Repatriation flights from Peru
The Foreign & Commonwealth Office charters more repatriation flights from Peru to help British nationals return home.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has chartered 3 British Airways flights to help hundreds more British tourists in Peru return to the UK over the next few days, the first flight departed Lima yesteray.
The FCO will also charter domestic flights from Cusco and Arequipa to Lima so that UK nationals can transfer to the London-bound flights. This follows the British Airways charter flight organised by the FCO which took 172 vulnerable British people and their dependents back to the UK earlier this week.
All commercial internal and international transport connections in Peru are closed and there are tens of thousands of foreign visitors of all nationalities seeking to leave. The FCO is in contact with British travelers with the details of the flights so they can take up the offer to return to the UK.
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab recently said:
The Foreign Office has chartered 3 more flights for British travelers in Peru – as well as domestic flights to help those in Cusco. We continue to work around the clock to help British travellers struggling to get back to the UK and thank the Peruvian government for all their support in making this happen.
British nationals in urgent distress and who need immediate consular assistance can call +4420 7008 1500. This number is available 24/7.
- the first flight bringing in UK Nationals from Peru landed in London on 26 March 2020. Approximately 170 British nationals and dependants were aboard the flight
- seats on the first flight prioritised those UK nationals most at risk from the effects of coronavirus – namely elderly people and those with underlying health conditions
- we continue to maintain contact with those in Peru who have asked for support. This includes those currently in Cusco
- the FCO wants to ensure that all British nationals in Peru contact our dedicated team to register if they wish to leave. They can get in touch at: email@example.com
