Hello all -
I flew with LAN Chile a few years ago from SCL-SSA nonstop - I believe they offered the flight on a seasonal basis twice weekly. Does anyone know if they still fly this route seasonally?

Thanks!

I believe this year the route will come back as Salvador is a VERY popular destination among chilean tourists.

Maybe RJ can confirm plans.

Saludos.

I don't know where you guys come up with those names, but last i checked the city name is just Salvador. There is no "de Bahia" on it!!!
In fact, Bahia is the state in which Salvador is the capital. Nobody here in Brazil calls it Salvador de Bahia, only Salvador.

Sorry, but it sounds really strange for us.

I really would like to know why the international city name is known like that. Is there any other big city in the world named Salvador? The only one I can think of is San Salvador, which is the capital of the country El Salvador. Still San Salvador is different from Salvador.

We usually just say Salvador. Salvador da Bahia can be said as well, but it isn't common. In my corner of the country at least.

They did, but I don't know if it will happen again this year... I searched on amadeus and couldn't find any flights this summer.

I think now that LA and JJ codeshare..this route could be even better for LA, especially if they would offer REC, AJU, MCZ, NAT, JPB in codeshare. There is strong demand for seasonal traffic both in Winter and Summer... maybe LA can even operate 4 weekly instead of 2...

Last year they operated 4x weekly SCL-FLN seasonal service as well as a second daily non-stop SCL-GIG
For SSA, after their agreement with TAM, even being interesting to offer the non-stop, LAN is using both Rio and São Paulo as connecting points.

That's the price for the huge concentration in Brazil, a city with more than 3.0m people struggles to continue service to another with 5.0m. We would see SCL-SSA if:

a) SSA got a local airline
b) LAN focus on SCL-Europe using Brazil as a stop
c) Total restriction for new flights at São Paulo (in place), Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, Belo Horizonte, Curitiba and Porto Alegre.
d) Brazilian Government focus on real incentives for new city-pairs (less airport fees for example for specific city-pairs). Now to operate in Brazil, airport fees are the same for Guarulhos or Salvador.

Usually LA releases its seasonal services in November/December just before the busy Summer holiday period. Normally SSA and FLN seasonal services are operated during January and February only.

As a matter of fact, SCL-FLN became LA most popular seasonal service to Brazil, last year the route operated 5 x week.

Well, the short name of the city is indeed only Salvador. Salvador da Bahia is used frequently to mark the fact that it lies in Bahia, but also to differentiate it from the several Salvadors in Portugal. Recently, it is being used to mark the difference from San Salvador in El Salvador.
The complete name of the Brazilian Salvador is actually São Salvador da Bahia de Todos os Santos, but the name suffered the same process like "São Sebastião do Rio de Janeiro" and "São Paulo de Piratininga" did.
Foreigners tend to underestimate the importance of the contraction "da", but it's utterly important. Using "de" would be just as wrong as saying "Frankfurt an Main" instead of "Frankfurt am Main" or "Isle of the Man" instead of "Isle of Man".
I would hate to see the "Salvador de Bahia" version consolidate internationally, just like it happened to the Rio de Janeiro. Yes, it's "The Rio de Janeiro" with an article. At least it's not as dreadful as "Oporto".

LAN dropped its seasonal route to Salvador in 2006 to reduce cost and focussed in the regional markets. Since November 2007 LAN offers SSA in codeshare with TAM via GRU.

Correct, but due to strong demand, FLN continues to be operated seasonally nonstop during January and February. There are other Chilean charter operator which also fly to FLN an increasingly popular destination with Chileans.

For the Chilean FLN is a popular destination for vacations. The others carriers which serves SCL-FLN market are GOL (vía EZE and POA) and charter flights of Aerolínea Principal (now will operate using Flyglobespan aircrafts) adn Sky Airline.

What aircraft was LAN operating to SSA, an A320?

On a side note... Salvador is the only city I've been to in Brazil and I loved it.

FLN is very famous among both Chile and Argentina. Same places like Florianopolis (FLN) and Balneario Camboriu holds important investments in Real Estate, mostly by Argentinians

There are on average 350 seasonal charters from Argentina to FLN every year. Also a lot of Uruguayans, PU operates MVD-FLN seasonally.
