Hotels in Cusco support evening flights

10 September 2013

Planes will use modern aerial navigation technology to ensure safety.
CANATUR, Peru’s National Chamber of Tourism, reassured potential travellers in a press release that the new evening flights in and out of Cusco’s Velasco Astete airport will be safe.

As of the beginning of September, the early evening schedule for flights arriving at and departing from Velasco Astete was extended from 5:30 to 7:45. CANATUR explained in the press release that planes will be equipped with cutting-edge technology that allows planes to navigate more accurately and efficiently. Flights in and out of Cusco will use Required Navigation Performance (RNP) technology, that helps planes fly even under circumstances of impaired vision.

Carlos Canales Anchorena, president of CANATUR, said that “[RNP] allows for much more precise aerial navigation and completely safe operations even in conditions of reduced visibility, which helps avoid delays and flight cancellations.”

“This new technology, which is considered the most modern system worldwide, lets us operate with 100% safety in conditions of reduced visibility— conditions that before would have required us to delay or cancel flights,” Canales Anchorena said in the release. “This system allows the same level of safety and efficiency for flights, even without daylight.”

Canales Anchorena pointed out that RNP technology helped 30,000 travellers avoid delays or cancellations when flying to or from Velasco Astete in the first year since its implementation.

The release also notes that using RNP technology allows planes to take more efficient routes, reducing CO2 emissions and noise pollution.
