Air Travel

LAN flies to Iquitos five times daily from Lima. Peruvian Airlines and Star Peru each fly to Iquitos twice a day, but charge considerably less than LAN. Iquitos's Aeropuerto Internacional Francisco Secada Vignetta is 8 km (5 miles) from the city center. A taxi to the airport should cost around S/10. LAN has three daily flights from both Lima and Cusco to Aeropuerto Padre Aldámiz, 5 km (3 miles) from the center of Puerto Maldonado. TACA and Star Peru each have one Lima–Puerto Maldonado flight daily, which stop in Cusco. Star Peru usually has the best deals.
