Beginning 1 July 2010, LAN Peru - an affiliate of LAN Airlines - will initiate operations to Peru out of San Francisco. The airline will offer four flights per week to Lima on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

 LAN Perus new service from San Francisco to Lima offers passengers connecting service to multiple destinations in the region including Sao Paulo, Brazil; Buenos Aires, Argentina; and Santiago, Chile.

The announcement of LAN Perus new service between San Francisco and Lima opens the gateway for an unprecedented expansion of economic and cultural ties between North and South America, said San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom. The additional passengers and commerce that this new service brings to the Bay Area is extremely positive news during these challenging economic times.

San Francisco will become the fourth US gateway for LAN Airlines and its affiliates, in addition to Los Angeles, New York and Miami.

The new route will continue to support the growth of tourism to the region, considering that it will be the only nonstop flight connecting San Francisco with South America, offering passengers more options for travel to unique destinations like Machu Picchu, Patagonia, as well as Easter Island and Iguazu Falls.

The airline will service this route on modern Boeing 767-300s with long-haul reach and a capacity for 221passengers. These aircraft offer LANs Premium Business cabin that includes full flat, 180 reclining seats with a completely horizontal sleeping option that only a select group of airlines in the world offer, in addition to a renovated Economy Class.

In both classes of services, passengers have access to a modern entertainment system that offers one of the most diverse audio and video on-demand programming in the world.
