image011LAN and TAM have launched a new Preferential Check-in area at the International Airport in Santiago, Chile, with the aim of renewing their premium spaces and to provide a better travel experience for passengers. The new lounge is set to open in the first half of 2015 and will be the largest in Latin America.

“Under the remodelling plan of Santiago airport, we understood it was important to offer our preferred passengers an exclusive new space with the highest standards of design, technology and comfort to optimise their wait and prepare them for their flight and next destination,” said Jerome Cadier, Vice President of Marketing LATAM Airlines Group.

About 30,000 passengers per month check in at the preferential counter, a demand that will increase to about 50,000 by 2020.image012

Located on the fourth floor on the west side of Santiago’s International Airport, the new space of over 600sqm in total, has 18 counters, kiosks for self-check-in, direct access to gates and will connect to the new LAN and TAM VIP Lounge.

The project design was jointly led by architects and designers of international prestige, including Chilean Mathias Klotz, in addition to architect Lillian Allen and a global view from Studio Putman, one of best design studios in the world, with its headquarters based in Paris.

The new preferential check-in and its amenities can be enjoyed by passengers travelling in First Class, Premium Business, Business and Premium Economy on LAN and TAM, as well as high category members of the LANPASS frequent flyer program (Comodoro Black, Comodoro, Premium Silver), and TAM Fidelidade (Black, Vermelho Plus, Vermelho), and the respective oneworld categories (Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire).
