Starting sometime next summer Bostonians will finally be able to fly nonstop to Brazil’s largest city, Sao Paulo, according to this article posted today.
Chile-based LATAM Airlines Group is smart to cash in on the more than 60,000 Brazilian residents who now call Massachusetts home (making the Bay State the second most populous Brazilian born population in the United States).
The announcement by LATAM continues a trend with Logan Airport, which is neither home nor hub for any single US carrier making it a potentially lucrative market for airlines that can come in and dominate a particular route. Traditional US carriers currently require Bostonians to travel to hub cities like Atlanta for Delta, Miami for AA and Chicago for United, before boarding night fliights. The new nonstop route will likely be very popular.
LATAM said it plans to offer flights from Boston Logan International Airport by next summer, subject to regulatory approval.
