Planning to fly Lan lima, Arequipa, Puno, Cuzco, Lima

We are planning on flying on Lan between these locations. Is there any risk that we will not fly on the day we planned?

We are just trying to have a relaxing trip and would like to avoid long bus rides if possible.

Thank you for your feedback

Theres always a chance but at least LAN has multiple departures usually on all their routes so Id say its only a very small chance.

We just got back from Peru a few weeks ago and were worried about that also as it was the end of the rainy season .. we had no issues at all. We flew LAN between Lima, Arequipa, Puno, Cusco, Puerto Maldonado (in torrential downpours) and back up to Lima with not one problem. They were always on time (to the minute) and were really professional and extremely well run. On many occassions we commented that North American airlines could learn a thing or two from how LAN operated.

Have a great trip! I would go back in a heartbeat.

What kind of check n times are/were you facing in Cusco, Arequipa and Lima on domestic flights? Do you really have to be in the airport 2 hours before the flight? Thanks!

No more likely to be delayed overnight than any other major airline. Possible but odds are small,

Arequipa airport is really, really small. Only two gates. Our hotel said we could get there 1hr before flight. We were there two hr ahead anyway and were checked in and through security in 10min.

In Lima, yes 2hr would be good. It is big and has lines like any other major airport. Don't know about cusco. Only flew in, not out.

You can check in and get your boarding pass 48 hours before your flight and this will allow you to arrive to the airport one hour before your flight or go straight to the boarding gate if you only have a carry on.

What if you don't only have a carry on?

If you have checked luggage you still need to wait in line at the check in desk bag drop line.
