Lima Airport: International Departures

Jorge Chávez International Airport, known as Aeropuerto Internacional Jorge Chávez in Spanish, is Peru's main international and domestic airport. It is located in Callao, 11 kilometers from the Historic Centre of Lima and 17 km from Miraflores. Callao is the port city now fully integrated with Lima, the nation's capital.


Lima's airport is spread on one long isle of shops and gates. Duty free and shopping, it can easily be visited completely in minutes.

Located on the second floor, the food court has outlets of: McDonald's, Papa John's, Starbucks and others, there is also a Dunkin' Donuts next to the main entrance of the terminal. They are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, as this airport has no closing time. There is also a place (before security check and after entering the airport through a secured parking lot area to go to baggage check) with various ice cream flavors with some special flavors from Peru, such as Chirimoya and Lucuma. There is a way to the food court without having to go through security check.

What caught my attention are several points to look after. You can find a sushi bar, I personally found collar molds which I was death king to find for a lifetime, sit at one of their cafes or grab a sandwich on the go by be prepared to pay double the city prices. Lima being an affordable city where things are cheap transformed into european prices after check-in.


Jorge Chavez Airport has various VIP Salons in the departures terminal, such as "VIP Peru", a luxury waiting room with bars, tables, and other amenities. For passengers in First class, there is an exclusive salon near the gates,"VIP Club". And renovated the "Sumaq VIP Lounge", a lounge exclusively for first and business class passengers nominated as the best VIP lounge of the year by the survey of the "Priority Pass" VIP Network.

Sumaq is the lounge, a quick stop before taking KLM over her Atlantic.
