PERU MAKES FAMILY TRAVEL EASY!

As our kids grow older, we lose some of the benefits of traveling with kids.  Several US airlines offer early boarding for infants in arms and Southwest offers boarding between A and B groups for children 6 and under. Our kids are 7 and 9 so we haven’t had any benefits lately.

Well Peru loves kids 12 and under. Not only Latam airlines treats kids 12 and under special, but so do all the airports.

Upon arriving in Lima and transiting to Cusco, you have to get your bags and then check them back in at the normal check counter.  A Latam employee insisted that we use the special needs line since we had kids. We said even with kids 7 and 9? and they insisted.

LATAM

Then going back through security, there was a special line that their TSA equivalent insisted we use.

Then boarding the plane, special needs persons and kids board first. Ahead of first class and elite members!

Then coming back to the airport departing Cusco and then transiting in Lima to Guayaquil it was the exact same thing!

I was hoping this was a Latam policy, or something throughout South America. We tried to use these lines again once outside of Peru and got shot down by airline and airport employees. So this was in Peru only.
