TAM gets Montevideo green light

TAM has received official authorization from the International
Relations Department of ANAC to
start the regular operation of a daily frequency non-stop between Brazil
and Uruguay.Thus, TAM will expand its offerings in South America, aligned
with its strategy to develop a more complete and diversified network for
its passengers.

TAM will start to operate the flight to Montevideo within six months.
All measures required to start this frequency are already being taken. The
start date and timetable for this flight will be announced at a later date.
  The Company already operates two frequencies per day to Santiago,
Chile, and has 56 weekly flights to Buenos Aires, Argentina. In April, TAM
received official authorization from ANAC to start regular operation of a
daily frequency to Caracas, Venezuela. Through TAM Mercosur, it also serves
Asuncion and Ciudad del Este (Paraguay), Cordoba (Argentina), Montevideo
(Uruguay), and Santa Cruz de la Sierra and Cochabamba (Bolivia).
  In the international market, TAM serves Paris (three flights per day,
one of which departs from Rio de Janeiro, two from Sao Paulo, connecting in
Recife once a week), London and Milan (daily frequencies). In addition, the
Company operates five daily flights to the United States—two to New York
and three to Miami—one of which departs from Fortaleza, with stops in
Belem and Manaus.
  TAM’s international segment strategy is to selectively grow in
profitable markets, increasing flights to countries already operated by the
company and launch other potential destinations to attract leisure and
business passengers.
