Latam Airlines will fly daily to South Africa
From April 5, 2019 the airline will connect São Paulo and Johannesburg daily
LATAM Airlines Group will operate two additional frequencies a week on the São Paulo-Johannesburg route, which will allow a daily flight between both cities. Currently the route is operated five times a week from the São Paulo / Guarulhos airport. This increase in frequencies is scheduled for April 5, 2019, although it is possible that it will be anticipated, which will be announced opportunely by the company.
LATAM is the only Latin American company to connect the region with Africa and this new announcement reinforces the relevance of the operation, this increase being the reflection of the company's strategic plan to continue connecting Latin America with the world.
The tickets for the new frequencies are now on sale at latam.com and other sales channels.
