LAN Peru increases its presence in the Peruvian interior with its new route connecting Tarapoto and Iquitos. As a play on speed and convenience, the famous comic book character Flash visited Tarapoto on the occasion, underscoring the route’s appeal to business travellers. Manuel Van Oordt, LAN Peru’s GM Sales and Marketing, said: “Since day one of its Tarapoto operation, LAN Peru dedicated itself to the improvement of connectivity within the region, and the new route is a logical advancement.”
- LAN Peru grew its domestic network on 16 April when the airline launched a new route from Tarapoto (TPP) in the north of the country to Iquitos (IQT), the largest city in the country’s rainforest. Flights operate twice-weekly with 144-seat A319s, competing with Star Peru’s daily operations.
