“In July, we brought back our eight destinations in Europe and are now close to resuming service to our four destinations in the United States. As we predicted from the beginning of the pandemic, the return of the international routes would come at a different rate from the domestic market. The most important thing is that this is occurring sustainably, as people resume their plans for longer distanced international travel.”

The Guarulhos – Boston flight will operate three times weekly, on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday onboard the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. The aircraft seats 300 passengers in a three-cabin configuration, 30 Premium Business seats, 57 Economy+ seats, and 213 economy seats. The flight will last 9 hours and 45 minutes and will take off from GRU at 22:50 local time. On Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, LATAM will operate the return flight to GRU which will depart from Boston at 17:30 local time. Tickets are already on sale on LATAM’s website.
