LONDON, UKThe British leisure carrier Virgin Atlantic and South American full-service operator LATAM announced a new codeshare, which will enable Virgin Atlantic passengers to fly seamlessly to Brazil.

Customers booking through Virgin Atlantic are now able to travel from Heathrow direct to São Paulo as well as connecting onwards onto 12 domestic airports in Brazil including Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, and Florianopolis. Customers traveling from São Paulo to London Heathrow will also have the option to smoothly connect to Virgin Atlantic’s rest of the world destinations through Terminal 3 including Tel Aviv, Delhi, and Hong Kong.

“We’re incredibly excited to launch this new codeshare partnership with LATAM Airlines," Juha Jarvinen, Chief Commercial Officer at Virgin Atlantic, said.

“As we recover from the pandemic, partnerships are more important than ever, and we look forward to building on the incredibly successful interline relationship we have had in place for a number of years. We also see opportunities beyond Brazil and look forward to expanding our relationship even further to serve destinations throughout South America including Peru and Colombia," Jarvinen added.
