LATAM Airlines Welcomes 2017 With New International Destinations

Published on : Thursday, January 5, 2017

Latam AirlineLATAM Airlines Group (LATAM) today announced a new non-stop service between Santiago, Chile and Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, with three weekly flights starting 28 March 2017.  The new service is the 19th route that the airline group has published and/or launched since January 2016 as part of the continued strengthening of its international network.

 

Today also marked the first of LATAM’s two weekly direct flights between Santiago and Orlando (United States), which will operate on a seasonal basis until 1 March 2017.  Yesterday, LATAM Airlines Peru inaugurated its non-stop service between Lima (Peru) and Cartagena de Indias (Colombia), offering four flights per week.

 

“With this new Santiago-Santa Cruz flight, LATAM will become the only airline group to operate direct services between the two cities, offering greater convenience and faster journey times than any other carrier,” said Enrique Cueto, CEO, LATAM Airlines Group. “We will continue exploring opportunities to develop new LATAM destinations and improve connectivity in the region.  The past year is proof of this commitment, with the introduction of 19 new routes including Lima-Washington D.C. and São Paulo-Johannesburg, LATAM’s first flight to Africa.”

 

In 2016, LATAM Airlines Group and its affiliates launched a number of unprecedented routes including São Paulo-Johannesburg (the only flight between South America and Africa operated by a Latin American airline) and Santiago-Puerto Natales, Chile (widening access and significantly reducing journey times to the world-famous Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia).  It also recently announced a flight between Santiago and Melbourne, which will become the longest non-stop route in LATAM’s history when it begins operations in October 2017.
