SummaryNational carrier Air India is exploring options at signing a codeshare agreement with LATAM Airlines Group, South America's largest airline conglomerate, to connect India to South American hubs like Lima and Santiago from Sydney, while destinations like Rio De Janerio and Sao Paulo could be connected via Air India's European hubs of London and Paris.

direct flight is expected to be launched next year. Currently, while India has bilateral air services agreements with Brazil, Chile and Argentina, there are no direct flights between India and Latin America.

Connectivity is important for doing business with the region. While airlines are looking for code sharing with our national airlines, it is important that Air India should be flying there, Ravi said.

Indian airlines (read Air India) can perhaps have direct connection to Panama, where we have large Indian community," he said .
