LATAM Airlines adds new international destinations

LATAM Airlines Group (LATAM) has announced a new non-stop service between Santiago, Chile and Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, with three weekly flights starting 28 March 2017.

LATAM has also started the first of two weekly direct flights between Santiago and Orlando (United States), which will operate on a seasonal basis until 1 March 2017.  LATAM Airlines Peru has 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.”

From 28 March 2017, LATAM Airlines Chile flight LA864 will depart Santiago at 09:00 local time on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, arriving in Santa Cruz (Viru International Airport) at 11:00 (local time) the same day, with a journey time of three hours.  The return flight, LA865, will depart Santa Cruz at 12:00 local time on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, arriving in Santiago at 16:00 the same day (local time), with a journey time of three hours.

The service will be operated by Airbus A320 aircraft.
