COVID-19 New Safety and Health Protocols

At PeruRail we care about your health and that of our employees, so we have implemented new Safety and Health Protocols so that together we can travel again to this magical place.

What are we doing?

Our staff and offices
  • Our offices and workspaces are implemented to provide for appropriate physical distancing in addition to informative and audiovisual guidance.
  • Our employees receive training through regular briefings under constant control and are subject to symptom screening and temperature checks.
  • The ticket office and on-board service staff comply with cleaning and disinfection through proper hand washing for 20 seconds and use of hand gel. We guarantee that staff are regularly examined by our physician.
  • All employees must wear a face mask and face shield during working hours.
  • The distance between staff and passengers will be at least 1 meter.
  • We have specialized and trained staff to perform correct cleaning and thorough disinfection of our cars.
Implementation of the best Air Sanitation System
  • Complying with international standards, the best Air Sanitation System is being implemented aboard our train services.
  • This new system has 4 technologies recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) and its composition is sustainable, not registering a negative impact on the environment.
    • HEPA filters: The air is blown into the system, filtering microscopic virus particles.
    • FAR UVC lamps: This technology helps eliminate retained pathogens.
    • Air ionizers: The ionizer prevents airborne particles from being suspended and allows purified air to circulate.
    • Controlled ozone: Total cleaning and sterilization process.
  • This modern system allows us to operate at 100% capacity in each of our train services.
  • Learn more about this new system.
