This model was announced last year in Chile – seat of the airline – was the first country where it was applied .

The new scheme of Latam is to offer options of passages between 20 and 40% cheaper during the year, regardless of the promotions. It will offer four tariff options: Promo, Light, Plus and Top.

At any of these rates the passenger is entitled to carry hand luggage.

The Promo and Light rates do not include hold baggage, so the user will have the option to buy it at rates starting at $ 10.

In Plus and Top , cellar baggage is included and the traveler will be able to purchase additional baggage space if they need it.

Latam will also apply its new tariffs in Argentina, Colombia, Peru and Brazil.
