Delta Air Lines begun operating daily flights from Atlanta (Georgia, USA) to Buenos Aires (Argentina) and Santiago (Chile) after the US Department of Transportation greenlit a partnership between the airline and Latin American carrier LATAM.
With this new schedule, Delta is now offering more than 2,300 seats weekly between Atlanta and Santiago and over 1,600 between Atlanta and Buenos Aires.
“The increase to daily flights from Atlanta to Argentina and Chile makes it easier for friends and family to reunite for the upcoming holiday festivities and for leisure and business travelers to discover all that these two important cities in South America have to offer,” said Rodrigo Bértola, Delta Director of Sales for South America.
Atlanta-based carrier looks set to spread its wings throughout South America, thanks largely to LATAM’s extensive operations in the region. The Latin American airline flies to almost 130 destinations in the Americas, with 116 in South America alone.
The joint venture paves the way for Delta to serve more than 300 destinations between the US/Canada and South America (Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay).
“The partners are working closely to connect the Americas to the world like never before,” Delta stated in a press release.
