The new airport in Chinchero (Peru), which is expected to be completed by the year 2020, will allow passengers from Miami to avoid in Lima’s Jorge Chavez International Airport by flying directly to the Cusco region.
Chinchero is a small traditional town of just under 10,000 residence, located 30km from Cusco.
Once the airport is finished it is possible that the airport will also connect to many Latin American capitals. Not only that, potentially any foreign city could have flights direct to the new airport, however there will be technical constraints and trade issues of the airlines consider.
As the airport will be located at an altitude of 3,700 meters above sea level (that’s 300 meters higher than Cusco’s Velasco Astete Airport) take off and landings will be more demanding.
