Alert: Repatriation Travel Options and Associated Costs, Peru (April 18, 2020)

Location: Peru (countrywide)

Event:  An Eastern Airlines flight is departing from Lima to Miami at 3:00 PM today.  Eastern Airlines is offering an additional flight from Lima to Miami pending sufficient booking interest – on April 20 (Monday) and on April 21 (Tuesday).

Private tour operator Solange Reps notified the U.S. Embassy of a possible charter flight from Lima to Miami on Sunday, April 19. As of this Alert, our understanding is the flight is fully booked but not yet confirmed with LATAM.

The cost of private charter flights: Although the U.S. Embassy coordinates with private sector partners, ultimately, private airlines set their own prices.  Airline ticket prices are commercial decisions that factor in the costs associated with operating non-standard flights without the infrastructure and support of an open commercial airport.  The U.S. Embassy does not determine the price.

As travel partners give us credible information about available charter flights, we will continue to share sign-up links and other booking information.  We continue to explore and will inform of all viable repatriation options for Americans in Peru.

The U.S. government has appreciated your feedback as we continue to work hard to bring #AmericansHome.
