Santiago (Chile), February 9, 2021 - LATAM Airlines Group reports its operational estimate for February, which could reach 35% (measured in available seat kilometers - ASK) compared to the same period of the previous year. The figure is lower than that announced for January, in which the operation reached 39.8% of previous year’s capacity, in a scenario dominated by increased government restrictions on air transport worldwide.

All projections are subject to the evolution of the pandemic, as well as to travel restrictions in the countries where LATAM operates.
During January 2020, traffic (measured in revenue passenger kilometers - RPK) was 32.8% in relation to the same period of the previous year. This estimate considered a passenger operation of 39.8% (measured in available seat kilometers - ASK) compared to the same month last year, therefore, the load factor decreased 14.9 percentage points to 70.3%.
With regard to the cargo operation, the load factor was 60.4%, 10.1 percentage points above what was registered during the same period of the previous year.
