COVID 19: Peru’s cases climb as airlines work to relaunch

Premium Analysis

The outbreak of COVID-19 occurred later in Latin America than other areas in the world, and countries in the region remain in the depths of the crisis. Peru issued 'stay at home' orders early on in the pandemic, yet its case counts remain high, second behind Brazil's in South America.

Similarly to other countries in Latin America, Peru was charting solid passenger growth before the pandemic, with low cost operators driving some of the expansion.

But the market was experiencing changing dynamics during the last couple of years, and it appears that there will be three dominant domestic airlines in Peru when the dust settles.

The country appears poised to reopen its airspace in the coming weeks, and stakeholders are stressing that financial relief is urgently needed for Peru's aviation industry.
