Peru’s aviation authorities have given Peruvian Global Transport – Aeroperú’s holding company – a 4-year permit to operate commercial domestic flights, for non-scheduled passenger, cargo and mail.
According to Gestión, Aeroperú still needs to obtain the appropriate operating and technical specification certificates before beginning flights.
The airline said its flights would be to Cachapoyas, Amazonas, Ancash, Arequipa, Ayacucho, Cajamarca, Cusco, Huánuco, Ica, La Libertad, Lambayeque, Loreto, Madre de Dios, Moquegua, Pasco, Piura, Pun, San Martin, Tacna, Tumbes, Ucayali, Apurimac, and Lima.
The airline said it would be based out of Jorge Chavez International Airport in Lima, and airports in Iquitos and Tarapoto.
According to the report, Aeroperú registered Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier, Embraer, Lear Jet, and Gulfstream airplanes.
The last Aeroperú flight was in 1999, when the company decided to cease operations and liquidated its assets.
