After two years Jorge Chavez Airport presented a colorful artistic show for the Bicentennial of Peru

As part of the celebrations for Peru's Bicentennial, Lima Airport Partners (LAP) presented an impressive show of typical dances from the coast, highlands and jungle of Peru at Jorge Chávez International Airport. The event counted with the participation of 20 artists from the Cultural Association "Somos Romero Paiva" from Callao, who performed typical dances from the country's regions, with the required security measures of Covid-19 prevention. "At LAP we commemorate the 200th anniversary of Peru's independence, and in that framework highlight the richness of our regions. We are an airport committed to a cultural transformation that values and respects the diversity of Peruvians and places us as an important gateway that connects with the world. Jorge Chávez Airport is a space that brings together all passengers with its essence, culture and the warmth of their home," said Rocío Espinoza, Reputation Manager of Lima Airport Partners. As part of the Bicentennial celebrations, Jorge Chávez hosted a series of activities such as the inauguration of the Artistic Mural, which brought together four renowned Peruvian muralists who painted concepts of diversity and culture on a 145-meter long wall. There was also a Mapping projection at the new Control Tower of the Airport Expansion Project, where cultural images were illuminated on a building more than 60 meters high, and other internal activities for collaborators. "In the midst of the difficult situation caused by the pandemic, we have managed to continue with the airport operations, for the recovery of the airport and tourism industry. Although it is true that our sector was one of the most affected by the health crisis, last year we managed to reactivate flight and passenger traffic by applying all the required biosecurity measures," said Rocío Espinoza. Finally, LAP remains committed to promoting a new travel culture, focused on offering a unique, simple and efficient service experience that connects passengers with Peruvian culture.
