Jorge Chávez International Airport Guidelines:  Travelers are reminded that all repatriation flights now depart from the Jorge Chávez International Airport.   Please keep the following in mind as you are making travel arrangements, and plan accordingly: 

  • Be prepared to wait for extended periods of time. The return to ​commercial airport is likely to produce delays as new measures are implemented for the first time.

  • All passengers are subject to security screening.
  • All passengers are subject to health screening before boarding.  Passengers should expect to have their temperature taken and should be prepared to answer health-related questions.  Passengers suspected of having COVID-19 will not be allowed to board. 
  • Bring ​snacks.  Food facilities may not be open, and repatriation flights have limited food options.
  • Bring your own sanitizer and wipes​, but note that liquids may be restricted due to airport security regulations.
  • Face masks AND face shields are required at all times at Jorge Chávez International Airport.  Face masks are required while traveling on the airplane to comply with Peruvian and U.S. government regulations.
  • No smoking is allowed.
  • Check with your travel provider in advance to arrange appropriate accessibility measures prior to arriving at the airport.  Wheelchair availability may be limited.  Airline staff can assist in very limited circumstances.  If you need additional assistance, you may need to travel with a companion who can assist.
