LATAM Airlines to increase flights to Europe; London remains on hold

LATAM Airlines has outlined plans to increase flights to Europe over the coming months.

The carrier said that ‘following the recent lift on restrictions within international travel between Europe and Brazil, the LATAM group will advance the return of several direct services between October and December in 2021’.

From November 2021, LATAM will start 3-weekly flights between São Paulo and Barcelona and the airline will also operate 3-weekly flights to Milan from December 2021.

Frequency increases include a fourth-weekly flight being added on both of the carrier’s routes from Sao Paulo to Madrid and Paris from October 2021 while from November 2021, LATAM’s São Paulo-Lisbon route will move from 4 to 6-weekly flights per week. Flights to German financial hub of Frankfurt will also increase from 3 to 5-weekly flights from November 2021.

However, LATAM has not published any plans to resume services between São Paulo and London Heathrow, stating simply that the route ‘remains on hold’.

Additionally, the group expects to offer ‘more than 50% of its offer worldwide’ during the fourth quarter of this year.

Thibaud Morand, Managing Director, Europe, LATAM Group, said:

We have seen a steady growth in the interest of Europeans and Brazilians for international travel, mainly between countries open to those who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. That is why we are constantly evaluating the possibility of resuming or expanding our operations from the European markets where we operate.
