December 10. On December 3, LATAM Brazil resumed its international connectivity between São Paulo and London in the UK. After nearly a year without flying to Heathrow International Airport, LATAM restarted the flight. The airline is using its Boeing 777-300ER fleet, including one with a Star Wars livery, aptly called the Stormtrooper Plane.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, LATAM Brazil stopped flying between São Paulo and London on December 23, 2020. Brazil suffered many travel restrictions from countries all across the world, so there was zero demand to travel abroad. Only just recently, the Brazilian airlines are resuming back their international map routes.
Last week, LATAM operated the first flight back to London, onboard PT-MUC, a Boeing 777-300ER that is 13.03 years old, according to ch-aviation’s database. LATAM received this aircraft on December 11, 2008. The airplane has 410 seats distributed in three classes: 322 in economy, 50 in economy plus, and 38 in business. Nonetheless, this is not the Stormtrooper Plane.
On December 8, LATAM used a Boeing 777-300ER registration PT-MUA on the route between São Paulo and London. PT-MUA is better known as the Stormtrooper Plane because it has a Star Wars-related livery.
