LAN Airlines has announced that it will be operating a service to Paris from 2 September. Once the required authorisations have been granted, LAN will offer three weekly flights on the Santiago, Chile-Madrid-Paris route aboard modern Airbus A340 aircraft.
This new route will be the third destination serviced by LAN Airlines in Europe. Currently, the company provides service to Frankfurt and to Madrid and connects those cities to Latin America’s principal cities.
Subject to regulatory approval, LAN will fly every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from Santiago to Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris. Return flights will depart Paris on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
“By adding Paris to our portfolio of flight options, we are connecting France and Chile to the major cities in the region,” said Armando Valdivieso, LAN’s CEO, Passenger Division. “This new route will facilitate the further development of tourism and business travel. In turn, passengers travelling from Peru and Ecuador to Madrid will also be able to continue to Paris with LAN, connecting with the new onward flight,” said Mr Valdivieso.
The LAN Airbus A340 aircraft which will operate this route seat 263 passengers. These aircraft have the new Premium Business class luxuries including full flat seats that recline 180
