The Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (CUZ) receives domestic and international flights to Cusco, and it’s the only airport servicing Peru’s most famous tourist city.
International passengers coming in from La Paz in Bolivia or Bogota in Colombia will fly directly into Cusco Airport. Passengers arriving from other international destinations outside of Latin America will inevitably have a stopover in Peru's capital city, Lima.
Due to its location within a mountainous area, Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport has limited operating hours from 5:30 am to 8:00 pm. Weather conditions may impact flights to Cusco, which are often delayed.
The local currency is the Sol and, for better rates, it’s best to exchange cash at one of the offices in the city centre rather than at the airport. Alternatively, you can use one of the ATMs on the first floor which accept all major debit and credit cards.
A mere 10-minute drive away from the centre, the best way to travel from the airport to Cusco is by taxi, and you can book one at the taxi counter in the baggage claim area. A ride with an official taxi will cost about S/35 (C$ 14). There are unofficial taxi alternatives if you’d like to negotiate the fare, however these taxis aren’t metred. Prices will vary but you shouldn’t pay more than S/10 or S/15 (about C$ 4 or C$ 6).
