Chilean Airlines

Several international airlines service the Chilean market in addition to Chile's own domestic airlines.

Chile's Airlines

Chile has a few homegrown airlines that provide the majority of domestic flights. I personally flew Lan Airlines and was very pleased with their service.

International Airlines

These airlines have international flights to and from Chile. Most flights originate or end at Santiago's International Airport. Several of these are smaller carriers that serve South American countries.

I personally flew American Airlines between Miami and Santiago on my trip to Chile. Most carriers flying out of the United States will depart late in the evening to deliver you into Santiago by morning. The flight from Miami was about 8 hours. The same is also true on the return trip: you fly over night and arrive by morning.

On flights leaving Chile, there is an airport tax of US$18, or the equivalent in Chilean Pesos. On domestic flights airport tax is included in the airline ticket.
