The LATAM team helped inaugurate TAM’s second route to Montevideo in Uruguay. Francisco Chiari, LATAM’s GM in Uruguay, who was present at the launch ceremony, said: “It is our pleasure to launch this brand new route, which will bring about significant improvements in the region’s connectivity.”
- TAM launched services on the 1,800-kilometre route from Rio de Janeiro (GIG) to Montevideo (MVD) on 15 November. The route, which was previously served by Pluna prior to its collapse in July, is now offered by the Brazilian carrier on daily basis and is operated using A320s. TAM already serves the Uruguayan capital from São Paulo Guarulhos, on which it increased from two to three weekly frequencies in the northern winter scheduling season.
