«Recycle your trip»: sorting and proper disposal of waste.

The implementation of the in-flight service on the 33 domestic routes operated by LATAM Airlines nationwide will increase the monthly tons of waste generated by the operation.

Faced with this problem and in line with the Group’s sustainability strategy, which aims to eliminate single-use plastic by 2023 and to be a zero waste to landfill Group by 2027, the airline implemented the «Recycle your flight» initiative, which aims to ensure the classification of waste on the ground for its use or proper disposal.

In this way, through an exhaustive review of the waste classification and disposal processes in each of the airports where the airline operates, it is guaranteed that all waste generated is managed correctly in each of the cities where it is landed.

And in those cases where the terminal does not have a management system, the waste is being shipped again in the cargo compartment to be disposed of in Bogota, upon arrival at El Dorado Airport, where 65% of the waste is currently used and 100% is managed.
