Lima. Mar. 21 (ANDINA)- Peruvian airline Star Peru will launch its first international flight connecting Lima. Cusco and Rio Branco in Brazil in late April or early May as part of its international expansion plan. announced the company’s commercial manager Diego Sarro.
According to Diego Sarro. the Lima-based airline will operate two flights per week. on Mondays and Thursdays.
In 2008. Star Peru was in talks to open the Lima-Rio Branco (Brazil) route. which was ruled out because the Brazilian airport lost its international category; however. the airline was still interested in this destination.
'Authorities in the (Brazilian) state of Acre did everything possible to get the airport's certification as an international airport reinstated and therefore we have taken up the project with them. Now our job is to check that everything is in order to start operations as soon as possible.' he said.
In this regard. Sarro added that the airline expects to make its inaugural flight in early April or early May.
