Star Perú joins ALTA

The Latin American and Caribbean Air Transport Association (ALTA) has announced the addition of Star Peru as a new member airline. Affiliation that further strengthens the network of 46 airlines responsible for more than 80 percent of passenger traffic in the region that actively collaborate to promote the safe, efficient and sustainable development of the airline industry for the benefit of the communities and countries of the region.

“We are excited to welcome the entire Star Peru team as members of our association,” stated José Ricardo Botelho, Executive Director and CEO of ALTA.

“The incorporation of Star Peru enriches the dynamics of our working groups with their experiences, challenges and ideas and reinforces our commitment to work together to continue offering more and more people in more places the safest and most efficient means of transport available.”

With a trajectory that took off in March 1997, Star Peru has demonstrated a solid commitment to safety, quality and operational excellence. Equipped with a fleet that includes Boeing 737-300 and Bombardier Dash 8-Q402 aircraft, the airline offers both domestic and international charter flights on demand, facilitating vital connections between important destinations in the region.

The airline, which has 330 employees, currently operates in seven domestic destinations in Peru, a country whose domestic and international air passenger traffic increased 7 percent and 24 percent, respectively, in 2023 compared to 2022. In addition, after the pandemic, the company strengthened its private commercial flight services, which experienced a significant increase in popularity in Latin America, with demand growing 70 percent in the last three years, according to the newspaper Gestión Perú.

Star Peru’s inclusion in ALTA marks a milestone in our mission to promote excellence in the Latin American and Caribbean airline industry,” added Botelho.

“We look forward to working closely with the entire team, especially this year when we will hold our ALTA Aviation Safety, Flight Ops & Training Summit in Lima from 18-20th June.

“This is a key event for executives dedicated to excellence in air operations in the Americas, the Caribbean, Europe and Africa.”
