Peru & Brazil: Air France-KLM Flights Starting at €385 From Italy & Switzerland (+€80 for Luggage)

miraflores lima

SkyTeam partners Air France & KLM are selling quite cheap tickets to many of their South American destinations in Peru and Brazil for those who can depart from Italy and Switzerland. Prices start at only €385 for flights to Lima. Luggage, however, is not included and would cost another €80 for everyone who is not a SkyTeam Elite status holder.


Air France and KLM will let you cancel all flights through March 2022 for free. You’d get your money back as a voucher, which can then be fully refunded to your bank account. You can read more about this here.

There’s quite good availability until May 2022.

You can fly to the following South American cities:

The cheapest prices are for flights from Bologna. For a small surcharge, you can also fly from Milan, Rome, Venice, and Turin. Alternatively, you can also fly from Basel or Zurich for roughly €50 more.

First, you would either fly to Paris or Amsterdam, before continuing your trip to South America on a long-haul flight to your final destination. If you’re flying to Recife or Salvador, you’ll have a second layover in Brazil (e.g. in Sao Paulo or in Fortaleza), from where GOL will fly you to your final destination.


We expect further shakeups in the airline industry over the following months. Some services might be cancelled, aircraft changed or downgraded. The schedule we describe may very well change.

    For tickets starting in Italy you can skip the first segment without penalty as per an Italian court decision. Just make sure to have it issued in Italy and inform the airline that you will be missing the first segment. (Emirates has a separate website for this). Of course at your own risk
