Pucallpa’s decent-sized airport is 5km northwest of town. The best connections are with Star Perú with direct flights leaving from Lima at 8:30am and 4:30pm – the morning flight continues to Iquitos. For Pucallpa–Lima, the times are 1pm and 6:10pm. Another option is LAN with three daily (but much pricier) flights to Lima.
Other towns and settlements – including Atalaya (on the Río Ucayali), Contamaná, Tarapoto and Yurimaguas – are served by small local airlines using light aircraft; ask at the airport.
