Lesbians Love Latin American LAN Airlines

MTV’s LOGO has nominated LAN Airlines for the coveted “Best Airline” award in their second annual TripOut Gay Travel Awards. LAN Airlines is the only non-U.S. airline to be nominated for this accolade. American Airlines, Delta, Jet Blue, Southwest and Virgin America are also nominated.

MTV’s LOGO has nominated LAN Airlines for the coveted “Best Airline” award in their second annual TripOut Gay Travel Awards. LAN Airlines is the only non-U.S. airline to be nominated for this accolade. American Airlines, Delta, Jet Blue, Southwest and Virgin America are also nominated.

LAN Airlines Marketing Communications Manager, Megan Kat, was excited about the airline’s monumental nomination. “LAN Airlines is honored to be the only non-U.S. airline nominated for ‘Best Airline’ in Logo’s second annual TripOut Gay Travel Awards. LAN is South America’s leading international airline, offering award-winning service to and within South America from its gateways in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami and Toronto.”

Kat continued, “LAN provides extensive service to the top destinations in South America for LGBT travelers, including Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, Sao Paulo and Lima, as well as more exotic tourist destinations such as Iguazu Falls, Easter Island, Cuzco/Machu Picchu and the Galapagos. LAN is also a proud and active supporter of several important LGBT organizations, including IGLTA, NGLCC, IGLCC and San Francisco Pride.”

LAN became the first Latin American airline to advertise specifically to the LGBT community in 2009.

The Travel Channel’s Jimmy Im recently ventured off to Buenos Aires via LAN Airlines and shared the following video with LOGO for reference in the TripOut Awards. (Yes, he even went to a lesbian bar to scope out the scene!)

Consumer Ed Salvato shared, “LAN is a terrific airline for lesbian and gay travelers. With LGBT life blossoming throughout Latin America, it’s wonderful for LGBT travelers to have a gay-friendly South American airline connecting the hottest destinations in the region.”

Buenos Aires and the Brazilian area of Rio Grande do Sul are the most commonly visited cities in South America by the LGBT community.  In addition, if you are planning a trip to Latin America, consider iExplore’s Top 10 Gay and Lesbian Vacations – Latin America list highlighted below.
