Mexico is one of the most open destinations for international tourism. The reactivation of this route will allow us not only to be the only airline to offer a direct flight, but also to meet the growing demand for tourism to and from the Mexican destination. Resuming the Santiago-Cancun operation is excellent news and an indication of the pace of recovery in the industry. We are very glad to continue with the reactivation of operations in Mexico while adhering to all necessary health procedures for safe travel for everybody.
The airline currently has direct flights to Lima, Peru from Mexico City and to São Paulo, Brazil from Mexico City and Cancun.
