AA by a LONG shot. Remember that Mexico and Central America, geographically, are part of NORTH America. AA also offers more daily seats to South American than anyone else from the USA.

AA is the leader from the US to Latin America, with a strong presence throughout the region. Routes out of AA's MIA hub extend to just about every city in Latin America and many, many islands in the caribbean, plus AA has a very large operation in San Juan.

CO is a strong second, with service to many cities in Mexico (a lot of ERJ service out of IAH) and is especially strong in Central America, but they still have a way to go on the South American continental and cannot match AA's coverage of the caribbean.

US is increasing its presence in the region with its just announced plans for a latin american gateway out of FLL, in addition to existing services from CLT and PHL, and DL is showing more and more interest in the region with additional flights from ATL to Sao Paolo and the intention of re-starting service to Buenos Aires and hopefully Rio.

For flights from Europe, Iberia is the undisputed leader. They used to have a transit hub in Miami with four A319´s based there, but with the new US immigration and transit laws IB decided to close the hub and have more direct flights out of Spain instead.

IBs had no routes to South America, so it doesnt really count. They only flew to small central american countries that didnt have enough traffic to justify a nonstop flight from MAD. To S. America IB has always flown directly from Spain.

Well AA, because they dragged everything Braniff and Eastern created. So they had a bug start up, and then continued on expanding. That's why in the majority of airports in Latin America, AA has the best facilities, counters, gates, lounges, etc.

CO and UA started from scratch. I remember back in early 90's in many of CO's airport offices, they had the wheelchair they used for pax as a desk chair. They were brutal !

AA has the most flights and the most passengers served to South America of all US-based carriers.


Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

As said, AA is the leader in flights to South America from the United States.

From Europe, as Levent said, IB is the one who leads the parade. Ex-colonies can certainly end up in plenty of interesting routings. The aforementioned company serves 10 different cities in the continent with direct flights from MAD.

The following companies are Air France, which flies to 6 destinations directly from CDG, and TAP Air Portugal with their extensive network to Brasil and flights to CCS.

And obviously, let us not forget the 2 largest So. American based carriers:

Varig and LAN.

Who would be the third largest in So. Am.?

The third largest South American would probably be TACA or TAM?

TACA has a large presence, in Central America, but their South American branch, TACA Peru, is cosiderably smaller.

In terms of size, TAM is up there undoubtlessly. But they are a mainly domestic carrier with intercontinental services only to MIA and CDG, so in terms of passengers carried from outside to South America they are definitely not the leaders.

The third one would probably be Aerolineas Argentinas, and then Avianca.
