This week marked the official start of LATAM Airlines Brazil’s special operation for the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games throughout Brazil’s main airports.
A total of more than 100 special operational initiatives were developed to efficiently serve the fans and delegations, and maintain service quality for all passengers travelling with the airline in the months of August and September.
The main focus is to guarantee on-time and safe operation throughout the event, paying special attention to the opening and closing weekends, when Rio de Janeiro will welcome an influx of passengers in its two airports (Santos Dumont and Galeão).
LATAM Airlines Brazil expects to serve around a quarter of the public using air to travel to the games.
Of the 4,500 Paralympic athletes, 30 per cent are expected to travel on LATAM aircraft.
