LAN launches speedy new connections to Rio from Australia and New Zealand

LAN Airlines has introduced speedy new connections from Santiago, Chile, to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for passengers arriving from Australia and New Zealand.

Flight LA800, LAN's daily service from Sydney and Auckland, arrives in Santiago at 11.40am.

It connects quickly with new flight LA 772, an Airbus A320 service departing Santiago at 12.25pm and arriving in Rio at 5.35pm – a journey of 4 hours, 10 minutes.

The return flight, LA 773, departs Rio at 6.25pm, arriving in Santiago at 10.05pm, a flight of 4 hours, 45 minutes.

This connects smoothly with LAN flight LA 801, which departs Santiago at 10.50 each night, bound for Auckland and Sydney.

"Brazil is the largest country in South America, and one of the fastest growing in terms of both business and leisure travel," said Patricio Aylwin, LAN's General Manager Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

"Rio de Janeiro is the best-known and most iconic city in Brazil, and one of the most exciting not only in South America, but in the world," said Mr Aylwin. "We are confident that this new connection will provide not only faster access to Rio, but the opportunity for visitors to experience even more of South America."

LAN operates more flights from Australia and New Zealand to South America than any other airline.

Within South America, LAN flies to almost 60 destinations in 10 countries, and continues to build its operations on the continent, one of the world's fastest growing travel markets.

To accommodate the continuing growth in visitor numbers, the LAN group has placed orders for in excess of 100 new aircraft, including new Airbus A320-family jets to help build frequency on existing routes in South America and to open new markets.

LAN is a member of the oneworld global airline alliance.
