Hi!

I have a question regarding the operations of LAN and TACA. Both airlines not only operate in their homecountry any more (Chile and Costa Rica), but throughout Latin America (LAN as LAN Peru and LAN Argentina and TACA with flights e.g. from CCS to LIM). Now my question is: On these flights operated under LAN or TACA-flightnumbers but outside their homecountries who is actually the operating carrier of these flights. Is it still LAN Chile and TACA as a Costa Rican company, or are these flights operated by subsidiaries legally registered in the other countries?

Thank you for your help!

Cheers, Mike

As for LAN:

Domestic operations in Chile are operated by LAN Express, IATA code LA
Flights are operated with CC (Chile) registered planes
Domestic operations in Argentina are operated by LAN Argentina, IATA 4M
Flights are operated with LV (Argentina) registered planes
Domestic operations in Peru are operated by LAN Peru, IATA is LP
Flights are operated with CC and VP (Peru) registered planes

Internationally, flights to and from Chile are operated by LAN Chile
LAN Peru operates some international flights, like EZE-LIM
LAN Equador operates some international flights to and from Quito
LAN Argentina is about to operate an international flight to MIA

Not all subsidies are OneWorld members, but LANPASS accumulation is possible on all flights and all subsidies share a single website and booking engine; www.lan.com
For support you can visit all LAN offices worldwide, regardless of which subsidiary you are flying on.

Quoting Mfz (Thread starter):
homecountry any more (Chile and Costa Rica),



Quoting Mfz (Thread starter):
as a Costa Rican company, or are these flights operated by subsidiaries legally registered in the other countries

TACA is a Salvadorean Company. Not Costa Rican (and boy do Costa Ricans just hate that!).. anywho.. not sure about their structure for ther subsidiaries but i am guessing that there are local investors and TACA just happens to have a controlling stake.

As far as i know all TACA planes are registered in the US, except for the odd Irish registered one.

I am sure there are others here that have better information..

Two minor corrections there PHKLM,

Quoting PHKLM (Reply 1):
VP (Peru) registered planes

Not anymore, and VP is Bermuda's registration prefix, not Peru's. They fly Chilean (CC-) registered airplanes.

One more correction. Not all flights within Chile are operated by Lan Express, and I don't believe they have an IATA code.

The only American city that Lan Peru flies to under their own code is Miami. Los Angeles and New York are flown by Lan, as part of an SCL-LIM-LAX or SCL-LIM-JFK routing. LP is also the only Lan subsidiary not in Chile that is a oneworld member.

Lan Ecuador does not fly any domestic flights. Some of their flights, such as GYE-UIO-MIA, have legs that are wholly within Ecuador, but they are not permitted to carry local traffic.

TACA has a TACA Peru division (IATA T0/ICAO TPU), which flies some domestic flights within Peru as well as select international flights. All TACA flights out of LIM that don't originate or terminate in one of the Central American countries that TACA is hubbed in are TACA Peru flights. TACA also has their LACSA division, and although the aircraft are in TACA colours, they fly with the LACSA code out of San Jose.

I reckon this is the case, they will issue an LA ticket (so now own IATA code) but it will read "operated by LAN Express"
Thanks for the correct info on Equador and Peru.

Lan Express is the new name of Ladeco, so, I think technically have "UC" code. I know sometimes Lan uses UC code to MDZ, GRU and MIA, at least in some cargo flights

Lan Peru have flight of its own to LAX (LP604), EZE (LP427/429) and GRU (LP679), and I think UIO for MAD connexion.
