LATAM prepares for reorganization, eyes profitability
LATAM group released a five-year business plan with promises to exit financing soon and return to profitability by 2024.
The plan was laid out in the group's press release published on September 9, 2021. It includes recovery predictions, as well as operational and financial plans through 2026.
The company claims it has received “several” financing offers from its “most significant claimholders”, each offer exceeding $5 billion.
The financing, LATAM explains, comes in anticipation of recovery and especially ramp-up of Brazil’s domestic travel, which is projected to reach 2019 levels in early 2022.
LATAM expects its total revenues to increase 13% by 2026, mostly on the basis of unprecedented growth in air cargo.
The negotiations on the company's reorganization plan are ongoing, the release states.
Recently LATAM went on a purchasing spree reorganizing its fleet, aiming to make it cost-effective in the long run.
