LATAM restarts direct flights between Melbourne and Santiago

South American carrier LATAM Airlines has resumed flights between Santiago in Chile and Melbourne, Australia, following a pause of almost three and a half years due to the Covid pandemic.

As of this week, LATAM will offer three direct flights per week between Melbourne and Santiago, using Boeing 787-9 aircraft, allowing up to 900 passengers a week to travel to South America in under 13 hours.

LATAM resumed services to Australia in March 2022, with Sydney via Auckland to Santiago flights operating three times a week.

Chris Ellis, LATAM country manager for Oceania, said: “With the support of the Victorian Government and Melbourne Airport, we are able to meet the high demand for travel to South America.

"With our return to Melbourne Airport, we now have a total of 10 weekly flights connecting Australia and South America.”

LATAM is the leading airline in South America, serving over 144 destinations.

LATAM is South America’s largest airline and we’re incredibly proud to welcome them back to Melbourne,” said Lorie Argus, chief executive of Melbourne Airport.
