The airport is a two-floor building that do not have elevator, though it has escalator. Between the first and the second floor, there are ramps with steep slope, disabled people need help here. The accessible routes to the second floor are not signaled. There are no public telephone booths appropriately located for people in wheelchairs. There are visual information systems for deaf people or for those who have hearing problems. There are restrooms in the boarding room on the second floor and in the arrival area for international flights on the first floor. These restrooms are wide and appropriate for people in wheelchairs. The toilets installed do not have supporting bars. The accessible restrooms are not signaled. The police control, migrations and customs areas are accessible and have wheelchairs for those passengers who need them. Two airlines operating in this airport have boarding chairs, but you must pay attention to these companies staff's performance, since they are not very well trained. The way from the airplanes until the luggage pick up room is also accessible, but the ramps have very steep slopes, so you must look for help. These routes are not signaled either. The way from the luggage rooms to the street and the parking lot are accessible and are supplied with a gentle slope. The airport administration has offered to comply with the accessibility rules left in a short term.

To board the helicopter from the International Airport Velasco Astete in Cusco, it is recommended to use the back door of the craft, which precisely has a ramp, very useful for people in wheelchairs. The flight takes around 25 minutes and from the window, you may see numerous archaeological places of the Inca era and the different micro-climates existing between the Cusco mountains and the rainforest ("ceja de selva) surrounding Machu Picchu. The helicopter lands in a small open area between the Urubamba River and the train. The place does not have infrastructure, just one area with a rustic ceiling where the passengers wait for. There is no sidewalk to take the passengers to the Aguas Calientes town, located around one kilometer away. You must walk next to the railroad line through a non-steady roadbed that in the narrowest part is 0.90 cm and in the widest up to three meters. Generally, there are people ready to help you with the luggage to receive a tip.
