LAN Peru will suspend flights at San Francisco International airport from 1 April 2014 after almost four years at the airport.

The Peruvian affiliate of LATAM Airlines Group will operate its last Lima-bound flight from the airport on 29 March.

LAN Peru operates thrice a week between San Francisco and Lima with Boeing 767 aircraft, schedules in Innovata show.

LATAM says its carriers will increase flight frequencies on the Los Angeles-Lima route to 14 times weekly as it continues to invest in its routes between North and South America. The airline group currently offers 13 weekly flights between the two cities.

"Our strong connection to the West Coast market remains thanks to our commitment to growing the operation out of Los Angeles along with a strong partnership with airline partners out of San Francisco, which will allow passengers to continue to seamlessly connect from the West Coast to the over 114 destinations that we serve in South America," says Pablo Chiozza, LATAM's vice president USA, Canada and Caribbean.
