SANTIAGO, Chile. —  Now QANTAS operates three times a week non-stop flights between Sydney and Santiago de Chile with reconfigured Boeing 747s. The airline connects in Santiago with “Oneworld sister carrier” LAN to Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. After the fall of the socialist government of President Salvador Allende in September 11th 1973, thousands of Chileans migrated to Australia. Today this ethnic community has an easier way to visit their relatives and friends in Chile.
