With three flights per week starting on August 15, the aircraft selected for the operation is the 144-seat Airbus A319, which will represent a total of 45,000 seats per year on the route.
“As a part of our effort to offer an unprecedented connectivity in Latin America and to reinforce our commitment with the development of sustainable tourism in the region, we are happy to announce that starting in August we will offer our first international non stop flight to Cusco, Peru’s Imperial City,” said Enrique Cueto, CEO of LATAM Airlines.

LATAM Airlines is the first airline to fly between Israel and Latin America for 6 years
Starting in December, Latam will fly three times a week from Santiago to Tel Aviv via Sao Paulo, ending a 6-year Hiatus. Latin America's largest airline will begin direct operations between the two cities to the joy of frequent flyers. Since El Al Airlines terminated business, passengers have had to take flights which have stopovers in Europe or Africa, increasing the total travel time to at least 18 hours. “This is a unique service for passengers across much of Latin America,” said Jerome Cadier, CEO of Latam Airlines Brazil, which was formed in the 2012 merger of Chile’s LAN and Brazil’s TAM. "No other airline connects Latin America with Israel."
The stop via Sao Paulo on this new route may be influenced by Brazil’s 120,000-strong Jewish community as well as pilgrims from the world’s second-largest Christian population. The Sao Paulo-Tel Aviv leg will take 13 hours, with the return trip lasting 15 hours. Airfares will start at $999. Due to the increased efficiency of planes, this journey is an hour and a half faster than it was when El Al flew the route 6 years ago, however, this may also be beacuse, according to tourism industry sources, the Israeli carrier didn’t fly over certain African countries.
