LAW-Latin American Wings to wetlease an Icelandair Boeing 757-200

LAW-Latin American Wings (Santiago) is planning to add a wetleased Boeing 757-200 from Icelandair.

This aircraft will arrive in Chile next October which will allow the airline to expand its operations from Santiago to Caracas in Venezuela, as well as later adding an extended route from Caracas to New York and Miami (subject to government approvals).

The new route from Santiago to Caracas will operate daily except on Wednesdays and Fridays, while Thursdays and Saturdays will be operated twice a day.

It is unclear how the currency problems in Venezuela will affect these plans.
