Are there flights from the Salar de Uyuni to Arequipa (Peru) ? Or any recommended airport nearby Arequipa, you can suggest me ?

The nearest airport, UYU, is a domestic airport; you will need to connect at La Paz (LPB). Amaszonas and TAM offer UYU-LPB services.

Arequipa, for its part, has limited international service, and you would need to connect on a LAN or TACA flight through Lima (LIM).

Thanks. I checked Amaszonas, and I noticed the price for the flight La Paz-Uyuni is always the same regardless how much in advance you reserve it: 145 euros. For example, there is a flight tomorrow for 145 euros as well. Does this mean I can buy the ticket the day before, once I'm there ? – Patrick Mar 7 '13 at 22:21
@Patrick I can't say for certain; I haven't been in that part of the world in 6 years. If it's the same price, however, why not just make the reservation now and have peace of mind? – choster Mar 7 '13 at 22:26
Because I would like to keep my travel as much flexible as I can. If I can reserve the flight 1 or 2 days before it would be great – Patrick Mar 7 '13 at 22:29
It really depends. Just two months ago, I was there and flights were booked going for a few days ahead but I managed to book a next day return flight from Uyuni. – Itai Mar 8 '13 at 1:05
