The airport's usual operating hours are between 7 am and 11 pm.
"We will extend the operating hours up to 4 am or 5 am today and on Sunday due to demand," Abdul Halim said, adding that the airport was prepared to operate round the clock if need be.
The airport will become busy over the next few days with aircraft flying in for participation in Lima 2011 besides the scheduled flights.
Abdul Halim said additional staff have been brought in from other airports to help out, particularly in the security division.
This 11th edition of Lima will see the participation of more than 400 companies from 56 countries.
