EFLIGHT 2019-MAX (LA1296) Flies into total solar eclipse (TSE), 12,500 mtr over Pacific Ocean - A special LATAM flight that departed from Easter Island offered over 50 of the leading experts and enthusiasts of eclipses the opportunity to experience total darkness for more than eight minutes, versus the 2.5 minutes it was visible from the ground. Dr. Glenn Schneider, astronomer at the University of Arizona and a passenger on the flight, recorded his 35th total solar eclipse, a Guinness World Record. As part of LATAM's commitment to sustainability, the company will offset the flight’s emissions through a reforestation project in the Peruvian Amazon.

Rapa Nui, Chile - July 3, 2019. At 13:19 (UTC-6) flight EFLIGHT 2019-MAX (LA1296) flew into the shadow of the total solar eclipse (TSE), 12,500 meters over the Pacific Ocean. Traveling at a speed of 900 kilometers per hour, LATAM’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner “chased” the path of the eclipse, enabling passengers onboard to experience total darkness for over eight minutes; three times more than the two minutes and 30 seconds it was visible from the ground. "At LATAM, we are committed to showcasing the best of Latin America to the world and we are proud that the leading eclipse chasers chose us as the airline to follow the path of this phenomenon on a unique flight over the Pacific that took off from remotest place on the planet, Easter Island," said Yanina Manassa, Customer Service Director, LATAM Airlines Group. The flight departed from Easter Island’s Mataveri airport at 09:50 local time, heading northwest for two hours and 30 minutes to position itself in the TSE’s trajectory on an eastbound flight path, before returning to the island with a total journey time of five hours and 30 minutes.
