Live it up in Lima with Air Europa
Air Europa has launched daily flights to Lima as the airline keeps up with growing UK demand for flights to the Peruvian capital.
With competitive prices and short connections times of less than three and a half hours, the daily service from London Gatwick via Madrid will carry even more holidaymakers to the culinary capital of the Americas, with its UNESCO-listed historical centre. The daily departures mean it's even easier to explore the country's Ancient pre-Colombian temples, diverse museums and the ruins of Machu Picchu.
"From three weekly departures in 2010, Lima has grown into a key route for us and I'm delighted we can now provide UK travellers with even greater choice and flexibility when flying to Peru." says Colin Stewart, UK General Manager, Air Europa.
Hailed as the next big thing in gastronomy, and with London celebrating Peruvian cuisine with National Ceviche Week from 23 - 30 June, there's never been a better time to book a Peruvian getaway.
