Star Perú, formerly called Star Up, is an airline based at Jorge Chávez International Airport in Lima, Peru. It is a scheduled airline operating passenger and cargo flights within Peru. The carrier only flies domestic routes in Peru, and one short international flight to the Brazilian Amazon, from its base in Lima.

History[edit]

The airline was established in May 1997 as Servicio de Transporte Aéreo Regional by the chief executive, Valentin Kasyanov. Operations were inaugurated with a single Antonov An-32 aircraft flying cargo and charter services around South America.[1]

In late 2004, Star Perú began scheduled commercial domestic flights after having acquired a Boeing 737-200.[2] Based on monthly growth of passenger traffic, Star Perú was the fastest growing airline in Peru in 2005.[1]
