Lima Jorge Chavez (LIM) Airport

Lima Jorge Chavez LIM Airport Overview

Lima Jorge Chávez International Airport LIM (Aeropuerto Internacional Jorge Chávez) is Peru's primary airport, operated by Lima Airport Partners. It had received Skytrax's 'Best Airport in South America' award for six consecutive years, including 2013, and received (for Airports of its size) 'Best Airport Staff Service in South America' award for the third time in 2013.  With an ILS CAT III certification, aircraft landings at the Airport are now made safer during fog conditions.

The Airport is located in the Callao section of Peru's capital city of Lima, 11 km from Lima's Historic Center, and 17 km from Miraflores. Elmer Faucet Avenue links the Airport directly to downtown Lima.

With a very long runway (a second one under construction) and an estimated 15 million passengers a year, Lima Jorge Chavez International is hub to LAN Peru, TACA Peru (which have recently merged) & other domestic airlines, and is served by a host of international airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all parts of the globe.

The automated flight center at Lima Airport can be reached at (511) 511-6055.
The on-Airport four-star 'Ramada Costa del Sol Lima Hotel' (tel. 511 711 2000) is right in front of the control tower and the Arrivals exit. For other hotel accommodations go to ‘Iperu’ counters.

Jorge Chavez International Airport has one passenger terminal,  divided into a Domestic &  International traffic.

Current and future Airport developments:  As LIM has grown from 4 to 15 million passengers between 2001-2013, it was announced in August 2013 that it will undergo much-needed $30M expansion, to be done in phases.
The $850M expansion project will increase the current passenger terminal  to handle up to 30M passengers a year,  and construct a new parking platform - to be completed by 2016.
A second runway is scheduled for completion in 2017.
Other projects include a new infrastructure to attract more airlines,  3 more access roads, a second landing strip, taxiways, cargo terminal and added aircraft parking space.
