Santiago becomes more accessible to the Aussies with a new direct flight


Santiago, the capital of Chile, is on the bucket list of thousands of people for its amazing culture, architecture, and food. The Australian travellers are soon to enjoy a hassle-free travel route from Australia to Chile. The LATAM Airlines will launch a new direct flight between Melbourne and Santiago in October 2017.

The beautiful capital city, sitting in a beautiful valley surrounded by the Chilean Coast Range and the snow-capped Andes, is the destination of lots of Aussie visitors each year. Now, they will get the chance to have a direct flight three times a week.

The co-founder of Chimu Adventures, Chad Carey, said that LATAM’s non-stop service was to carry a record number of visitors from Australia to South America. According to him, it would not only increase the accessibility of Aussie tourists to South America and Chile in particular but also relieve the passengers with a competitive airfare.

The direct flight will cut more than four hours flying time from Melbourne to Santiago. According to Mr Carey, the travellers can use this extra time for a half-day Santiago tour.
