Direct routes to Chile now flying

As part of British Airways' increased service to South America, they have just launched a new direct service from the UK to Santiago, Chile

Now, travellers looking to visit the Atacama DesertPatagonia, any of the wineries in the Central Valley and many more destinations have a simple way to get there, with flights departing as of 3 January 2017.

The BA press office says, 'Santiago will become the airline’s lengthiest long-haul route, taking 14 hours 40 minutes, nearly an hour more than the current longest flight of 13 hours 50 minutes service to Buenos Aires. The four-a-week flight will be served by the airline’s newest aircraft, the four-cabin Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, complete with a new First cabin.

'Santiago will be the latest destination in Latin America to join British Airways’ route network. The airline recently launched new services to San Jose in Costa Rica and Lima in Peru. In addition, it also operates flight to Rio and Sao Paulo in Brazil and Buenos Aires in Argentina.'

This new routing will make it easier for British travellers to plan travel not only in Chile, but also in neighbouring countries. To learn more, contact a Wexas travel specialist to learn more options for planning a holiday in South America.
