London-Santiago de Chile connected with new direct flight

Published on : Friday, January 6, 2017

planeThe new direct flight London-Santiago de Chile has been inaugurated on January 4. This is expected to increase the number of visitors from Britain and Europe, said Chilean authorities when they received the British Airways flight at the Chilean capital airport.

 

The London direct flight was the fourth such link with European cities including, Madrid, Paris and Milano.

 

“Last year 46,000 British tourists arrived in Chile and with the new direct link we expect that number to increase by 19%, including passengers from Europe, which is strategic for Chile”, said Javiera Montes, the Tourism Under Secretary.

 

Nicolas Claude, New Pudahuel CEO pointed out that the arrival of the British Airways was relevant for Chile, tourism and the economy, since it confirms the potential of the Santiago airport which last year received 19 million passengers.

 

British Airways has weekly flights from Heathrow to Arturo Merino Benítez in Santiago, and will be operating one of its most modern aircraft of the fleet, Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner with a 216 capacity.
