LATAM Ecuador, formerly LAN Ecuador (Aerolane Líneas Aéreas Nacionales del Ecuador S.A.), is a subsidiary of LATAM Airlines, based in Guayaquil, Ecuador.[1] Operates scheduled passenger services using leased LAN aircraft.[2]

History[edit]

LATAM Ecuador was established in July 2002 as LAN Ecuador and started operations on 28 April 2003. It is owned by Translloyd (55%) and LAN Airlines (45%).[2][3]

On 24 December 2008, LATAM Ecuador received approval to begin domestic operations, which were launched by the end of March 2009 with Airbus A318 aircraft.[4]

LATAM Airlines announced that the purchase of 26 Boeing 787's would be distributed between LATAM Chile, LATAM Perú, LATAM Argentina, and LATAM Ecuador. The number to enter the LAN Ecuador fleet is unknown at this time, but it is likely the Boeing 787's will replace the ageing Boeing 767-300's.[5]
