With government support, the program has facilitated the repatriation of passengers who have not been able to complete their journeys due to border closures and other travel restrictions in response the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.

On April 3, LATAM is planning another special flight, operated by an Airbus A320 aircraft, that will transport over 170 passengers to Santiago (Chile), beginning its journey in San José (Costa Rica), with stops in Havana (Cuba) and Quito (Ecuador).

Over the coming days, LATAM has at least another 10 repatriation flights planned, enabling passengers to return to Latin America from around the world, including: Miami-Lima, Guayaquil-Santiago, Johannesburg-São Paulo/Guarulhos, Sydney-Santiago and Frankfurt-Santiago.
