LATAM passengers are now able to send and receive free text messages via WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and iMessage

Since yesterday, the airline customers are able to send and receive free text messages via WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and iMessage during the flight.

Initially, the facility will be available on 56 aircraft of the Airbus A320 family that perform flights within Brazil and flights from the country to other destinations in South America.

LATAM intends to extend the service to other aircraft in its fleet and reinforces that the free package is worth for text messages only – that is, it does not support the transfer of photos, videos or other files.

Learn how to access the service:

  • STEP 1 – the customer must put their mobile device in airplane mode;
  • STEP 2 – connect it to the LATAM Play wi-fi network;
  • STEP 3 – type latamplay.com in your browser and select the free text messaging package.

The free text messaging package is one of LATAM’s initiatives to expand connectivity and the offer of in-flight entertainment amid the resumption of air travel and with increasingly connected customers.
