LATAM recently announced that it has decided to bring forward the return of several direct services from South America to Europe. The carrier said the decision follows a recent lifting of restrictions on international travel from Brazil.
The airline decided to expand the frequency of the recently re-established direct services to São Paulo (Guarulhos) from Madrid and Paris as a direct result of the progress in administration of Covid-19 vaccinations in Europe. Increasing from three to four flights per week in October, direct flights to São Paulo (Guarulhos) from Barcelona will follow in November with three services weekly.
In the same month LATAM will also increase frequencies from Lisbon and Frankfurt to six and four direct flights, respectively, and from December the route between Milan and São Paulo (Guarulhos) will resume. Thibaud Morand, Managing Director, Europe, LATAM said in a statement that the airline has seen a steady growth in the interest of Europeans and Brazilians for international travel, mainly between countries open to those who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. He mentioned that the career is constantly evaluating the possibility of resuming or expanding operations from the European markets.
