TAM to move into Heathrow T3

7 Apr 2015 by GrahamSmith

TAM Airlines is moving its London Heathrow base from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 next month.

On May 27, the South American carrier will become the 37th airline to operate out of T3.

From that date, TAM passengers will check-in at Zone E using desks E2 38-43. The check-in desk position will change at the end of August.

The T3 move will allow the airline's business class passengers to access the lounge of its Oneworld partner British Airways.

Martin Modarelli, LATAM's commercial director for UK & Northern Europe, said: "We are delighted to announce our move to Heathrow's Terminal 3 on May 27 and are working hard to ensure a smooth transition between terminals for both our passengers and the travel trade.

"The new terminal will offer our passengers a great variety of shopping and dining options, as well as ensuring speedy connections and shorter distances between gates, all of which we hope will enhance the overall travel experience."

Towards the end of last year, TAM began rolling-out a Premium Business class on its flights to South American and the Caribbean from Europe and the US (see news, November 13).
