Cutting the ribbon at the launch of LATAM Airlines’ new domestic service between Cuzco and Iquitos are: Manuel van Oordt Fernandez, GM of LATAM Airlines in Peru; Marisol Acosta, Tourism Director, PROMPERÚ; and Carlos Moscoso, Mayor of Cuzco. The carrier will offer a three times weekly service on the Peruvian domestic link.
- LATAM Airlines added two new connections to its extensive route map this week, starting on 1 July with a 7,730-kilometre connection from Sao Paulo Guarulhos (GRU) to Boston (BOS). The oneworld member will operate a four times weekly service on the route between North and South America using its fleet of 767-300s. The second route launch for the airline took place the following day, with it starting a 1,093-kilometre Peruvian domestic sector between Cuzco (CUZ) and Iquitos (IQT). LATAM will offer a three times weekly service between the two cities, with it planning to use its fleet of 144-seat A319s on the route. Neither of the two routes launched by the airline this week will face direct competition. It should be noted that LATAM’s flights between Sao Paulo and Boston will be flown under its JJ flight code, while the intra-Peru service operates under the LA designation.
