Santiago, June 5, 2018 – LATAM Airlines Groups informs the impact of the recent strike carried out by truck drivers in Brazil, who blocked several accesses to its domestic territory, causing an aviation fuel shortage in the majority of the country’s airports.

Despite it being an issue unrelated to the Company, LATAM Airlines Brazil had to cancel a total of 151 domestic flights between May 25 and 30, of a total of 3,422 scheduled flights, as well as not being able to carry roughly 1,500 tons of cargo. The Company estimates that the impact of this contingency amounted to US$13 million, including all the measures carried out to minimize the disruption to its passengers.

LATAM apologizes for the resulting inconveniences to its passengers, and assures that it worked the whole time with a team dedicated exclusively to insure the continuity of its operations.
