LATAM Airlines Group will resume its passenger operations between Santiago, Auckland, and Sydney beginning March 29. Tickets are already available for sale, with a frequency of three flights per week.

“Throughout the pandemic, we have actively collaborated with authorities to safely move towards a revival of the travel industry. The resumption of routes to New Zealand and Australia is one more step on the way to a new normal. We will continue working toward greater international connectivity, always having the health and safety of our passengers and collaborators as a priority,” said Claudio Moro, regional marketing and ecommerce manager.

According to the respective authorities, individuals who hold a COVID-19 vaccination certificate proving that they were fully vaccinated at least 14 days prior to the departure of their flight will be able to enter Australia on Feb. 21. In addition, they must complete a sworn statement and present a negative PCR test result carried out a maximum of 72 hours before their departure.

In order to enter New Zealand, passengers must meet specific entry requirements, which will be made more flexible in phases with the complete reopening of its borders scheduled for October 2022.
