After two years without flights, the direct route between Santiago de Chile and Barcelona (Spain) is operational again. This was announced by the airline LEVEL, which will resume four weekly trips in 2022.
After a joint effort between the Chilean government and the low-cost flight company, the trips will resume at the beginning of the European autumn. This will allow for visitors from the “old continent” to escape the cold and make the most of the spring and summer in Chile.
Furthermore, from LEVEL they highlighted that Santiago is a city of great interest for business tourism, which adds to a wide cultural offer, historical heritage, and rich gastronomy.
As they pointed out, the Chilean capital is the gateway to the incredible landscapes and diverse nature in Chile: the Atacama Desert, Torres del Paine, Patagonia, and Rapa Nui are just some of the destinations sought by European tourists.
This is one of the efforts that the government is making to reactivate the tourism industry in Chile, an important pillar of the economy.
The Santiago-Barcelona route will resume operations on October 31st. The four weekly flights will be on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.
The airline indicated that the tickets are already available at www.flylevel.com and the other Iberia channels, with tickets starting at EUR $ 375 euros each way (about CLP $ 360,000), when you buy a return ticket.
According to official figures, before the pandemic in 2019, more than 540,000 tourists came from Europe to Chile. Out of them, more than 100,000 did it from Spain.
