Direct Sydney-Santiago flights reinstated

Good news for flyers who hate layovers en route to their final destination.

LATAM Airlines has just announced the re-introduction of direct flights from Sydney to Santiago four times per week, starting from October 28.

This cuts out the tiresome stop in Auckland.

LATAM now offers daily direct flights between Australia and Latin America, departing from both Sydney and Melbourne.

In September last year LATAM re-started Melbourne-Santiago direct flights three times weekly.

The addition of the Sydney-Santiago direct flights completes the schedule.

LATAM originally launched direct flights between Sydney and Santiago in 2019 but paused the services due to 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.

The 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 services will have a flight time of 12 hours and 50 minutes.

All LATAM Airlines flights between Australia and Chile are operated on Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft featuring economy, premium economy and premium business cabins

“We’re thrilled to restart our direct flights from Sydney to Santiago to meet the demand of travellers in Australia," said Chris Ellis, LATAM Airlines manager for Oceania.

"This significant milestone for LATAM Airlines brings Latin America closer to Australians, whether they're flying for business, leisure, or cultural exploration.

"From October, passengers can choose from daily direct services between Australia and Chile, including four direct flights from Sydney and three from Melbourne every week, in addition to our flights via Auckland. That’s a wealth of options for our customers.”

From Santiago, LATAM offers connections to over 144 destinations.
