Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (IATA: CUZ, ICAO: SPZO) serves Cusco, Peru the country's largest tourist attraction. It receives flights from all over Peru and a few international destinations. Its runway is fully paved. It is named after Peruvian pilot Alejandro Velasco Astete who was the first person to fly over the Andes in 1925 flying to this airport. Later that year, in September, while trying to avoid crashing into spectators in the city of Puno he crashed and was killed. The airport is the gateway to the marvelous and intriguing city of Cusco, which is the center of the South American travel network, and to perhaps the most famous city in ruins in the world, Machu Picchu.
