LAN Airlines expanded the reach of its international network today by announcing new service to Santiago, Chile, from Toronto, Canada starting September 3, 2008. Once in Santiago, passengers have access to flights to multiple destinations within Chile and Argentina. The company will offer five flights per week to Santiago via New York City on its modern fleet of Boeing 767 aircraft.

LAN flights will operate from Toronto to Santiago on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays providing reliable alternatives for passengers traveling to the South America region. Passengers wishing to travel between Toronto and New York now have another carrier choice for this popular route. In New York, passengers can also connect to Lima, Peru with LAN Airlines.

“LAN has had its sights set on Canada for quite some time,” said Pablo Yunis, vice president, North/Central America, LAN Airlines. “Toronto is a very important market for travel to South America, both for leisure and business travel, as well as for travelers who are returning to their homelands. Our goal is to connect South America with one of the most important cultural and financial centers in North America and showcase our signature service to Canadian travelers.”

LAN has long been hailed as the premier airline in South America. Following an investment of $100 million, the airline boasts a modern fleet of Boeing 767 aircraft for international flights and continues to set the standard for travel to the region. LAN Premium Business Class offers full-flat seats to South America, a wine list selected by Latin America’s only master sommelier and meals prepared by the region’s leading chefs. The entire cabin is outfitted with an on-demand in-flight entertainment system that features music, movies and games. Economy Class passengers can also enjoy new seats which recline at a greater angle and a seat cushion that slides forward to increase comfort.

“We are committed to every one of our passengers,” said Pablo Yunis. “It is our desire to tend to them with a warm and positive disposition in a welcoming environment while providing the excellence in customer service and the best travel experience.”

The Toronto-New York-Santiago route will operate from Terminal 3 at Pearson International Airport.
