LATAM -the merge of LAN (Chile) and TAM (Brazil)- will bring the new Airbus A350 to Madrid in May/2016.
"We will be the 1st company to cross the Atlantic with this modern aircraft" said Rodrigo Contreras, General Director of LATAM Europe.
LATAM will be the 4th airline to receive the A350-900 end of December this year.
LATAM is in the struggle of various groups of airlines to dominate routes between Europe and South America.
Currently, Iberia –which has ordered the A350 too- is the absolute leader in this market, although LATAM will be the first deploying the A350 at Barajas, a few months before Iberia begins to receive their order.
LATAM has a important advantage: “the regional network of LATAM is unbeatable: 42 destinations in Brazil and 115 on the continent", said Contreras.
