Foreign visitors in Peru reached up to 3.8 million in 2016, which was confirmed by the Foreign Trade and Tourism department, increasing by 7.8% from the year before.
This statistic counts for visitors who stay for at least one night in Peru.
Moreover, the FTAT department wants to double these numbers in the next years.
They aim to achieve this goal by improving infrastructure and making a second runway at the airport of Jorge Chavez International Airport in Lima, starting January 2017.
Also, this should help the busy airport of Lima to decentralize its terminal. Domestic flights go through Cusco or other airports, such as Air Group 8 Military Complex or Las Palmas airport.
