Temporary changes to some routes operated by LATAM from Santiago
Due to industry-wide delays to the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine maintenance program, some of our Boeing 787 aircrafts are temporarily out of service. It should be stressed that this maintenance is a preventive measure and does not represent a safety issue.
In order to lessen the impact, we have leased a few airplanes to support our operations from Santiago temporarily. This way, we can maintain our regular services and itineraries.
Temporary operation of WAMOS Air aircrafts
LATAM has leased two Airbus A330s from the Spanish airline Wamos Air to temporarily operate, along with its crew, flights LA 0572, LA 0575, LA 0576 and LA 0577 in the Santiago (SCL) - Bogota (BOG) route starting January 15, with minor schedule changes.
A common practice in the global airline industry
Wamos Air is a leading leasing company and charter provider based in Europe with extensive experience serving many of the world’s most important airlines.
Ensuring LATAM’s safety and service standards
We have been working closely with Wamos Air to ensure our uncompromising standards of safety and service are maintained during this period. Wamos also upholds the strictest international safety standards and has received approval from relevant aviation authorities for the temporary operations. In addition, Wamos is a member of IATA and as a Spanish operator, it is regulated by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and is IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) accredited.
