Facts about Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (CUZ):

  • A new airport in the suburb of Chinchero has been announced but this has created controversy as this area is home to the Pampas of Chinchero, an ecological monument.
  • In addition to being known as "Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport", another name for CUZ is "Aeropuerto Internacional Alejandro Velasco Astete".
  • Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (CUZ) currently has only 1 runway.
  • The furthest airport from Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (CUZ) is Buon Ma Thuot Airport (BMV), which is nearly antipodal to Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (meaning Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from Buon Ma Thuot Airport), and is located 12,377 miles (19,918 kilometers) away in Buon Me Thuot, Vietnam.
  • On August 9, 1970, LANSA Flight 502, a four-engine engine Lockheed L-188A Electra turboprop, crashed shortly after takeoff from the Cusco airport, killing 99 of the 100 people on board, plus two people on the ground, in the deadliest accident in Peru's aviation history to that date.
  • Because of Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport's high elevation of 10,860 feet, planes must typically fly at a faster airspeed in order to takeoff or land at CUZ. Combined with a high temperature, this could make CUZ a "Hot & High" airport, where the air density is lower than it would otherwise be at sea level.
