Air transport starts slow recovery after Chile quake

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.

It appears that several flights landed at Santiago Airport on Sunday but that outgoing flights have yet to resume.
