After the Argentine government confirmed the authorization of Mendoza’s El Plumerillo International Airport as a «safe corridor», LATAM Airlines confirmed to Aviacionline that it has requested authorization to resume operations from Santiago de Chile and Sao Paulo.

The intention is to restart flights from October 18, in both cases with three weekly frequencies, subject to government approval.


Mendoza was the first Argentine airport (besides Buenos Aires) to be authorized to receive scheduled passenger flights as of March 2020. Today Aerolíneas Argentinas also announced that it will fly from Mendoza to Santiago de Chile.

This puts an end to the unequal situation experienced by passengers from the provinces, who had to travel via Buenos Aires to enter or leave Argentina, since the land crossings are not enabled either.

Prior to the outbreak of the pandemic, Mendoza was connected to Panama City (one daily flight by Copa Airlines), Lima (one daily flight by LATAM), Santiago de Chile (10 weekly flights by LATAM and four by SKY) and Sao Paulo-Guarulhos (two weekly flights by LATAM and two by GOL).
