LATAM Airlines Group plans to resume flights from Sao Paulo to four international destinations in June, and said that it would offer customers “more flexible options, lower fares and increased sanitation measures”.
From next month the group will relaunch flights from Sao Paulo to Frankfurt, London, Madrid and Miami, as well as connections from Santiago to both Miami and Sao Paulo to allow Chile-based travellers to reach the UK, Germany and Spain.
LATAM intends to increase capacity from the current 5 per cent to 9 per cent in June, and further to 18 per cent in July.
LATAM Airlines Brazil will operate 74 domestic routes next month, while LATAM Airlines Chile will offer 12 domestic routes. The group’s Ecuadorian affiliate is also working to resume flights in June, while its Colombian and Peruvian affiliates expect to start flying again in July.
The group also said that “Given the new economic environment, the LATAM group [has] further reduced costs and increased efficiency in order to offer tickets that on average can be up to 20 per cent more affordable”.
Ticket flexibility has been enhanced, with the ability to change flights dates with a fare difference on all tickets booked between May 21 and July 31 – more information on this can be seen here.
Meanwhile the group has implemented a number of hygiene measures on its flights, more information on which can be seen here.
LATAM recently left the Oneworld alliance, having signed a trans-American joint venture agreement with Delta which will operate across the carriers’ route networks between North and South America.
