Tour Operator Gives Latest Update on Chile

Condor Travel, a Chile specialist, released the latest update on the situation in Chile following an 8.8-magnitude earthquake that rocked the country more than a week ago.

The Santiago Airport has started national and international flights last Wednesday and is gradually increasing its operations.

Special procedures are in place at the moment and travelers are asked to report to the airport three hours ahead of their departure flights. Condor’s transfer services is working with the assistance of its guides provided to all clients. The airport highway to Santiago as well as the roads of Santiago and surroundings are in good condition.

The popular Atacama Desert in the north of Chile had not been affected by the earthquake at all and all programs are being offered as usual. Same counts for the pristine Easter Island, which lies 2,300 miles from the coast as well as for the exciting area of the lake region, North and South Patagonia with the famous “Torres del Paine National Park”.

Hotels and restaurants in Santiago have not suffered any major damage. At times small paint jobs and repair works were needed which have either been completed already or in some cases are still underway. City tours of Santiago and to Valparaiso are being offered as usual. Some charming vineyards had to be closed for renovation in the areas of the “Colchagua” and “Maipo Valley”. However, Condor has alternatives to offer.
