Article nameWill LATAM be handing out face masks to passengers?

No, not at present, as this is determined by the health authorities. However, we are taking some measures on our flights, such as:

  • We have implemented special cleaning procedures for airplanes where a suspicious case is detected.
  • We have improved our stock of personal protection items within the airplane that will be used according to protocol if a suspicious case arises.
  • We have added hand sanitizer in all our airplane bathrooms.
  • Our airplanes have an air recycling system that recycles airplane air every 3 minutes using HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters, which capture viruses and particles.
