To strengthen connectivity with its international markets, LATAM Airlines Group has begun selling tickets for its Santiago–São Paulo–Milan service to be operated by LAN using its modern fleet of Boeing 787s.
Tickets are available for purchase through all LAN and TAM sales channels.
Therefore, as of November 4th, LAN will operate seven weekly flights from the Santiago International Airport, via São Paulo, to the Milan-Malpensa Airport.
The route operated between São Paulo and Milan is currently being operated using Airbus A330s.
Beginning in November, the route will be operated by LAN using Boeing 787 airliners.
Benefits of using the Boeing 787 family includes less fuel consumption as compared to similar aircraft, and reducing environmental impact and CO2 emission by 20 per cent.
“This new flight will allow us to connect Santiago and Milan, via São Paulo, using our new Boeing 787s, which offers 13 per cent more seats and an improved executive class, with cutting-edge in-flight entertainment, thereby allowing us to connect more people between South America and Europe.
“With this we reinforce our commitment to improving travel experience, reducing the environmental impact of our operations and serving as a bridge between South America and the rest of the world,” said Roberto Alvo, chief executive of international business and alliances at LATAM Airlines Group.
LATAM Airlines Group currently operates five routes between South America and Europe: Madrid, Milan, London, Paris, and Frankfurt.
As of October 1st this year, the carrier will begin operations to Barcelona, from São Paulo.
