Continuing with its expansion LAN Airlines is increasing its network within the Americas offering more options to travel with more directs flights.

During 2008 LAN Airlines expects to grow 30% specially in its South America network specially in LAN Chile domestic flights and LAN Peru, expanding its successful short haul model (LASER). Also the company will increase a couple of longhaul routes specially from Lima.

LAN Chile:

LAN will continue to expanding its domestic flights offering more direct and non stop flights increasing also the frequencies according the reception of the new aircrafts during 2008. For Chile, LAN will add 15 A318 and others 2 A320-200. Also the company will continue its program increase its night operations.

LAN Argentina:

Two weeks ago, LAN announced a new route LIM-COR with the intention to seek new strategies to make more profitable the LAN Argentina operations. Recently LAN has transferred the sixth A320 to start the new frequencies.

From March 2008 LAN Argentina will offer from Aeroparque four daily flights to Cordoba excepting the weekend, three daily flight to Mendoza ( from Monday to Saturday), increase two daily flights to Salta on weekends and will reduce its flights to Comodoro Rivadavia operates now only Fridays and Sunday, Rio Gallegos will continue with only a weekly flights every Tuesday and will suspend its flights to El Calafate and Ushuaia until the next summer season.

LAN Peru

LAN expect a growth of 40% for LAN Peru adding new routes and aircraft. To do that LAN will invest US$130 millions the Peruvian subsidiary during 2008. Increasing its network LAN Peru will start Lima-Quito-Medellín route with an A319 and will resume the Lima-Bogotá-Caracas routes very soon. In domestic routes in Peru, LAN Peru start routes to Talara, Tumbes opening also intra provincial routes as Chiclayo-Iquitos of Chiclayo-Tarapoto for example. LAN Peru wants also increase its frequencies to Cuzco but its depends the capacity of the terminal and airport operations. Actually LP offers 12 daily flights in Lima-Cuzco route.

LAN Peru will moved another four aircrafts including A319 and A320 (one confirmed CC-CQN) to increase the capacity and starts the new routes.

For longhaul routes LAN will adds more frequencies in Lima-Miami routes offering 10 weekly flights (actually operates 7) and will add other three new frequencies in Lima-Madrid route offering in the next months 6 weekly flights.


During 2008 LAN Airlines will receive 24 new aircrafts (including A318, A320, B763, B772F) and will add others 3 aircrafts ( 3 A343 leased).

Thanks for the update!

What is the latest status of conversions to the new Business cabin on the 763s? I was under the impression that 18 out of 21 planes have been converted, but I am not sure this is still the case.

At this moment LAN will not increase the LAN Ecuador operations until further advice. However there is a possibility to offer domestic destination in Ecuador with a codeshare agreement with Tame.

Rio Gallegos will continue with only a weekly flights every Tuesday and will suspend its flights to El Calafate and Ushuaia until the next summer season.

Now THIS I don't understand. They keep operating RGL and CRD year round with a weekly frequency - but the routes that actually have more demand they keep not to choose. I for sure know that the routes to deep south Patagonia do need sacrifice from aircraft utilization rates, but I do believe that LAN's model can make it work - especially having the more seats than an MD83 and a more efficient airplanes (fuel consumption-wise).

If LAN could get the existing offer by taking the flights to RGL and CRD to at least 5x weekly down to FTE and USH, that'd a nice increase in seat offers and they'd for sure fill it up with foreigners rather than locals. (Foreigners tend to pay more for those seats).

It looks that LAN Ecuador is the only airline with a darker future than LAN Argentina. I congratulate LAN Chile and LAN Peru for their excellent growth perspectives and forecast!

I agree with you, the case of RGL and CRD operations are strange comparing with the rest of LAN network. If LAN could make a marginal profit in smallest Chilean routes why they can't increase its operations in one of the most important and touristic destination in Argentina?

Quoting MD11junkie (Reply 8):

Ecuador is a small market and considering the big network of LAN Peru its not necessary to create another big airline inside the company with a similar network.

The A343s will receive the new interiors and configuration during the second semester 2008 as the others A340. Meanwhile prayers could work to avoid the CC-CQG in longhaul routes.

JJ does not fly the route in the meanwhile and rumor is that TA is likely studying such possibility since the demise of the old TA/JJ agreement last year.
I don't get the numbers, but the volume of traffic LIM-GIG is arguably larger than LIM-COR and vice versa.

How so? Based on what stats? Based on what airline flying that route and passengers, travel agents desperately demanding another flight?

Just because the city is almost 6 times bigger than COR, that doesn't mean it will be better for LAN to fly LIM-GIG. For example, I don't see anyone flying BUE-MAO, while there are 2 airlines flying GIG-MAO.

Yes, I know it's domestic, however - the simple concept applies to this case.

Now this is just to get the planes out of the country to make money with no restrictions on fares, and in dollars. It's a brilliant idea.

And -CQG is the most de-rated of all 5 A340-300Xs LAN has. It's the one that you'll have to pray if you are departing on a hot noon - as it's the one were the engines have the highest power derate, that means, that the engines will have less thrust, therefore needing an extra longer runway - even longer than when in a heated summer day with derate at 0.

If you get CQG with 37°C in a noon departure, your flight will be delayed, for sure.

LAN is still not happy with the A318, but through it's LASER model, has found a niche for them. LAN is sending its A318s on low density routes, where cargo is not that much important. This kind of plane is allowing LAN to open destinations without stops to fill in for cargo for the flight to be profittable.
