  • Read more 01APR2014: US Airways, TAM Linhas Aéreas leave Star Alliance for Oneworld
    TAM Linhas Aéreas (JJ, São Paulo Congonhas) and US Airways (US, Phoenix Sky Harbor) have officially left Star Alliance and joined Oneworld with effect from March 31. The transition is the biggest single-day expansion of the oneworld alliance since its launch 15 years ago.

    LAN Airlines (LA, Santiago de Chile Int'l), TAM's partner in LATAM Airlines Group, has been a full member of oneworld since 2000 with all other LAN passenger airlines - LAN Argentina (4M, Buenos Aires Aeroparque), LAN Colombia (4C, Bogotá), LAN Ecuador (XL, Quito Int'l) and LAN Perú (LP, Lima) - joining the alliance as affiliate members since.

    US Airways' regional affiliates, operating as US Airways Express, also transitioned to oneworld, following US Airways' recent merger with American Airlines (AA, Dallas/Fort Worth).

    The two carriers will collectively add almost 100 new destinations to the Oneworld network with TAM contributing almost 45 new cities and US Airways adding more than 50.

    Oneworld will add another member on May 1 when SriLankan Airlines (UL, Colombo Int'l) joins the fold.
  • Read more 29SEP2013: Argentine judge orders ORSNA to allow LAN to stay put in Buenos Aires
    LAN Argentina (4M, Buenos Aires Aeroparque) is set to remain put at Buenos Aires Aeroparque after an Argentine judge, Liliana Heiland, ruled that the Argentine airports authority (Organismo Regulador del Sistema Nacional de Aeropuertos - ORSNA) must not interfere or inhibit LAN's operations at the airport. ORSNA had issued a 10-day eviction notice to the airline in August. La Nación reports that the directive is valid for 6 months or until a resolution of the underlying issues between the two entities; which ever occurs first. Buenos Aires had hinted that a desire for reciprocity in Aerolineas Argentinas (AR, Buenos Aires Ezeiza) being granted domestic traffic rights in both Chile and Brazil would likely resolve the stand off.
  • Read more 05SEP2013: LAN Colombia to become oneworld affiliate from October
    LAN Colombia (4C, Bogotá) will become an affiliate member of Oneworld effective October 1, the alliance has announced. The Colombian carrier thereby becomes the latest member of the LATAM Group to join oneworld following in the footsteps of LAN Argentina (4M, Buenos Aires Aeroparque), LAN Ecuador (XL, Quito Int'l) and LAN Perú (LP, Lima). As part of Chilean regulatory conditions applied to the 2011 merger of LAN Airlines (LA, Santiago de Chile Int'l) and TAM Linhas Aéreas (JJ, São Paulo Congonhas) to form LATAM, the group's Brazilian partner will be required to leave Star Alliance to join oneworld; a move slated for sometime in 2Q 2014. TAM's Paraguayan affiliate, TAM Airlines (PZ, Asuncion), will also become part of oneworld. Launched in late 2011 following LAN Airlines' acquisition of Aires (4C, Bogotá), LAN Colombia operates six A320-200s, five B737-700s and nine Dash 8-200s on a route network that primarily focuses on the Colombian domestic market but which also covers Brazil, Chile and the United States.
  • Read more 01SEP2013: LAN Argentina/ORSNA row about AR's Chilean, Brazilian traffic rights
    LAN Argentina (4M, Buenos Aires Aeroparque) and its stand-off with the Argentine airports authority (Organismo Regulador del Sistema Nacional de Aeropuertos - ORSNA) over a pending eviction from a vital MRO hangar at Buenos Aires Aeroparque, is centred on a lack of reciprocity in the awarding of Aerolineas Argentinas (AR, Buenos Aires Ezeiza) rights to serve both Chilean and Brazilian domestic routes, the Mercopress reports. Speaking in Buenos Aires last week, Argentina's Interior and Transport minister, Florencio Randazzo, said LATAM (LAN's parent company) "should contribute with reciprocity, that is that Chile and Brazil authorize our flag carrier to make domestic flights in those countries”, said Randazzo. Deputy Minister of the Economy & Public Finances, Axel Kicillof, added that the government's objective is to defend the national carrier and its interests. “For the Argentine economy it wouldn’t be at all negative to be able to have hangars in Brazil and Chile so that our flag carrier Aerolineas can operate domestic flights in those countries”, he said. On a meeting held last week with LAN’s Vice President, Enrique Cueto, Mr Kicillof noted that it was "cordial" with LAN being asked to "join" Buenos Aires in its quest to secure domestic Brazilian and Chilean traffic rights.
  • Read more 28AUG2013: Judge suspends ORSNA's eviction of LAN pending an inquest
    LAN Argentina (4M, Buenos Aires Aeroparque) has had its impending eviction from an MRO hangar at Buenos Aires Aeroparque by the Argentine airports authority (Organismo Regulador del Sistema Nacional de Aeropuertos - ORSNA) temporarily suspended after Argentine judge, Claudia Rodríguez Vidal, questioned its legality. Announcing her decision just hours before the notice was due to expire, Judge Vidal ruled that the government, through ORSNA, had not given LAN enough time to consider its position on the matter. As such, the "precautionary measure" now allows the carrier to continue its normal operations at the Aeroparque pending a Federal Government report on the dispute due within the next 5 days. Thereafter, Judge Vidal is expected to issue a final ruling next week. LAN Argentina has stated that the loss of the MRO hangar would undoubtedly lead to the suspension of its operations. Such is the gravity of the dispute that the CEO of LAN Airlines (LA, Santiago de Chile Int'l) itself, Ignacio Cueto, has been in Buenos Aires for meetings with bureaucrats from Cristina Kirchner's government in an effort at reaching a solution.
