Latam Airlines

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. The merger marked an expansion of destinations worldwide, but LATAM entered Chapter 11 bankruptcy in May 2020, emerging a changed (and leaner) operation.

LATAM Airlines is ranked as a 4 star airline (ratings by Skytrax).
