LATAM flies daily from Sydney to Santiago

Aussies keen to soak up the wild beauty of South America now have even more opportunities to do so thanks to daily flights to Santiago.

Chilean airline, LATAM increased services from Sydney via Auckland to Santiago to a daily frequency this week.

Earlier this year, LATAM Airlines recommenced thrice weekly flights from Sydney, following a two-year pandemic halt.

Since then, an increase in demand for flights to Santiago – the gateway to LATAM’s network of more than 120 destinations in Latin America and 144 destinations worldwide – has seen the airline boost to daily services.

Chris Ellis, Country Manager Oceania for LATAM airlines said the airline is excited to meet the demand for daily flights to Santiago.

“We know that there is huge interest in travelling to South America and we are happy to open the opportunity for more and more travellers to experience the wonders this part of the world has to offer,” he said.

Summary: Experience Chile

LATAM is the only airline operating daily flights between Australia/New Zealand and South America, making it the ideal carrier to explore Latin America.

From adventure to luxury travel, Latin America with all of its rich culture, food, wine and unparalleled natural scenery has something for everyone.

Although LATAM withdrew from the oneworld Alliance in 2020, the Chilean airline’s strategic alliance with Delta Air Lines holds strong, so that’s worth keeping in mind if you collect SkyMiles.

    Great article! Just wondering if LATAM has upgraded the plane to the new configuration or still operating 2-2-2 seats in business class?
