Oct 19. The LATAM group projects a passenger operation of 81% for October (measured in available seat kilometers – ASK) compared to the same period in 2019 (pre-pandemic scenario). Looking ahead to the month, the airline group will restart 5 routes in South America: São Paulo-Boston, Rio de Janeiro-Buenos Aires, Quito-Miami, Lima-Mendoza and Santiago-Puerto Natales.
LATAM plans to operate approximately 1,291 daily national and international flights during the month, connecting 144 destinations in 22 countries. The cargo business, meanwhile, has almost 1,400 cargo plane flights scheduled. All these projections are subject to the evolution of the pandemic in the countries where the group operates.
In September 2022, passenger traffic (measured in rental passenger kilometers – RPK) was 82.3% compared to the same period in 2019, based on an operation measured in ASK (available seat kilometers) of 81.5% compared to September 2019. This implied that the load factor increased 0.8 percentage points, reaching 83.3%.
