Best Flight Options to Punta Arenas, Chile

Best Flight Options to Punta Arenas, Chile

  1. Anonymous

    Traveling from Austin TX to Punta Arenas, Chile in Oct. Santiago or Buenos Aires are both options to transit through (in either direction).

    I want to redeem Ultimate Rewards points – what airline would have the best routing and inflight experience in Business or First?

    Well, I’d pick Santiago to transit through for starters. Buenos Aires would require an extra connection, no airlines fly Buenos Aires to Punta Arenas. ([URL][/URL])

    With that said, airlines flying to South America tend to not be over-the-top glamorous.

    I’d look at Star Alliance options like United and fly on United (lie flat seats, but not direct aisle access) or Avianca (would require an extra connection, not lie flat seats)

    You could also look at Korean (has to be booked round-trip), and could fly on Aeromexico (787 with lie flat seats) or Delta (767 with lie flat seats).

    Honestly, I’d aim for whatever has available space and a one-stop connection!
