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