Tickets are now on sale for LATAM’s long-awaited non-stop flights from Santiago to Sydney!

The flights, which will operate with Boeing 787-9 aircraft starting 27 October 2019, will run three times per week between the two cities.

To make way for the new flights, the airline will reduce the number of services between Santiago and Sydney with a stop-over in Auckland from seven to four weekly frequencies.

With the new itinerary, LATAM will continue to offer a daily service between Chile’s capital and Australia’s largest city, while offering improved connections via its Santiago hub and to/from cities in Asia including Tokyo, Singapore, Seoul and Hong Kong.


“This non-stop Santiago-Sydney flight will further improve the connectivity we offer between South America, Australia and Asia, as we continue to adapt our network to meet the needs of our passengers on both sides of the Pacific,” said Roberto Alvo, Chief Commercial Officer, LATAM Airlines Group.

The flight will be in addition to  LATAM’s non-stop service between Santiago and Melbourne, which it launched in October 2017. All LATAM flights serving Oceania are operated by state-of-the-art Boeing 787 aircraft.
