Latam Airlines

LATAM Airlines Group S.A. is a Latin American airline holding company incorporated under Chilean law with its headquarters Santiago, Chile. The group also has offices in São Paulo, Brazil, with subsidiaries inArgentina, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay and Peru.

The airlines signed a non-binding agreement on 13 August 2010, a binding agreement on 19 January 2011,and papers to close the merger on 22 June 2012, with TAM shareholders agreeing to the takeover by LAN.Enrique Cueto, former CEO of LAN, is CEO of LATAM; Mauricio Rolim Amaro, formerly vice-chairman of TAM, is chairman.

The two airlines fly with separate liveries and certificates, a policy to be continued in the short term, but expect substantial synergies from merging their operations. However, in August 2015 it was announced that the two airlines would fully rebrand as LATAM, with one livery to be applied on all aircraft by 2018.
