LATAM Cements Award-Winning Position on a Global Scale

LATAM Airlines recognised by passengers at Global Traveller and APEX with two prestigious industry awards

LATAM Airlines has been distinguished globally by passengers and consumers in two of the most recognised awards ceremonies in the airline industry.

Following an online survey carried out by Global Traveller magazine readers, LATAM was awarded “Best Airline in South America” in the 18th edition of the Global Traveller GT Tested Reader Survey Awards. In addition, APEX Passenger Choice also awarded LATAM four out of five stars in its ranking of global airlines, based on customer votes of more than 600 airlines around the world.

“In an especially challenging year for the industry, our commitment to our customers continues to remain strong thanks to the effort of our workers. We particularly value and appreciate these recognitions because they come directly from our passengers. These awards encourage us and challenge us to continue working to bring their dreams to their destination,” said Paulo Miranda, Vice President of Clients at LATAM Airlines Group.

The GT Tested Reader Survey Awards was distributed to more than two million readers in an open question format and passengers were required to vote for their favourite airline in South America. APEX was based on customer ratings of more than 600 airlines around the world, which categorised just under one million flights on a maximum five-star scale. LATAM Airlines Group received a four-star rating.

These recognitions are in addition to other awards received earlier this year by Skytrax highlighting LATAM’s safety and hygiene standards. Additionally, the group recently ranked fourth worldwide in Standard & Poor’s Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) and as a result positioned itself as the airline with the best sustainability performance in the American and European continents.

LATAM offers more flights and destinations than any other airline group in Latin America, reaching more than 125 destinations in 16 countries, including domestic flights in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.

LATAM continues to reinforce safety and hygiene measures throughout its operations, following the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Air Transport Association (IATA), and the health authorities of the countries where it operates.
