See Nazca on the way to Cusco

There is now another flight option for travelers in Peru. LC Peru is now offering domestic passenger flights to several cities throughout Peru, including Lima and Cusco. This airline actually started back in 1993 as a cargo carrier. In 2011 they partnered with USMP and changed their name to LC Peru. The company operates Canadian, Bombardier DASH 8-202 aircraft that can transport 37 passengers.

One route in particular that may be of interest to our guests will be the Lima/Pisco/Cusco route. This route will be available starting in April and will take passengers from Lima to Pisco where they can board a smaller aircraft to fly over the Nazca lines, after the Nazca flyover, passengers will then re-board the larger plane and fly on to Cusco.


Current options on their website have this taking two days, most likely due to the late hour in which the Nazca flights finish, as Cusco is a VFR (Visual Flight Rule) airport, flights can only arrive and depart during daylight hours. We checked for a one way flight in May, Lima/Pisco/Cusco with Nazca flight, total cost for this package was $681.56. While this seems a bit high to me I have never looked into doing a Nazca trip from Lima, returning to Lima and then on to Cusco, definitely something new to consider though.
