Committed to strengthening connectivity internationally and connecting the U.S. to South America, LATAM Airlines Group affiliate LAN Peru and TAM Airlines are inaugurating brand new routes from Orlando International Airport (MCO) this month to Brazil and Peru, respectively. TAM Airlines is kicking off a new service to Brasilia International Airport from Orlando International Airport today, June 12, 2015. TAM also currently serves Sao Paulo from Orlando with 14 weekly flights. Additionally, LAN Peru will offer the first-ever daily nonstop flights between Orlando International Airport and Jorge Chávez International Airport in Lima, Peru, starting June 20, 2015.
“We are constantly striving to offer our passengers the very best connectivity to, from and within South America, and are pleased to announce this increased service linking the Orlando market to Brasilia and Lima and vice versa,” said Pablo Chiozza, Senior Vice President, LATAM Airlines Group, USA, Canada and Caribbean. “We are committed to growing the Orlando market, and these two new routes will enhance our network for business and leisure travelers into and out of Orlando International Airport, as well as the Brazilian and Peruvian communities who will benefit from increased access to friends and family in each of these destinations. In addition, Brasilia and Lima serve as gateways for American travelers to discover over 115 South American destinations through the extensive domestic network of LAN Airlines and TAM Airlines.”
“The decision of LATAM Airlines Group to launch two new routes in June to Orlando International Airport is great news,” says Frank Kruppenbacher, Chairman of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “This first nonstop service to Brasilia on TAM Airlines and to Lima on LAN Peru, demonstrate the strength of the commitment to grow air service and the economic benefits for the regions.”
