I wonder what the impact of the newly announced "night flights" to Cusco will have on them and the other hotels ,hostels in the area?

And I wonder how they factored in the airport expansion. What does adjacent mean when the terminal will be on the other side, as will be the new access road? I guess it doesn't matter much. Nice to see competition for the expensive Ramada.

I don't think many travellers would care to stay in hotels near the airport (ok, maybe backpackers), but for the rest, sleeping in a "telo" is not an option. So many people or either stay at the Ramada, or sleep somewhere around the airport in a very uncomfortable chair.

I think it's great they are opening another hotel in the airport. Consider that there are quite a few connecting flights not only national but international, there are business travellers that need somewhere to spend a few hours before they depart, or when they first come in before they go on their way... so the Cusco night flights should not signify a decrease in hotel guests.
Regards,

The filthy carpet in front of the internet cafe at the second floor at the airport won't have to worry about competition from the new Holiday Inn. The carpet is always ''fully booked'' and has it's regular customers. And price wise, it will be tough for the Holiday Inn to compete with the 'filthy carpet'.

Never seen a carpet anywhere at Lima airport, dirty or otherwise. And I go there 40-50 times a year. Maybe something missing in the translation. I have always wondered why folks do not use the chapel to rest, nice benches, certainly peaceful and who would bother anyone in a chapel :)

Go to the domestic arrivals area and then take the escalator upstairs. And look at your right. In front of the internet cafe, there's a carpeted area. There's always a bunch of backpackers sleeping in that area.

I think that if you lay down and sleep on the benches in the chapel then you will be kicked out. Especially if you snore very loudly.

People who have flights to the Provinces, people like myself whos final destination is Chiclayo, prefer to stay close to the airport. Most flight to the provinces are next day.

Lima needs to create new attractions for tourism.

Once Cusco have a new international airport, with direct flights from all over the world, Lima won't be the door of entrance to Peru, anymore. It means hotels, restaurants, buses and the rest of services needed for tourism will decrease..

Nowadays, flights to and from Tarapoto are very well scheduled. It's no longer required to stay overnight in creepy Lima if you want to travel to fabulous Tarapoto.

The last STARPERU flight bound for Lima is now even earlier so that all the Cowboys and Cowgirls can still get on time in Lima to catch the last flight with American Airlines to Dallas/Forth Worth.
