Due to travel restrictions and the historic drop in demand due to Covid-19, the Latam Airlines Group and its subsidiaries have announced that they will continue to reduce their passenger operations by 95% during May 2020.
“A month and a half since several industry players alerted us to the biggest crisis that the sector has suffered, today we can see that the impacts are more profound and that they will be more lasting than initially predicted”, said the CEO of Grupo Latam Airlines, Roberto Alvo. “In the face of this adverse scenario, it is inevitable that the Group and its subsidiaries will resize their size and the way they operate,” said Alvo.
With regard to domestic routes, Latam informs that in Brazil and Chile, operations will continue to be reduced during May, with the aim of maintaining minimal connectivity in these countries. To the extent that operating permits exist and demand is justified, the Latam Airlines Group and its subsidiaries will evaluate the resumption of flights in the countries where they are present.
On international routes, during the month of May, the Latam Airlines Group and Latam Airlines Brasil expect to operate six weekly flights between Santiago and Miami and three flights between São Paulo and Miami, respectively. Changes to itineraries for May will be processed from the next week and customers will be notified in due course.
