LATAM Airlines Group launches longest ever flight, to Melbourne
LATAM Airlines Group has inaugurated its non-stop service between Santiago, Chile and Melbourne, Australia.
The carrier becomes the only airline to connect Latin America with the Victorian capital.
The westbound flight (Santiago-Melbourne) is over 11,000 km long and will last 15 hours, making it the longest flight in LATAM's history.
The company will operate three flights per week between the two cities.
LATAM currently operates seven flights per week from Santiago to Sydney (via Auckland, New Zealand).
In 2015, the airline introduced the Boeing 787-9 aircraft to the route.
