Latam Airlines Brazil is operating its state-of-the-art Airbus A350XWB on its five weekly services between Johannesburg and São Paulo. The aircraft can carry 30 passengers in premium business and 309 passengers in economy (including 18 Latam+ seats), and represents a 59% capacity increase on the route.
Latam began flying from São Paulo to SA in October 2016 with three flights a week, increasing to five flights per week in 2017. From Latam’s São Paulo/Guarulhos hub, it serves more than 33 destinations nonstop throughout South America as well as 14 cities in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia.
Latam is the first airline group in the Americas to operate the Airbus A350XWB, which generates up to 25% fewer CO2 emissions and reduces noise levels by up to 30% compared with older aircraft.
“With added capacity, increased space and the latest in cabin comfort, more passengers will enjoy our São Paulo —– Johannesburg service and access our unrivalled network throughout South America,” said Guido Blanco, commercial director UK and SA at Latam Airlines Group.

On-board Latam’s Airbus A350XWB, premium business passengers can enjoy spacious lie-flat seats and a gourmet food and wine menu that showcases Latin American produce. Seats in all cabin classes have individual touchscreen in-flight entertainment systems offering a wide selection of movies, TV series, music and games.
