Chile's Easter Island reopens to tourists

STORY: Visitors must be fully vaccinated and present a negative PCR test taken no more than 24 hours before boarding a domestic flight to the island. Tourists aboard international flights to the island must take an antigen test once they arrive.

LATAM airlines said it reopened the route from Santiago to Easter Island with flights on Thursdays and Saturdays and hopes to add more.

"LATAM will gradually increase the frequency of flights as sanitary conditions permit it," said Constanza Pizarro, LATAM's communications manager. "We're coordinating with authorities," she added.
