IATA issues recommendations for Peruvian aviation industry recovery

    IATA regional vice president for the Americas Peter Cerda issued (21-Jun-2021) the following recommendations for the recovery of Peru‘s aviation industry:

    • Provision of sufficient operating capacity to meet passenger demand at Lima Jorge Chavez International Airport;
    • Elimination of requirement for international passengers to wear face shields;
    • Adjustment of entry requirements for fully vaccinated passengers;
    • Adjustment of policy of mandatory distancing between passengers in airports;
    • Acceptance of digital travel credentials such as IATA‘S Travel Pass;
    • Completion of Lima International Airport expansion project;
    • Prevention of higher operating costs, overregulation or imposition of fees and charges that reduce competitiveness compared to regional operators;
    • Prioritisation of vaccinating front line aviation workers.

    Mr Cerda outlined the recommendations during meetings with various aviation industry members on a visit to the country, urging collaboration with the Government towards their implementation. IATA estimated passenger demand in Peru in 2020 suffered a 72% reduction due to COVID-19, resulting in a USD3.4 billion loss in GDP.
