gorgeous women your have there!!!

I really like Peru but for me the favourite country is still Colombia!

as per my understanding the owner of Peruvian is accused to be in not so smart business as well... thats why they were grounded too...

Yes, he was accused of being a boss of a drug cartel or something, but was never charged nor gotten to trial. He probably is not crystal clear, but I support him in his Peruvian Airlines endevour  
Quoting Avianca (Reply 1):
its fantastic the approach, for me the best to far in my life (at least from them I can remember), much much more spectacular than UIO or BOG for example!

Definitely an exiting approach! But the most fantastic approach I experienced was TGU, that is a must! My heart was racing like crazy!

Quoting Quokkas (Reply 2):

Thanks Roy!! I really appreciate your words! Its a weird mix of tourists and locals. Since going to Cusco by road (bus) takes 20hrs and the flight is only 2hr, then the demand is just terribly huge!

Yes! And since 98% of foreigners are unaware of the existence of StarPeru and/or Peruvian Airlines (the only ones that do not charge extra to non-residents), LAN and Taca make pretty good money, when a ticket for a foreigner with LAN does not go under 177 dollars (their "non-resident" minumum, prices are usually much much higher than this minumum), one can get a decent fare of 100 dollars or so on Peruvian or StarPeru.

Hi Adam,

I really like this TR! The 737-200 is on my to-fly list, since I missed my best opportunity in 2006 when DL retired these beasts. Any idea when Peruvian is supposed to be retiring them? I'm currently planning to go to the Bahamas, but UP apparently is renewing its fleet, so I might have to orient myself to either South America or Northern Canada soon.

Peruvian looks quite good. Nice to see you've enjoyed your flights on them!

I really need to see more of the Americas.

Cheers, and thanks for sharing!

I actually did that, I used my OnePass miles to fly from LIM to SJO via PTY and TGU (my family never understood fly I am flying to SJO via TGU jajaja) for 20.000 miles which I thought is a wonderful deal. I used CO´s website which was super user-friendly when redeeming miles, not sure about UA´s website though. But check regularly for great deals on their miles.

I am not sure, but according to the pilot I spoke to, only that particular plane was to be retired. Judging by the re-furbished interior of the 732 on my flight back, I guess they will stick a little longer. Definitely consider Peru as a destination, if you need any more info on Peru or Peruvian, don´t hesitate to contact me.

Ahoj Adam,

great report about this rare and impressive airline! I also like your pictures, well done!

Flights on the 732 are certainly remarkable. I flew on a Sriwijaya Air 732 in November and thoroughly enjoyed it.

He told me Peruvian is slowly phasing out the 732s (Oh noooo ) and introducing more 737-300s and also (which I was suprised to hear) buying second-hand 737-400 and even 737-700NG!!!

Well, of course the 732s must be replaced due to ever increasing fuel and maintenance costs. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see 734s and 73Gs in the fleet soon.

Quoting Checo77 (Thread starter):
We boarded the 737-200Adv and I was very surprised by the interior of the plane. It was much newer than the flight I took a week back. Seat had adjustable head-rest, were very confy and even featured a legrest.

Wow, very nice.

There are still many 732 operators in South America (Venezuela alone has a few), but the question is how reliable and safe those are. Sky Airline of Chile seems to be a nice carrier. And don't forget to have a look at the other side of the world - there's a fine airline called Sriwijaya Air which is currently the largest 732 operator. Have you read my recent report? I can only recommend to try that carrier.

Hi Adam,

Very good stuff! As I said before on commenting to your Iquitos report, you bring back good memories of my trip to Peru. I’ve flown the CUZ-LIM stretch back then, with a B732 of AeroContinente. But they have gone bust ever since, like some more Peruvian airlines have done unfortunately.

Quoting Checo77 (Thread starter):
Last year, the goverment shut them down for about two weeks because there were reported mechanical issues with the airplanes.

It seems to happen more in Peruvian aviation sadly enough. Quite some small domestic airlines not having enough funds to keep their fleet serviced.

Quoting Checo77 (Thread starter):
But its true that LAN hated (and still hates) Peruvian from the day they started, because Peruvian never charged double to foreigners which quickly became popular and Peruvian was taking away pax from LAN, which they did not like.

It’s a dog eat dog world and competition is of course very fierce.

Quoting Checo77 (Thread starter):
I am not sure if you are familiar with the approach to CUZ, but the plane basically overflies the city and the airport before making a very tight bank to the left quickly descending around a mountain, alingning to the runway just a few minutes before touchdown. Its not the most dangerous, nor the most exciting approach on Earth, but at least in Latin America, I think it earns its spot in the TOP 10.

I found CUZ to be a one of a kind airport not only due to the fact that it’s a city airport pur sang, but also because of it’s elevation and the surrounding scenery. In good weather conditions, it’s a real treat take off/land there.

Ahoj Adam,

thanks for your great report! I miss the Andes and I miss flying in South America... I need to go back!

Quoting Checo77 (Thread starter):
The license was given back but only to planes that undertook heavy manteinance checks. That is why Peruvian reduced its number of flights and destionations, they dropped Ilo, Pisco, Trujillo as I remember (they might be more, not sure where exactly they flew before the closure).

One more example that is very hard for an airline flying an older or diverse fleet of aircrafts in South America without political support. AeroSur just went belly-up, let's hope this does not happen with Peruvian. They seem to offer an awesome product. Great seats, immaculate cabins (at least what I can see from your pictures), great service. Let's hope they stay alive and remain a fierce competitor to LAN.

But tell me... why do you sit upfront, don't you want to see the thrust reverser deploying?  

Keep your reports coming and keep and your dedication towards Peru and her people up!

Great trip report! I recently did it but on LAN - I live in Miami Beach so not too much of a long haul to get to, and then flew to CUZ on LAN - the approach is amazing into that airport. I wish I'd tried Peruvian as I really enjoy flying on the old 732's. I loved the city and wasn't really affected by altitude. I liked the cocoa tea but couldn't bear chewing it like a lot of people did.
There were riots and demonstrations in CUZ when we were leaving and they closed the airport right when our flight was leaving to JUL - we still got out though.

You know, I really enjoyed this trip report for the simple reason that I am leaving for Perú on Wednesday for 3 weeks.I will also be spending a couple of days in Cusco so I've made two notes to myself: get a window seat on arrival into Cusco and buy a coca ice cream! I think we're flying LAN but I would try Peruvian if I had the option as they look great.

Again, thanks the report and some really fantastic photos!

Personally no. But I know stories of people passing out in the airport, etc. Coca tea helps, if you don´t believe in natural remedies, there is always the "soroche pills" that help prevent head-aches, the most common symptom of altitude sickness. The tactic of climbing slowly is the best, but 90% of tourist arrive to CUZ from LIM on plane, so for them its not a choice.

I am not sure how old is it, but I can assure you it was very clean, new and in much better visible shape and many DL and/or UA planes I took in the US. Of course, its your choice which airline you take, but it would be a pity to neglect such great airline as Peruvian sure is.

Hey Checo (any relation to Sergio Perez, the Formula 1 driver?),

Thank you very much for this report. A beautiful mix of a rare airline, pretty shots of the destination and an impressive personal story.

First the airline. I recently read up a bit on them, so it was a happy surprise to see them covered here, and it seems they did not disappoint. Glad there is still local competition for LAN (nothing against LAN, but variety and competition is never bad), hopefully they have a bright future. And I have to say, the seats on the way back are the best seats I've ever seen in an economy section. Spacious, by your accounts and visually comfortable, and a very nice color. Not the boring corporate grayish, but not old-fashioned either, very impressive.

But the airline part is topped by the middle part of the story, the visiting of the country side and the school. Providing some assistance to kids in this surroundings, you're very blessed  

I need to visit South America as soon as possible. It seems to be a wonderful continent. Thanks again for the report, much appreciated.

Hi Checo77,

Nice report!

I was actually in Cuzco just yesterday! Unfortunately I couldn't book P9 so I had to book TACA instead. Both flights on their 319 was nice, but you can't compare it to a 732!

Flew down there April 1, took a taxi to Ollantaytambo, took an IncaRail train to Aguas Caliantis, took a bus to Machu Picchu, walked down to A. Caliantis again, took the evening train to Ollantaytambo and slept at Hotel Samanapaq, took a taxi back to Cuzco, experienced Cuzco and flew to LIM on the last Lima service of the day (14:45, TA 101). Only 1 Star Peru flight after that. Than I flew on AC 81 up to YYZ. The Andes were amazing! Would love to go back there one day for a longer period. Also, Iquitos look nice.

Cheers from Niagara Falls (and soon Tokyo on my way around the world),
