Startup Air Peru International Taking Off Next Month
11/21/2007

Startup carrier Air Peru International (API) would take off as soon as its operating license and other paperwork is completed, probably in December, CEO Guillermo de la Torre said at a news conference this week in Lima.

The airline will serve two domestic destinations, Cusco and Iquitos, with a Boeing 757-200. Long-term plans include flying to the U.S., and Latin America. Initial equity capital has been supplied by private Peruvian investors.

I like the way their logo on the website is the one from the Primaris aircraft!

While the 757 is overkill for the domestic flying, an early priority will be getting a Miami route up and running ASAP.

Apparently plans call for 6-7 aircraft within a couple years. Let see what happens.

Good luck to them. So it seems they might start a Miami route sooner than Aerocondor.

Don't like the paintscheme much on that Primaris plane but hey it finally got some titles. Will be good to see a Peruvian airline at Miami again.
