Post available in: English

LATAM Airlines is delighted to announce the reintroduction of direct flights from Sydney to Santiago four times weekly, commencing on 28 October 2024. This milestone significantly enhances connectivity, offering travellers daily direct routes between Australia and Latin America. LATAM’s commitment to reconnecting continents is evident in its expansion of services. In September 2023, LATAM Airlines restarted Melbourne – Santiago direct flights thrice weekly. With the addition of the four weekly direct flights from Sydney to Santiago, LATAM is now pleased to offer daily direct flights between Australia and Latin America starting in October.LATAM launched direct flights between Sydney and Santiago in 2019 and paused the services due to the pandemic. Following the pandemic, LATAM resumed operations from Sydney to Santiago via Auckland in March 2022 with three weekly services and quickly scaled up to daily flights by December 2022. This move to reintroduce direct flights will enable up to 1,200 passengers per week to enjoy the convenience of travelling directly from Sydney to Latin America in under 13 hours. The direct Sydney – Santiago services with a flight time of 12 hours and 50 minutes will operate on the following schedule.

All LATAM Airlines flights between Australia and Chile are operated on Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. LATAM will have 3,900 seats per week on flights between Australia and Latin America. That’s over 200,000 seats a year open to business and leisure travellers.

Chris Ellis, LATAM Airlines Country Manager for Oceania, shared his excitement about the launch: “We are delighted to announce the resumption of our direct services from Sydney to Santiago, with flights operating four times a week starting October 28th. This marks a significant milestone for LATAM Airlines as we
strive to bridge the gap between Australia and Latin America, catering to the diverse needs of travellers in both regions. Whether for business, leisure, or cultural exploration, we are committed to bringing the vibrant spirit of Latin America closer to Australian travellers and fostering meaningful connections across continents.”

Chris Ellis stated, “As the go-to airline for travel to and from Latin America, we’re proud to offer connections to over 144 destinations in our vast
network. Our direct flights provide a seamless and efficient travel experience, inviting travellers to discover Latin America’s immense beauty and diversity.
Exploring the region has become even more accessible, and we’re excited to welcome you aboard.
