LAN quits Toronto


South America’s LAN Airlines will suspend operations out of Toronto, effective April 1, 2011. According to officials, travelers will still be able to travel to South America through partner airlines that offer connecting service to LAN Airlines and its affiliate’s gateways in New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

“Our strong connection to the Canadian market remains thanks to our partnership with the oneworld alliance, which will allow passengers to seamlessly connect from Canada to our gateways in the US,” said Pablo Yunis, vice president for North America and the Caribbean, LAN Airlines.

Passengers who have already purchased tickets for travel on LAN Airlines from Toronto Pearson International Airport for travel after April 1 may call customer service at 1-866-435-9526 to update their travel arrangements.
