LATAM Airlines, Latin America’s largest carrier, has a history marked by both pioneering achievements and strategic expansions. It began in two parts: in 1929 as LAN (Chile), and in 1961 as TAM (Taxi Aéreo Marilia), started by 5 charter pilots. LAN & TAM merged in 2012, forming the largest airline group in Latin America, headquartered in Santiago, Chile.
