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, 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]
