LATAM Airlines Group has opened a new lounge at Santiago de Chile’s Arturo Merino Benitez International airport, designed exclusively for international flights.

According to the airline the facility on the fourth floor of the new Terminal 2 is the largest lounge in South America, measuring over 4,000 sqm. The space replaces the former VIP lounge in Terminal 1 and includes various sustainable features such as the use of 80 per cent renewable energy for its operation, and interactive games with educational themes surrounding recycling and conservation.

The lounge will also offset its carbon footprint through ecosystem conservation projects in South America. Additionally the space will display a series of art sculptures by 21 emerging South American artists, which have been crafted with mostly recycled materials. Artists include Ximena Guzman from Chile, Sofia Donovan from Argentina and Percy Zorrilla from Peru.

LATAM also said it will renovate its other services which include lockers for hand luggage, sleeping areas, showers, buffet service and co-work areas.

Paulo Miranda, vice president of customers for LATAM Airlines Group, commented:

“Our decision making is always guided by our customers, and we continue to advance an experience where everyone can choose what is important for their trip. We have promoted changes and innovations in our new Lounge to create a space that highlights the best of our region and where there are options for everyone to enjoy their time as they see fit.”

“This represents another step in the group’s sustainability strategy, which we are convinced should be an integral aspect in all our areas. It must guide us and be at the center of what we do.”

Earlier this year the airline launched sustainable amenity kits for passengers travelling in its Premium Business cabins.

The lounge is available to passengers with the LATAM benefits programme in the Black Signature, Black and Platinum categories, for passengers flying in the Premium Business or Premium Economy cabins, as well as those from alliance partners travelling on international flights or making stopovers in Chile.
