HISTORY

EARLY YEARS

DH 60G Gipsy Moths in service with LAN-Chile, 1933

The airline was founded by Chilean Air Force
Chilean Air Force
Commodore Arturo Merino Benitez (after whom Santiago
Santiago
International Airport is named), and began operations on March 5, 1929 as LíNEA AEROPOSTAL SANTIAGO-ARICA (English: Postal Air Line Santiago-Arica), under the government of President Carlos Ibáñez del Campo
Carlos Ibáñez del Campo
. In 1932 It was rebranded as LíNEA AéREA NACIONAL DE CHILE (In English: National Air Line of Chile), using the acronym LAN-CHILE as commercial name. LAN-Chile's first fleet consisted of de Havilland Moth planes.

Merino Benitez was a strong defender of Chilean carriers exclusivity on domestic routes, differing from most Latin American countries which easily granted authorization on domestic flights to US-based Panagra , influenced by the propaganda made by Charles Lindbergh
Charles Lindbergh
's Atlantic crossing. Also because of this reason, US-built airplanes became more difficult to incorporate to LAN's fleet until the beginning of WWII. In 1936, 2 French Potez 560
Potez 560
airplanes were purchased while in 1938, 4 German Junkers Ju 86
Junkers Ju 86
Bs were incorporated to the fleet. During that same year, a joint cooperation agreement was established with Lloyd Aéreo Boliviano and the Peruvian carrier Faucett
Faucett
. Another agreement with Lufthansa
Lufthansa
was signed for flights to "> LAN- Chile
Chile
Douglas DC-3 added to the fleet in 1945

In 1940, given the restrictions imposed during WWII on access to spare parts for the Junker's BMW
BMW
engines, LAN- Chile
Chile
had to replace them for Lockheed Electra 10-A planes, adding in 1941 further Lockheed Lodestar C-60 and Douglas DC-3
Douglas DC-3
in 1945.

POST-WAR AND INTERNATIONAL SERVICE EXPANSION

On August 23, 1945, LAN- Chile
Chile
became a member of the newly formed IATA
IATA
. In October 1946, it started international service to Buenos Aires at Morón Airport and in 1947 to Punta Arenas
Punta Arenas
, Chile's most distant continental destination.

In December 1954, LAN- Chile
Chile
made its first commercial flight to Lima, Perú. On December 22, 1956 a LAN- Chile
Chile
Douglas DC-6
Douglas DC-6
made the world's first commercial flight over Antarctica
Antarctica
. Since then, all LAN's DC-6 fleet had painted on their fuselage "Primeros sobre la Antártica (First over Antarctica)", using this same aircraft type for its first commercial service to Miami International Airport
Miami International Airport
in 1958.

LAN- Chile
Chile
entered the jet era in 1963, purchasing three French Sud Aviation Caravelle VI-R , which initially flew to Miami, Guayaquil, Lima, Panama City and within Chile
Chile
to Punta Arenas, Puerto Montt
Puerto Montt
and Antofagasta. A LAN- Chile

In 1966, LAN- Chile
Chile
purchased from Lufthansa
Lufthansa
its first Boeing 707
Boeing 707
, in exchange for flying rights in the Lima- Santiago
Santiago
route. With this aircraft model, the company developed new long haul routes to the USA, Oceania and Europe. LAN- Chile
Chile
started on April 15, 1967, the route Santiago- John F. Kennedy International Airport
John F. Kennedy International Airport
and Santiago-Easter Island on April 8. In October 1967 a LAN- Chile
Chile
Sud Aviation Caravelle made the first ILS landing in South America
South America
at Lima's Jorge Chávez International Airport . On January 16, 1968, the Santiago-Easter Island flight was extended to Papeete-Faa\'a International Airport , in Tahiti
Tahiti
, French Polynesia
French Polynesia
. On September 4, 1974, this route was extended to Fiji.

In 1969, LAN- Chile
Chile
expanded its destinations to Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro
, Asunción
Asunción
and Cali
Cali
with new Boeing 727s . In 1970, with Boeing 707s LAN- Chile
Chile
opened its first transatlantic routes to Madrid–Barajas Airport , Frankfurt Airport
Frankfurt Airport
and Paris-Orly.

Since its inception and until 1970 the airline had its headquarters, main hub and maintenance center at Los Cerrillos Airport (ICAO: SCTI; IATA: ULC), in South-West Santiago. The restrictions imposed by the growing metropolitan area of Santiago
Santiago
and the need for modern, jet-era airport facilities that could safely accommodate both domestic and intercontinental flights, drove the need to relocate the Chilean capital's principal airport from Los Cerrillos in the denser southwest metropolitan region of Santiago
Santiago
to the more rural northwest metropolitan area. For this reason, Santiago
Santiago
International Airport in Pudahuel was built between 1961 and 1967, fully moving LAN-Chile's flights to this new airport in 1970. LAN Chile

Boeing 707
Boeing 707
flown by captain Jorge Jarpa Reyes made the world's first transpolar non-stop flight between South America
South America
( Punta Arenas
Punta Arenas
Airport ) and Australia (Sydney Kingsford-Smith Airport ).

In 1980, the company replaced its Boeing 727s with 737-200 Advanced on its domestic routes. In addition, the McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 , LAN Chile's first wide body jets, were added for use on routes to Los Angeles, Miami
Miami
and New York. That same year, the maintenance facilitites were relocated from Los Cerrillos to Arturo Merino Benitez Airport.

In 1985, LAN- Chile
Chile
implemented a program of flights around the world called Cruceros del Aire (“Air Cruises”), pioneers and unique in Latin America. The initial version included two flights per year (April 26 and September 26) on a Boeing 707
Boeing 707
named Three Oceans because it crossed the Atlantic, Indian and South Pacific oceans, visiting 18 different places. The aircraft was specially prepared for these flights. It had 80 seats in first class, thus providing passengers with ample room for their comfort. Eighty tourists were selected for a 31-day tour that included visits to the main cities of Africa, Asia and Oceania. Such flights were made until 1989, marketed according to their route under various names such as "Around the World", "Three Oceans", "Three Continents," Mediterranean "," East-West China "etc. Lan Chile's Boeing 767

In June 1986, Boeing 767-200ERs replaced the DC-10 fleet, with a new route to Montréal–Mirabel International Airport
Montréal–Mirabel International Airport
. In 1988, LAN Chile
Chile
started construction of its Maintenance Center at Santiago Airport and added a Boeing 747-100
Boeing 747-100
on lease from Aer Lingus
Aer Lingus
to its fleet during the summer season for its US flights.

PRIVATIZATION AND INTERNATIONALIZATION

LAN's logo (2004-2016)

In September 1989, the Chilean government privatized the carrier, selling a majority stake in the company to Icarosan and Scandinavian Airlines (49%), which subsequently sold its stake a few years later to local investors. Since 1994, major shareholders have been the Cueto Family and businessman Sebastián Piñera
Sebastián Piñera
(until 2010), who sold his shares when taking office as President of the Republic of Chile.

The approval from the Chilean Anti-Trust Authority resulted in the acquisition of the country's second largest airline Ladeco on August 11, 1995. In October 1998, Lan Chile
Chile
merged its cargo subsidiary Fast Air Carrier with Ladeco, forming LAN Express .

In 1998 LAN Airlines established a joint venture with Lufthansa called LLTT (Lufthansa-LAN Technical Training S.A.) with the aim to satisfy the needs for aircraft maintenance training in Latin America. LLTT is based at LAN's hangars in Comodoro Arturo Merino Benitez Airport. LLTT is the only A320 Maintenance Simulator (CMOS) training provider in Latin America.

In 2000, LAN Cargo
LAN Cargo
opened up a major operations base at Miami International Airport and currently operates one of its largest cargo facilities there.

In 2002, LAN Chile
Chile
started its internationalization process through LAN Perú
LAN Perú
and LAN Ecuador
Ecuador
.

In March 2004, Lan Chile
Chile
and its subsidiaries, LAN Perú
LAN Perú
, LAN Ecuador
Ecuador
, LAN Dominicana and LAN Express , became unified under the unique LAN brand and livery, eliminating each airline country name on the brands. On June 17, 2004, LAN Chile
Chile
changed its formal name to LAN AIRLINES (which was said to mean Latin American Network Airlines, even though the airline says LAN is no longer an acronym) as part of this re-branding and internationalization process; although, when founded in 1929, LAN originally meant "Línea Aérea Nacional" (National Airline).

In mid-2005, LAN opened its subsidiary LAN Argentina
Argentina
in Argentina
Argentina
and operates national and international flights from Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires
, and is the third largest local operator behind Aerolíneas Argentinas
Aerolíneas Argentinas
and Austral. This subsidiary is also under the single LAN brand.

As of August 1, 2006, LAN Airlines merged first and business classes of service into a single class, named Premium Business.

On October 28, 2010, LAN acquired 98% of the shares of AIRES

, the second-largest air carrier in Colombia. On December 3, 2011, AIRES started operating as LAN Colombia
Colombia
under the unified LAN livery.

On August 13, 2010, LAN signed a non-binding agreement with Brazilian airline TAM Airlines
TAM Airlines
to merge, and form the LATAM Airlines Group
LATAM Airlines Group
. The merger was completed on June 22, 2012. The Administrative Council of Economic Defense of Brazil
Brazil
(“CADE”) and the Tribunal de Defensa de la Libre Competencia (Chilean Court at Law for Antitrust) (“TDLC”) approved the merger subject to mitigation measures. The airlines have to surrender four daily São Paulo–Guarulhos International Airport slot pairs to other airlines willing to fly the Santiago- São Paulo

route, to give up membership in either Star Alliance (of which TAM Airlines
TAM Airlines
was a member) or Oneworld
