Copa America lands airline partner for 2015 tournament

The LATAM Airlines Group has reached an agreement for its TAM and LAN companies to serve as the official airlines of the 2015 Copa America.

TAM Viagens and Lantours will also be the official tour operators for the national team football tournament in Chile, offering packages for the host cities including flights, hotels and match tickets.

LATAM covers more than 115 destinations across South America and its partnership with the Copa America was negotiated by the Traffic Sports agency.

Ivan Martinho, commercial director of Traffic Sports, said: “Without a doubt, to have the partnership of the commercial aviation group industry leader on the continent is great news for the competition. We will work hard to ensure that all your marketing goals are reached or even exceeded.”

The 2015 Copa America takes place between June 11 and July 4.
