Among those cutting the ribbon in Tucuman on the day of LATAM Airlines’ inaugural service from Santiago were: Walter Andres Jorge, Regional Manager of LATAM Airlines (second-left); Luis Palma Cané, Internal Sales Manager, LATAM Airlines (fourth-left); and Sebastian Giobellina, President of Ente Tucumán Tourism (third-right), along with members of the Tucuman Bureau. LATAM Airlines will link Santiago to Tucuman three times weekly on its fleet of A320s.
- LATAM Airlines commenced operations between Santiago (SCL) and Tucuman (TUC) on 2 October. The carrier will offer three weekly flights on the 909-kilometre route between the Chilean and Argentinian cities, an airport pair that is currently not offered by any other airline directly. With this launch, LATAM now offers eight routes to Argentina from the Chilean capital, while from Tucuman, Santiago becomes the third route to be flown, with LATAM already linking the city to Lima and Buenos Aires Aeroparque when referring to OAG schedules.
