LATAM to launch direct Santiago-Quito flights

LATAM Airlines Group is to launch non-stop flights between Santiago and Quito in April 2019 – the only direct services on this route.
The carrier will operate an Airbus A320neo aircraft four times a week between the two Latin American cities, reducing transit time by more than two-and-a-half hours.
LATAM noted that the route will complement its existing daily non-stop service between Santiago and Guayaquil and also pointed out that it will be the first carrier to operate the A320neo in Ecuador when the new Quito flights commence next year.
Chief executive Enrique Cueto said that the Group is committed to improving connectivity in Latin America, adding: “Over the past three years, we have launched an historic 67 routes, further strengthening our unrivalled network in the region and bringing South America closer to the world.”
So far this year, LATAM has inaugurated flights to Costa Rica, Boston, Las Vegas, Rome and Lisbon; furthermore, it will begin flying to Tel Aviv in December and will add Munich to its network for the first time in 2019.
