ATSA Airlines is a Peruvian airline offering more than 15 scheduled weekly flights to domestic destinations within Peru. The airline flies to top tourist destinations within Peru with the ambition to help foster the development of the country. As well as commercial flights, the airline also operates charter flights, VIP flights, and MEDEVAC flights. The airline has over 39 years of experience and operates under the support of the Romero Group.
In 2019, the airline announced it will be investing in a new fleet of larger capacity aircraft in order to meet the high demand. The airline also proposed to open routes to new destinations. However, in 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic, ATSA Airlines had to put its expansion plans on hold. Instead, it actually decreased the number of destinations that it flies to, stopping its only international service to Leticia, Colombia and reducing the number of domestic destinations that it flies to too.
The airline launched in 1980 as a charter airline and has more than 40 years of flying experience. It launched scheduled flights in the years following. Its first-ever international flight was a service from Lima to Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia. The airline no longer flies this route or any other international route at this time.
