Grupo Latam has just released news related to its international operations. The first of them, already advanced by the company itself, is the beginning of sales of tickets for the route between São Paulo and Boston, which will be operated four times a week, starting in July 2018. In addition, Latam Brasil will expand its connectivity in the Southern Cone by announcing two new routes to Argentina: to Mendoza, as of March 2018, and Tucumán, from June. Both will be operated three times a week and tickets are now on sale.
In a statement, Latam reports that the new flight to Boston follows the strategy of investing in sustainable markets with connectivity to and from various regions of South America. The city is the 8th destination in North America, after Cancún, Ciudad de Mexico, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Orlando and Washington. In addition to Boston, the group recently announced three other unpublished international destinations: Rome, Lisbon and Tel Aviv.
“Latam is the only airline in Latin America that offers a network with such a wide range of destinations and itineraries. This strategic expansion is possible because we remain attentive to all opportunities for sustainable routes, especially at our Guarulhos hub, which connects the continent to the rest of the world, “said Jerome Cadier, CEO of Latam Airlines Brazil.
