LATAM Express (Transporte Aéreo S.A.), previously known as LAN Express is a subsidiary of LATAM Chile. It operates some domestic and a few international routes for its parent. Its main base is Comodoro Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport, Santiago, Chile.[1]


The airline was formerly known as Ladeco and established in September 1958. Ladeco was acquired by LAN Chile in August 1995 following the approval of the Chilean Anti-monopolies Board. In October 1998 LAN Chile merged Ladeco with Fast Air.[1] The brand was merged into LAN Airlines in 2004. The airline was renamed LATAM Express as a result of LAN Airlines being renamed LATAM Chile in May 2016. The airline faced a long lasting strike that cancelled most of the flights in April 2018.
