International and domestic flights are gradually resuming in Chile, following Feb. 27’s magnitude 8.8 earthquake, which caused structural damage to the passenger terminal at Santiago International Airport.

Starting March 2, and continuing until March 5, domestic flights are resuming, with a limited schedule between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.

International flights, also with a limited schedule, are operating between 8:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. A temporary makeshift terminal has been set up in tents, to process departing passengers.

During this period, all arriving international flights will stop over in another Chilean city prior to landing in Santiago, so passengers can clear Chilean customs.

Beginning March 5, domestic and international flights will be operating 24 hours.

International flight departures will move to the domestic-flights area of the current terminal.

International-arriving passengers, including incentive travel groups, will clear Chilean customs and immigration in a makeshift facility set up in tents to the west of the current terminal.

Contact airlines for updated information on flight schedules.
