The start of the Brasília-Sinop route shows once again that we continue to observe the needs of our customers and the opportunities available in the market. Although taxes have been a challenge in recent months, we have remained firm in our investment plan in the Brazilian aviation sector, where we have reached 50 airports served throughout the country. This is the highest number of destinations served in the history of LATAM Brasil.”- Aline Mafra – Director of Sales and Marketing, LATAM Brasil
