Star Perú, one of the largest domestic airlines in Peru, has obtained permission to fly to a number of international destinations throughout the Americas.
According to the Peruvian T News website, the airline has been granted an operating permit for non-scheduled passenger, cargo and mail flights to nations throughout South, Central and North America, including the United States and Canada.
