LATAM Airlines begins implementing its new Premium Business Class this month. The service includes a new culinary concept and a reinvented style of service. Premium Business is available on all LATAM international flights on Boeing 777 aircraft.
“From listening to our customers, we understand they want more options, flexibility and personalization to be able to travel according to their needs. We are investing over half a billion dollars in cabin renovations, digital tools and improving our service to offer each of our customers a tailored travel experience,” said Paulo Miranda, vice president of customers, LATAM Airlines Group. “Our new Premium Business service offers more comfort and privacy so that our passengers can rest and arrive refreshed at their destination. We have transformed our service, starting with a new culinary concept as well as new cabin crew protocols and service elements.”
The new culinary concept was designed by Chilean and Brazilian chefs with menus showcasing South American ingredients and wines.
The new class is intended to allow travelers to arrive in their destination more refreshed and relaxed and so the new service protocols dictate fewer cabin crew interruptions. Passengers also enjoy new premium pillows, linens and mattresses with temperature regulation and pressure point technology.
Premium Business seats provide direct aisle access. Seats recline 180 degrees and feature ample storage space and the latest in-seat entertainment technology.
Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
