LAN Airlines, together with oneworld alliance partners, has introduced its first fares from Hong Kong to South America, priced from just HK$ $13,658.

LAN is now offering Economy Class, Premium Business Class or oneworld partner fares from Hong Kong to South America via Sydney, Australia or Auckland, New Zealand.

Passengers can fly with Cathay Pacific to Auckland, then connect smoothly with LAN’s nonstop daily flight to Santiago, Chile.

Alternatively, fly with Qantas or Cathay to Sydney, from where travellers can connect with a nonstop Qantas flight to Buenos Aires, Argentina, three times weekly, or a daily one-stop flight to Santiago with LAN.

The LAN family of airlines also offers a wide range of services beyond Santiago and Buenos Aires to destinations throughout the South American continent, using either sector fares or the popular LAN South America AirPass.

  “LAN has been named Best Airline in South America for the past two years in the global SkyTrax Awards for airline excellence,” said Rodrigo Contreras, LAN’s General Manager Australia, New Zealand and Asia. “We have also recently upgraded our long haul product from Australia and New Zealand to South America, offering both a brand new Premium Business Class cabin, featuring flat bed seats, and a fresh Economy Class incorporating our new video on demand entertainment system in every seat.”

The introduction of LAN fares from Hong Kong follows the airline’s introduction earlier this year of fares from Seoul, South Korea, to South America, flying via Australia, New Zealand or the USA.

Passengers can fly from Seoul to Auckland with Korean Airlines, then connect with nonstop LAN flights to Santiago, or to Sydney on either Korean Airlines or Asiana, then connect with nonstop Qantas flights to Buenos Aires.

LAN also codeshares on Korean Air flights from Seoul to Los Angeles, from where nonstop LAN connections are available to Santiago, and beyond to other key South American locations.
