Commercial air links between Chile and Brazil and the Falkland Islands are expected to resume next July according to Aviacionline, an air industry site that revealed it obtained the information through Cirium which specializes in aviation and travel data and analytics.

“The stop over in Cordoba, Argentina, apparently does figure in this first itinerary”

LATAM said it is “constantly assessing operations according to the evolution of the pandemic, including the resumption of the, to and from, Malvinas flights”, and when the moment comes, “the company will respect existing travel restrictions and the accords among countries”.

However the stopover in Cordoba is uncertain since the Argentine government has an international flights restrictions, and which since the beginning of the pandemic have been concentrated at Ezeiza airport.

It must be remembered that for Argentina the Falklands air link is a domestic flight, and “hopefully restrictions by next July will be more flexible”.

Likewise Latam Chile is also considering to begin the weekly air link with the Falklands from Santiago/Punta Arenas next July, with an Airbus A320 and a monthly call in Rio Gallegos, Argentina, according to Aviacionline.

    In a Fantasy Dream World only! No economic financial case for the Santiago-Punta-MPN Link until say Oct/Nov as No viable passenger demand due to the pandemic. Logical that border restrictions will be maintained until all Chile and Falklands vaccinated. And no stopover in an Argentine Airport until that country has it totally controlled either- and that looks unlikley anytime soon
    A flight from Brazil???!! Pure fantasy until at least some time in 2022 they way their President has the pandemic totally uncontrolled!
    Pure Fantasy. Hopefully Yes- come spring/summer when Chile -North America and Western Europe all vaccinated, that route could become viable and safe.

    think this is unusual thinking in the land of tomorrow: last july 2020, this july 2021, next july 2022.

    next July = July 2022 so that seems a resonable date for forward planning purposes.
