The airport of Talara was used mainly by the military after its establishment, during the Second World War the United States Air Force was stationed. After the last American plane was launched in 1944, the airport was almost forgotten. The flights to the region were covered by the Piura airport.
It was not until 2014 that Talara reopened its doors for commercial flights. The airport is not particularly large, but modern, the inhabitants of Peru now have a quick way to get from the interior to the coast. The reopening is a victory not only for tourism, but also for the economy in Talara.
Although the Talara airport is an international airport, civilian passengers are only offered a connection within the country: LATAM connects Talara with Lima. The prices of tickets are between 50 and 100 US dollars. In addition, several airlines charter flights to Lima, Tumbes, Chiclayo and Trujillo.
