The devasting earthquake in Chile is another terrible natural disaster that shocks our world and our hearts go out to the people in that country. In terms of our clients we do not have any tours in Chile at this time so no-one was affected and we do not have any groups arriving on other tours until next week. We will work with our local operators to see what impact this will have for those groups.
For any clients heading over to Latin America and travelling via Chile the latest news is that Santiago airport is open to limited flights and the following arrangements have been made:
Santiago airport has reopened to incoming international flights. Flights of the national carrier, Lan Airlines (LFL, LAN.SN), will land Sunday.
The Chilean Aviation Authority said other airlines will land at airports in the north of the country, as well as Mendoza in Argentina on the border with Chile, and will be ferried by bus to Santiago.
The Santiago airport passenger terminal is damaged, so passengers will be received at a temporary terminal.
There is a knock on affect to other flights as re-routing has occured from Chile to other countries particularly Argentina in the last 24 hours. So no doubt there will be some delays and flight changes.
