The fabric for the seats in the short-haul cabins was designed incorporating four colours and two different leather textures. For the new long-haul cabins, the fabric incorporates more cloth elements to create maximum comfort for longer flights.

Beginning in 2015, LATAM Airlines Group will incorporate two new aircraft models into the long-haul fleet with the Boeing 787-9 and Airbus A350-900 that will feature the new cabin design and offer two classes of service, Economy and Premium Business.

The new unified cabin design is one of the most tangible examples of standardisation between the two airlines since the merger.  With a focus on a comfortable and welcoming experience, the design was inspired by South America’s colours and textures combining elegant natural tones that reflect the passionate culture and warmth of the region.

Jerome Cadier, Marketing Vice-President, LATAM Airlines Group, said, “We hope our passengers continue to enjoy the experience of flying with LAN and TAM and that they share the same passion we have for flying”.

LATAM Airlines Group collaborated on this project with prestigious international design consulting firm Priestmangoode, known for its vast experience in the aviation, railway and hotel industries among others.

With the new cabin design, LAN and TAM strengthen their global presence and their leadership in bringing the best of South America to the world.

“Every element was carefully selected and designed to include the best features of the countries in the region to create a world class project. With these objectives in mind, the rich wood textures of the Amazon are present in several elements throughout the cabin, including part of the floor and details on the seats. The fabric, textures, colours, and patterns are reminiscent of the beautiful landscapes of our region. Even the iconic beaches of Ipanema were a source of inspiration for the cabins,” said Cadier.

LAN Airlines now operates sevenone-stop flights each week from Sydney to Santiago, Chile, the gateway to South America. Onward connections to over 115 destinations in South America are operated by both LAN Airlines and TAM Airlines. LAN also offers non-stop flights between Sydney and Santiago every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday in a codeshare partnership with oneworld partner airline Qantas.
