Travelers arriving at Lima’s International Airport Jorge Chavez in Callao or wanting to get to the airport until recently only had two choices to get to town: arrange a pick-up with the hotel or a private transport service never knowing if they show up or take a taxi never feeling sure to arrive safely or to not being ripped off.
