TAM and LAN transfer to Sao Paulos T3

Last week TAM and LAN began transferring their international operations to the new Terminal 3 at Guarulhos International Airport, in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

TAM will also begin transferring its domestic operations from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2.

The move will provide passengers with greater comfort and convenience, while also positioning Guarulhos Airport as the largest international hub of the LATAM Airlines Group. The two airlines have carefully planned the transition and there are no changes to the scheduled arrival and departure times of flights.

The first stage of this process consisted of transferring, on October 8, all operations for long-haul flights from/to North America and Europe from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3. The next day (October 9), it was the turn of all operations involving short-haul flights from/to countries in South America. And lastly, on October 10, TAM's domestic flight operations transferred from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2, Wing D.

By the end of the month, the first LATAM Airlines VIP Lounge (and the largest in Guarulhos Airport) will be inaugurated in the new terminal. The new 1,835m² lounge can accommodate 450 people and will be available to all member airlines of the oneworld alliance. The three lounges maintained by TAM in Terminals 1 and 2 will be deactivated once the airline moves to the new terminal. Until the new lounge is launched, customers can use the GRU VIP lounge located in Terminal 3 and the American Airlines VIP lounge located in Terminal 2.
