MIAMI — Israel’s Tourism Ministry announced LATAM Airlines’ first route between Tel Aviv and Latin America that is expected to be launched on December 12. The three-times-a-week flight will be connecting Tel Aviv to Santiago, Chile, via São Paulo, Brazil.

Yariv Levin, Israel’s Minister of Tourism, said: “The launch of the direct route from Israel to Brazil and Chile is an important achievement. We believe that the new route will strengthen the cooperation between Israel and Latin America and increase the flow of tourists traveling between the two regions.”

The route was subject to regulatory approval before Levin announcement.

The 787 will transport 247 passengers on a Boeing 787 aircraft that seats 217 customers in Economy and 30 in Premium Business.

According to the carrier, the route was though to please their passenger demand. In 2017, LATAM Airlines inaugurated 13 new international routes.
