LATAM Airlines Group has announced two new flights from its Lima hub – a new Caribbean destination, Montego Bay in Jamaica, and a direct service to Calama, Chile.
Starting July 1st, LATAM Airlines Peru will operate three weekly flights to Montego Bay, offering convenient connections with cities in Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay and Bolivia.
The route will be operated by Airbus A320 aircraft with capacity for 174 passengers, equivalent to a total of 52,600 seats per year.
The following day, July 2nd, LATAM will also commence three weekly non-stop flights from Lima to Calama in Chile, the gateway to San Pedro de Atacama, reducing the travel time between the two cities by four hours, 30 minutes.
“Next July, we will offer our passengers even greater choice with a new destination in the Caribbean as well as significantly shorter journey times between Lima and Calama, the gateway to San Pedro de Atacama,” said Enrique Cueto, chief executive of LATAM Airlines Group.
“As part of our commitment to offering unrivalled connectivity in Latin America, we continue to make it easier to explore the best that this region has to offer, with more destinations and flight options than any other airline group.”
Located on the north-east of Jamaica, Montego Bay is the island’s financial centre and the principal gateway to many of its resorts and tourist attractions.
Jamaica’s year-round tropical climate, white sand beaches, crystal-clear waters and rich cultural heritage draw visitors from around the globe.
