HISTORY

Prior to its acquisition by LAN Chile

, the airline was known by its legal name, AERO 2000. LAN Argentina

became an affiliate member of the Oneworld

airline alliance on April 1, 2007. The airline is owned by LATAM Airlines Group

(49%) and Argentine investors (51%).

On August 28, 2013, an Argentinean judge blocked the government's plan to break a long term lease of hangar space to LAN in Aeroparque Jorge Newbery , that was seen as vital to the airline's operations.

As its parent company LAN Chile

agreed to pay more than $22 million in civil and criminal fines relating to a decade-old Argentine bribery case. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission said the fine of LATAM related to "improper payments it authorized during a dispute between the airline and its union employees in Argentina". LAN was accused of using an Argentine consultant to negotiate with unions on the company's behalf and paid the consultant via a sham contract that channelled funds to corrupt union officials. The scheme had violated the accounting provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the U.S. Justice Department said, and the airline agreed to pay a $12.75 million criminal penalty. It will pay a further $9.4 million, including interest, to settle the SEC's charges of inadequate accounting controls.
