Qatar Airways Gains Approval to Purchase Latam Stake

Late last week, Brazil’s competition regulator Cade approved Qatar Airways’ stake purchase in Latam Airlines. Earlier this year in July, Qatar Airways agreed to acquire up to 10 percent of Latam’s shares, granted they moved forward with a $613 million capital increase.

Around the same time, GBTA’s Nancy Tudorache had an opportunity to chat with Latam Airlines’ Pablo Chiozza at the GBTA Convention Broadcast Studio. The two discussed the LAN and TAM merger and how Latam Airlines came to be, in addition to the airline’s global focus and top priorities. Pablo mentioned their clients are a top priority, stating “this industry is all about serving the client.”
