Lima Jorge Chavez Intl

Lima, Peru

About The Airport

Jorge Chávez International is Peru's main airport. It's named for Jorge Chávez Dartnell, a Peruvian aviator who died in the world's first attempt to cross the Alps by air. Although it's a compact airport with a single terminal, it's also one of South America's busiest airports, which is especially noticeable at night when international flights arrive. Planning for expanding the airport got underway in 2017.
