Cusco, Peru, July 14, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- LAN has further extended its flight network in Latin America by adding a new route connecting the USA with the “Land of the Incas.” At the beginning of July LAN added their fourth US gateway city by announcing departures from San Francisco International Airport with the new non-stop service to Lima, Peru.
LAN Peru, a division of LAN Chile, has started operations offering four flights a week to Lima running on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday with connecting services to many other Peruvian and international destinations from the modern Jorge Chavez International Airport in Lima which acts as a major flight hub for South America. San Francisco joins the other 3 United States gateways cities of New York, Los Angeles and Miami and the route will operate with Boeing 767s carrying 221 passengers.
Peru is a very popular tourist destination due to the rich cultural and natural attractions to be found in this Andean country. World famous attractions such as Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Incas, the mysterious Nazca Lines, the lovely city of Cusco and the natural wealth of the Amazon Jungle draw hundreds of thousands of people from the USA every year. This new route from California makes the trip even easier.
Passengers can also easily connect in Lima to visit other World Wonders such as the Corcovado in Rio de Janeiro, the spectacular Iguasu Falls, The unique Galapagos Islands or enjoy the cultured city of Buenos Aires.
Escaped to Peru is a Peru based tour operator specialized in custom tours for the US market and will be taking advantage of this new flight route allowing more west coast visitors to visit Peru easily.
