We inform that from February 13, 2019 the sale of regular seats in Economy, for all international flights operating from February 17, will be implemented. This implementation corresponds to that introduced by the new business model on international routes of October 20, 2018.

We remind you that routes between Santiago (SCL) - Easter Island (IPC) and Santiago (SCL) - Papeete (PPT), as well as PASS/Fidelidade premium tickets, maintains seat marking at no cost.

The issues since October 20, 2018, in these brands, have been informing in the purchase flow and CUV that the seat is subject to collection, even if it is still possible to mark free of charge on the website.

  • On flights with stopovers, where there is a change of equipment or in the configuration of the aircraft in any segment, the sale of seats is not enabled. Also in these cases, seats can only be provided randomly at check-in.
  • Any remission per change implies charging a new fee. If the passenger needs to keep his seat reservation, it is recommended to reserve at the rate that allows it free (PLUS or TOP). For historical remissions, the old fare families that allow seat reservations should be maintained.
