LIMA, Oct 6, 2020, ANDINA. Transport and Communications Minister Carlos Estremadoyro on Monday affirmed that, currently — since the resumption of domestic travel— flights are available to almost all destinations across the country, ANDINA reported.

“Currently, domestic flights are available to almost all destinations throughout the country, and that will surely result in an increase in the flow of passengers at the airport. Although, the control of domestic and international flights has already been discussed,” he said.

“We have made assessments on domestic flights every 15 days, as some regions and provinces opened and closed,” he added.

According to Estremadoyro, who joined President Martin Vizcarra in the resumption of international flights earlier today, the protocols for domestic and international flights were developed with the help of experts.

“Medical specialists have provided recommendations, and they have been contained in a resolution, which states how to transport people,” he stated.

The minister explained that international flights resumed today with a flight from Chile, where the need to transport people was greater. However, other countries have scheduled flights for the following days.

“Only 55 passengers are coming on this first flight (from Chile), since others were not able to get the test done in time, so we have talked to airlines so that their travel can be rescheduled until they take the test,” he said earlier on Monday.
