For the second consecutive year, LAN Airlines has been awarded the prestigious title of the “Leading Airline in South America” in the World Travel Awards 2013 (WTA).

The WTA, often referred to as the “Oscars of the travel industry”, awards excellence across the travel industry and is the ultimate travel accolade judged by travel professionals and consumers.

LAN Airlines was recognised for its achievement based on leadership and commitment as well as the implementation of a clear corporate vision, consistency in operation, and attentive customer service. Other considerations for the award included; quality of food service, most comfortable cabins, best Business Class service, best in-flight technology and entertainment, best VIP lounges and most on-time airline for arrivals and departures.

The World Travel Awards South & Central America Gala Ceremony 2013 was held at the Huacca Pucllana Temple in Lima, Peru and many industry representatives attended. LAN Peru President of the Board of Directors, Emilio Rodríguez Larraín, received the award on behalf of the LATAM Airlines Group.

“It is with great pride that we receive this important recognition from the World Travel Awards for the second year in a row as the Leading Airline in South America.  It is a direct reflection of our daily commitment to provide our passengers with the best possible travel experience,” said Fernanda Toro, Director of In-flight Experience, LATAM Airlines Group.

This is the fourth time that the Company has received this important recognition. In 2012 and 2007, LAN received the award in the same category as “Leading Airline in South America,” and in 2005 as “Leading Airline in South America in Business Class.”
