The LATAM Airlines Group announced three new international flights from Brasília, made possible by the reduction of ICMS (Tax on Circulation of Goods and Services) on aviation fuel, instituted by the Government of the Federal District.
The company will operate new flights in Brasilia to Santiago (Chile), Lima (Peru) and Asunción (Paraguay). The new operations should project even more connectivity at the airport of the Brazilian capital, which occupies strategic geographic position in South America.
The route will be operated from October 15, with Airbus A320 aircraft, accommodating 174 passengers in Economy class. On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, flight LA781 will depart from Brasília at 8:05 pm (local time) and will land in Santiago at 11:25 a.m. (local time). On the same days, flight LA780 will depart from Santiago at 12.55 local time and will land in Brasilia at 18:15 local time.
The route will be operated from November 14, with Airbus A320 aircraft, accommodating 174 passengers in Economy class. On Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, flight LA2471 will depart from Brasília at 8:30 am (local time) and will land in Lima at 11:06 am (local time). On the same days, flight LA2416 will depart from Lima at 06:06 (local time) and will land in Brasilia at 06:50 (local time).
