October 2006: (LAN) Airlines more than doubled its 3rd-quarter net income to +$51.5 million from +$23.8 million in the year-ago period as revenues grew +22.6% to $762.3 million, boosting operating margin +7.6 points to 9.3%.

(LAN) said that the "significant margin improvements [resulted] mainly from higher revenues per (ATK) in both the passenger and cargo business. The company's strong 3rd-quarter operating performance provides a solid base for long-term growth and profitability." With 48 airplanes being added to its fleet in 2006 -2008, passenger capacity is expected to grow +10% - +12% for full-year 2006 and +23% - +25% in 2007.

Third-quarter operating expenses rose +13% to $691.8 million and operating income widened significantly to +$70.5 million from +$10 million in the year-ago quarter. Traffic increased +10.2% to 5.07 billion (RPK)s on a +11.9% lift in capacity to 6.7 billion (ASK)s, producing a load factor of 75.7% LF, down -1.1 points. Yield rose +17% to 9.4 cents.

(LAN) said it is moving forward with its domestic and regional business model overhaul, which aims to reduce overhead costs by -30% per (ASK) on short-haul routes by the end of 2008. It is targeting airplane utilization of 12 block hours per day for narrow body operations in Chile, Argentina and Peru. It will phase out 737-200s in favor of new A320s in 2007, and will operate more point-to-point flights. It plans for future "fare reductions" made possible by the cost savings.

July 2007: Calling it "the largest investment in the company's history," (LAN) Airlines announced that the board of directors decided to purchase 26 787s and acquire an additional 6 on lease. The commitment, which also includes 10 options, will require an investment of $3.2 billion and would make the carrier Latin America's largest Dreamliner operator. (LAN) said it will take delivery between 2011 and 2016 and that the options will be available in 2017 and 2018. "These new airplanes are aimed to replace and grow the company's long-haul fleet and will allow (LAN) to operate new international routes that will be added to (LAN) Airlines' current network including LAN Peru (LPU), LAN Argentina (LNR), and LAN Ecuador (LNE)," the carrier said. (CEO) Enrique Cueto said the "historic investment assures the future growth of the company."

January 2008: TAM (TPR) and LAN Peru (LPU) launched a code share arrangement under which TAM (TPR) will place its code on LAN Peru (LPU) flights between Sao Paulo and Lima, and onward to Cuzco and Arequipa, while LAN Peru (LPU) will have access to "multiple flight options" operated by TAM (TPR), the Brazilian carrier said. It already code shares with (LAN) Airlines.

July 2010: LAN Peru (LPU) from early January will offer 2x-weekly nonstop service from its Lima base to Easter Island as part of a network expansion that could include flights to the Galapagos Islands and Iguazu Falls in Argentina. The Easter Island route, scheduled to start on January 5, will be served by a 221-seat, 767-300. The 767-300 also serves (LPU)’s latest USA gateway, San Francisco, which was opened on July 1.

December 2010: Peru and Mexico have agreed to expand their bilateral air accord to include a significant number of new frequencies available for airlines from both countries, as well as new city pairs. The Peruvian Ministry of Transport & Communications has confirmed that the number of frequencies for flights between both countries will be increased from 13 to 56 weekly frequencies for each side. The agreement also includes a number of new cities to which flights between both countries can be operated in addition to Lima and Mexico City, namely Toluca and Cancun in Mexico, and Cusco and Arequipa in Peru, although a ministry source says that the "spirit of the agreement" calls for authorizing "any route" between both countries.

Any carrier of either country can use the available frequencies and both sides have committed to speed up the administrative authorization process. Additionally, the agreement introduces the full liberalization of air cargo services and gives full fifth freedom rights for flights with origin and/or destination within Latin America.

Currently, Aeromexico (AMX), Lan Peru (LPU) and Taca Peru (TNM) offer flights from Lima to Mexico City. (TNM) has already said that it plans to grow its 4x-weekly frequencies between Lima and Mexico operated with A319s to daily flights, while (LPU) and (AMX), which are operating 767 and 737-800 equipment, respectively, have yet to announce their plans for the route.

February 2011: (LAN) Peru (LPU) is expanding from Lima. (LPU) will start service to Uruguay’s capital Montevideo in April using A319s. The major airlines serving Montevideo’s airport are Pluna (PLU), (TAM) (TPR), (Gol) (GOT), Aerolineas Argentinas (ARG), Copa (COP), TACA (TAC)/(TNM), American (AAL), and Iberia (IBE). (LAN) serves it
from Santiago as well.

March 2011: (LAN) Airlines and affiliates Lan Peru (LPU), Lan Argentina (LNR) and Lan Ecuador (LNE) signed a bilateral interline agreement with JetBlue Airways (JBL), under which (LAN) passengers gain access to up to 55 cities in the USA, Latin America and the Caribbean through (JBL)'s hub at New York (JFK). (JBL) customers gain access to (LAN) destinations in South America. Under the terms of the deal, customers will be able to purchase a single ticket for travel on both airlines and take advantage of 1-stop check-in for boarding passes and baggage.

"This agreement makes it possible to connect passengers with attractive new destinations and offers more convenient connections, including 150 new daily interline flights to and from New York, Boston, Chicago, and Washington DC, as well as others in the Midwest and Western United States," (LAN) Airlines (CEO) Passenger Division Armando Valdivieso said.

(JBL) in January disclosed it would seek to add "another 6 partnerships or so" this year. (JBL) also interlines with American Airlines (AAL), Lufthansa (DLH), South African Airways (SAA), Aer Lingus (ARL), Emirates (EAD), El Al (ELA) and Cape Air.

December 2011: (LAN) Airlines and Amadeus have signed a full-content distribution agreement. The multi-year agreement guarantees Amadeus travel agents worldwide access to the entire range of fares, schedules and inventory relating to the >18 million seats sold annually by the (LAN) Group Airlines ((LAN) Airlines, LAN Ecuador (LNE), LAN Perú (LPU), LAN Argentina (LNR), Aires (AIR), and LAN Express (LDE)).

Amadeus has content agreements with key airlines in Latin America including AviancaTaca (AVI)/(TAC), Copa Airlines (COP) and (TAM) (TPR).

February 2012: LAN Peru (LPU) joined (TACA) (TAC) in connecting Lima (LIM) with Havana (HAV), the capital of Cuba, on February 2. (LPU) will operate the route 3x-weekly (TACA offers 6x-weekly flights using an A319. (LAN) Airlines previously operated flights to Havana from Santiago in Chile, but dropped the route in April last year, having been operated continuously since 1999.

Starting in August, (LAN) and its sister airline, LAN Peru (LPU) will increase frequencies out of their respective hubs of Santiago and Lima to major destinations in the USA, Mexico and the Caribbean. New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Cancún and Mexico City are among the destinations to be considered.

(LAN)’s International General Manager, Damian Scokin said in some cases frequencies may double and approximately +20 new frequencies may be added overall. About 40% of (LAN)’s passengers are leisure travelers; the new frequencies aim to improve connectivity between South and North America and the Caribbean, Scokin said.

(LAN) Airlines flew Latin America's 1st continuously guided flight from takeoff to landing using Performance-based Navigation (PBN) technology. The (PBN) flight plan between Cusco and Lima, designed by (GE) Aviation (GEC), is part of the "Green Skies of Peru" project, a collaborative effort among (LAN)/(LPU), (GE) Peru's air navigation service provider (CORPAC) and regulator (DGAC).

According to (GEC), deploying a continuous (PBN) city pair flight path creates additional predictability and continuity throughout the entire flight, compared to a single (PBN) arrival or departure path, while solving operational challenges at the individual airports.

The (PBN) departure, en-route, arrival and approach procedures will save participating airlines on average 19 track miles, 6.3 minutes, 450 pounds of fuel and 1,420 pounds of CO2 emissions per flight, and will enable increased capacity at Lima's Jorge Chavez International Airport, (GEC) said. “Operational excellence, passenger service and environmental protection are the pillars of our sustainability strategy, as reflected in this initiative,” said Jorge Vilches, (CEO) of (LAN) Peru (LPU). “At (LPU), we have made a great effort to properly train our pilots (FC), to equip our A319/320 airplanes with state-of-the-art technology, to obtain (DGAC) certification for these types of operations, and to design and deploy these highly specialized procedures in collaboration with (GEC). This is, undoubtedly, big news for our country, and will be of great benefit to all our passengers.”

A formal trial will commence allowing the team to validate the benefits and the paths under various operating conditions and finalize the deployment plan.

(LAN) Airlines/LAN Peru (LPU) operated its Cusco - Lima route with Required Navigation Performance (RNP) satellite navigation from takeoff to landing, shortening the route by 30.5 km, saving 67.5 gallons of fuel and emitting 644 kg less carbon dioxide.

Though LANPeru (LPU) has used (RNP) operations since 2009 on flights to Cusco and since 2011 on flights to Cajamarca, Arequipa and Juliaca, (LPU) had only used it for landings prior to this flight.

In 2009, (GEC), in collaboration with (IATA) (ITA), designed and deployed Required Navigation Performance (RNP) approach procedures for (LAN)/(LPU) at Cusco to improve access into the airport that is flanked by the Andes Mountains. Prior to the (RNP) paths, it was typical for 1 or more of (LPU)'s 15 - 21 scheduled flights per day into Cusco to be delayed or diverted due to poor weather and low visibility. Since the (RNP) paths have been in use at Cusco, (GEC) said (LPU) has reduced cancellations from 12 to 5, flight delays by -45% and un-stabilized approaches by -94%, per month on average. During the 1st year of (RNP) use at Cusco, >30,000 of (LPU)´s passengers avoided flight cancellations or delays.

March 2012: Chilean airlines saw a +16% increase in international passenger traffic and a +15.8% growth in domestic traffic in January, logging a record figure of 1.4 million boarding passengers, its all-time best single month on record.

Data released by the Junta de Aeronáutica Civil shows (LAN) Airlines Chile was the market leader in international traffic, with a 49.5% market share. (LAN) Peru (LPU) was 2nd, with a 5.7% market share. Sky Airline (SSV) was 3rd with a market share of 4.9%. In the domestic market, (LAN) Express (LDE) was 1st with a 50.3% market share. (LAN) Airlines had a 28.1% market share and Sky Airline (SSV) had a 17.3% market share. (PAL) Airlines (PPV) secured a 3.8% market share. International cargo traffic decreased -4.7%, while domestic cargo grew +5%.

According to reports in the local newspaper "El Mercúrio," the traffic increases are the result of a competitive market, improved financial situations among Chileans, and the introduction of credit options to purchase airline tickets and travel packages. A decline of the USA dollar against the Chilean peso also helped boost international traffic.

October 2012: LANPeru (LPU) will increase 7x-weekly, Lima - New York service to 11x-weekly on November 3.

February 2013: (LAN) Airlines ((IATA) Code LA, based at Santiago de Chile Arturo Merino Benítez International (SCL)) and sister carrier, (TAM) Linhas Aéreas ((IATA) Code: JJ, based at São Paulo Congonhas International (CGH)) (TPR) have been banned effective February 15 from operating to Bolivia according to statements made by the Bolivian Transportation Ministry without giving reasons for the announcement. LANPerú ((IATA) Code: LP, based at Lima Jorge Chávez International (LIM)) (LPU) currently offers 2 daily triangle flights from Lima Jorge Chávez International (LIM) to both La Paz El Alto (LPB) and Santa Cruz Viru Viru International (VVI) with A319-100s. (LAN) Airlines operates from Santiago de Chile Arturo Merino Benítez International (SCL) to La Paz 4x-weekly and to Santa Cruz three times weekly, both via Iquique Diego Aracena International (IQQ) using A320-200s. In addition, (TAM) Airlines ((IATA) Code: PZ, based at Asuncion Silvio Pettirossi International (ASU)) (LAP) offers 4x-weekly flights between Asuncion Silvio Pettirossi International (ASU) and Santa Cruz, providing the only link between Paraguay and Bolivia. Despite the announcements, (LAN) and (TAM) (TPR) flights to Bolivia currently still seem to be operating as normal.

April 2013: Japan Airlines (JAL) and (LAN)Peru (LPU) , Oneworld (ONW) Alliance members, will code share flights on USA, Japan and Peru services upon government approval.

September 2013: LANPeru (LPU), an affiliate of (LATAM) Airlines, will suspend San Francisco - Lima service on April 1, 2014.

February 2014: Peru’s domestic passenger traffic grew +17% to 8.4 million passengers in 2013, according to data released by Canatur, the Peruvian National Chamber of Tourism. The entity, which represents the travel and tourism business sector, said the high increase is mainly due to promotional air fares launched by the industry.

Market leader LanPeru (LPU), with a 62.2% market share, told local media through a spokesperson that promotional fares represented 70% of its sales last year.

AviancaTaca (AVI) ranked 2 with a 15.1% market share, followed by Peruvian with 10.2%, StarPeru with 8.35, LC Peru with a 2.9% market share and Atsa with a 0.4% market share.

July 2014: LAN Peru (LPU) will add 3x-weekly Airbus A320 service to Ayacucho and daily Talara service in 4th quarter.

September 2014: (LAN) Airlines ((IATA) Code: LA, based at Santiago de Chile International) and (TAM) Linhas Aéreas ((iata) Code: JJ, based at São Paulo Congonhas) (TPR) will begin the transition into a singular brand before the end of the year (LAN)'s (CEO), Ignacio Cueto, has said. Speaking to Colombia's "El Tiempo" newspaper, Cueto said (LATAM) Group management is working hard to find a suitable name that will unify the (LATAM) brand, but which "will not necessarily be that of (TAM), (LAN), or even (LATAM)."

The (CEO) went on to add that the creation of a single brand would also better facilitate promotion of the group companies. It will also allow passengers to better identify the group's network of destinations, particularly in places where they are less well known, he said.

(LAN) and (TAM) (TPR) merged in 2012 to create the world's 2nd largest airline by market value.

(LATAM) Airlines Group includes (LAN) Airlines and affiliates LAN Perú ((IATA) LP, based at Lima) (LPU), LAN Argentina ((IATA) Code: 4M, based at Buenos Aires Aeroparque) (LNR), (LAN) Colombia ((IATA) Code: 4C, based at Bogotá) (AIR), (LAN) Ecuador ((IATA) Code: XL, based at Quito International) (LNE), (LAN) Cargo ((IATA) Code: UC, based at Santiago de Chile International) (LCO), Linea Aérea Carguera de Colombia ((IATA) Code: L7, Bogotá), MAS Air ((IATA) Code: M7, based at México City) (MSR) and (ABSA) Cargo ((IATA) Code: M3, based at Campinas Viracopos) (BSB), alongside (TAM) (TPR) and its subsidiaries, Pantanal Linhas Aéreas ((IATA) Code: GP, based at São Paulo Congonhas), (TAM) Airlines ((IATA) Code: PZ, based at Asuncion) (LAP), and (TAM) Cargo - Táxi Aéreo Marília (based at São Paulo Congonhas).
