DALLAS — Today, LATAM (LA) announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and the full year 2023. The company reported a solid financial and operational performance during this period, with a net income of US$582 million.

For 2023, LA reported revenues of US$11.8 billion, a 23.9% increase compared to 2022. The company also achieved an adjusted operating margin of 11.3%. In the fourth quarter of 2023, LA’s revenues reached US$3.3 billion, an 18.5% increase compared to the same period in the previous year. This growth was mainly driven by the sustained increase in passenger revenues, which grew by 24.3% compared to the fourth quarter of 2022.
