LATAM announces launch date for non-stop Santiago-Sydney service

Santiago, Chile, 3 July 2019 – LATAM Airlines Group announced today that tickets are now on sale for its non-stop flight from Santiago to Sydney, Australia, which it will operate with Boeing 787-9 aircraft starting 27 October 2019. 

LATAM will offer three non-stop flights per week between the two cities, while reducing the number of services between Santiago and Sydney with a stop-over in Auckland from seven to four weekly frequencies. With the new itinerary, LATAM will continue to offer a daily service between Chile’s capital and Australia’s largest city, while offering improved connections via its Santiago hub and to/from cities in Asia including Tokyo, Singapore, Seoul and Hong Kong. 

“This non-stop Santiago-Sydney flight will further improve the connectivity we offer between South America, Australia and Asia, as we continue to adapt our network to meet the needs of our passengers on both sides of the Pacific”, said Roberto Alvo, Chief Commercial Officer, LATAM Airlines Group.

The flight will also complement LATAM’s non-stop service between Santiago and Melbourne, which it launched in October 2017.  All LATAM flights serving Oceania are operated by state-of-the-art Boeing 787 aircraft.
