LAN Begins Serving San Cristobal

November 28, 2011 § 1 Comment

LAN Airlines the leading South American carrier has begun operating two flights weekly to the island of San Cristobal in the Galapagos.

“By opening this new route, the island of San Cristobal will be connected not only to Ecuador, but to the world, through the different international destinations reached by LAN Ecuador, LAN Airlines and its other affiliates, as well as by other airline members of the oneworld alliance,” said Maximiliano Naranjo, general manager of LAN Ecuador, in a written statement.

San Cristobal is one of two airports in the Galapagos Islands.  Prior to the operation of LAN, San Cristobal was served by TAME and Aergoal who operated several flights per week.  LAN provides much needed space on flights to the Galapagos.

“The community is looking forward to our flights, and we want to respond by delivering the world-class service we are known for,” added Naranjo.

The flights will be operated with a fleet of modern Airbus A320 aircraft, whose fuel efficiency allows them to produce less noise and CO2 emissions. Approximate flight time from Guayaquil to San Cristobal is two hours, and flights will operate on Wednesdays and Sundays.
