Grupo 8 Airbase Restrictions and Limitations:  Travelers are reminded that all repatriation flights depart from the Grupo 8 Peruvian Air Force Base in Callao.  This is not a conventional airport and, as a result, has restrictions and limitations.  Please keep the following in mind as you are making travel arrangements, and plan accordingly:

  • Check-in, security screenings, and waiting areas are located outdoors.  Passengers should bring a jacket, ​comfortable shoes, as well as any other items to ensure you are comfortable while waiting to board the repatriation flight.  Seating in waiting areas is ​in plastic chairs and limited.
  • The Grupo 8 Airbase is a controlled-access facility and movement is restricted.  Passengers are not allowed to move outside the designated areas while waiting to board their flight.
