Cusco Alejandro Velasco Astete Airport

General information

Cusco Alejandro Velasco Astete Airport is located in the east of Cusco, a city of 430,000 inhabitants. The airport is known as the nearest airport to the popular tourist attraction Machu Picchu. The airport is located in the middle of a densely populated area and has because of that no expansion options. For this reason, it was decided in 2017 to build a new, larger airport in Chinchero, approximately 45 minutes’ drive from Cusco. This airport will be named Chinchero International Airport and open in 2024 or later. Cusco Alejandro Velasco Astete Airport will then be closed and turned into a city park.
