The figures show a sustained increase in demand in all markets where the airline operates


LATAM's operational passenger projection for June 2021 is estimated to reach 36% (measured in available seat kilometers - ASK) compared to the same month in 2019, in a pre-pandemic context. The projected operation is higher than that of last May (30.8%, measured in ASK), while all markets show projections higher than those of the previous month and that are explained by the progress in the vaccination process in the countries where the group operates and the consequent increase in demand.

LATAM foresees approximately 691 daily domestic and international flights in the sixth month of the year, connecting 114 destinations in 14 countries. Meanwhile, the Cargo division has scheduled for June more than 1,000 flights in cargo planes, 20% more than in the same month of 2019. All these projections are subject to the evolution of the pandemic, as well as travel restrictions in the countries where LATAM operates.

During May 2021, passenger traffic (measured in rented passenger-kilometers - RPK) was 25.6% in relation to the same period of 2019, based on an operation measured in ASK (available seat-kilometers) of 30.8% compared with May 2019. This implied that the load factor decreased 14.1 percentage points, reaching 69.6%.

In cargo, the load factor was 69.8%, which corresponds to an increase of 13.4 percentage points in relation to May 2019.
