 CUZ Cusco Airport Info & Guide


Cusco Airport

Where is Cusco Airport?  


The city of Cusco is located in southeastern Peru, in the Southern Sierra Mountains, near the Urubamba Valley of the Andes mountain range.


Located at the site of the historic capital of the Inca Empire, Cusco is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, attracting near 2 million visitors a year. Cusco is a popular starting point for tourists travelling to Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley of the Incas.


Cusco International Airport (IATA: CUZ, ICAO: SPZO), officially Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport,  also referred to as Alejandro Velasco Astete Airport, or simply Cusco Airport, is located right in the city of Cusco, in Cusco Province, Peru. The airport is named to honour Peruvian Alejandro Velasco Astete, who, in 1925, was the first pilot to cross the Andes.


In 2013, Cusco Airport served 2,308,110 passengers, making it Peru's second busiest airport. This is despite CUZ airport's limited capacity: the long runway, required for high elevation take offs, is precarious located near the city's centre, and surrounded by mountains, permitting daytime-only operations. Construction of a new airport, in nearby Chinchero, was announced in 2012.


Airlines that fly to Cusco Airport include Amaszonas, Avianca, LAN Peru, Peruvian Airlines and Star Peru.


Cities with flights to Cusco Airport include Arequipa, Juliaca, La Paz, Lima and Puerto Maldonado.
