MIAMI – LATAM Airlines announced today that two of its non-stop flights to Sao Paulo, Brazil will be operated in the Airbus A350XWB. The departures will begin from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) on September 30, 2017, and from Orlando’s International Airport (MCO), on November 15, 2017.

These routes, which serve 4,000 and 5,000 miles respectively, were selected for the aircraft replacement to “maintain the fulfillment of LATAM Airlines’ vision for sustainability”.

The A350’s design has successfully reduced the weight of the aircraft itself, allowing up to a 25% reduction in fuel requirements, maximizing operational efficiency and minimizing any impacts on the environment.

The new LATAM interior design standards were visually inspired by the colors and textures of South America along with other natural tones.

The Amazonian wood is found in several elements of the aircraft’s interior, and the flooring reflects the textures of fabrics and colors from the region’s landscape, including inspiration from the boardwalk of Ipanema in its layout.

Panoramic windows throughout the cabin are 24% larger than a similar aircraft of the current generation. The A350-XWB offers Business Class seats in the twin-aisle aircraft, and full LED lighting.
