LAN Airlines is now offering travellers a new connection from Santiago, Chile, to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for passengers arriving from Australia and New Zealand.

Flight LA800, LAN’s daily service from Sydney and Auckland, arrives in Santiago at 11.40am. It now connects with new flight LA 772, an Airbus A320 service departing Santiago at 12.25 and arriving in Rio at 17:35 – a journey of 4 hours, 10 minutes.

The return flight, LA 773, departs Rio at 18:25, arriving in Santiago at 22:05 a flight of 4 hours, 45 minutes. This connects smoothly with LAN flight LA 801, which departs Santiago at 22:50 each night, bound for Auckland and Sydney.

“Brazil is the largest country in South America, and one of the fastest growing in terms of both business and leisure travel,” said Patricio Aylwin, LAN’s General Manager Australia, New Zealand and Asia. “Rio de Janeiro is the best-known and most iconic city in Brazil, and one of the most exciting not only in South America, but in the world, we are confident that this new connection will provide not only faster access to Rio, but the opportunity for visitors to experience even more of South America.”

Within South America, LAN flies to almost 60 destinations in 10 countries, and continues to build its operations on the continent, one of the world’s fastest growing travel markets.
