A LAN flight from Lima in Peru yesterday (Sunday) was the first commercial landing at Chile’s Santiago Airport following the huge earthquake in the South American country on Saturday.
According to a release from LAN, operations at the airport have been severely disrupted and there has been major damage to the airport terminal.
