Virgin Atlantic and LATAM Airlines Group have asked the US Department of Transportation (DOT) for authorisation to launch a codeshare agreement allowing to carry passengers between the United Kingdom, Chile, Peru, and Colombia via the United States. Virgin already has a codeshare agreement with LATAM Brazil.

Virgin Atlantic and LATAM Airlines revealed their plans to operate a codeshare agreement this week. Delta Air Lines invest in both carriers. Virgin Atlantic requested a blanket statement authorisation to display the LA code on flights operated by Virgin Atlantic in conjunction with foreign air transportation between points the United Kingdom via the UK and intermediate points to a point or points in the US and beyond, said the company.

Similarly, LATAM Airlines requested authorisation to display the VS code on flights operated by the company between points behind Chile, Peru and Colombia and intermediate points in the US and beyond. The codeshare services will not be available to any of the joint applicants’ passengers originating in or destined for points in the US. The US will only serve as transit points for traffic between the UK and Chile, Peru, and Colombia.
