TRAVELING TO AND FROM CHILE
Several foreign national airlines currently offer service to Chile. From the U.S., American Airlines and Delta offer daily service. Lan Chile, the Chilean National Airline, also offers daily
service. During our summer season, it may be difficult to secure last minute reservations. Plan and reserve early! Once your plans are formulated, check immediately with your travel agent to reserve
your flight. If you wish, we can put you in contact with a travel agent who specializes in South American Travel to allow you to obtain comparative fares. We also suggest that you review your passport to assure
that it is valid not only for your departure, but for your return as well. We encourage you to make a photocopy of your passport and keep it in a separate location.
The majority of foreign flights depart in the evening for Chile and arrive early in the morning at the Santiago International Airport. A one-time $100.00 entry fee is collected at customs. This
fee must be paid in cash and in U.S. Dollars. As you proceed toward customs, you will take an escalator downstairs. Turn to your left to pay this entry fee before proceeding to customs. After
receiving your luggage and clearing customs, exit to your left, then take the elevator to the third floor to the national flight ticket counters and gates where you’ll connect with your 90 minute flight to
Puerto Montt’s International Airport - El Tepual.
Your flight from Santiago will arrive in the late morning or early afternoon. You’ll be greeted in the Puerto Montt airport by our staff. For guests traveling on to El Patagon, we’ll
meet you in the El Tepual Airport to assist with your flight connection south where you will be greeted by our staff on your arrival. Those guests staying at Yan Kee Way, will be transferred to the
lodge. Similarly, at trips end, we’ll escort you to El Tepual airport from Yan Kee Way Lodge, where you’ll make your flight connection to Santiago and your return home. We will also meet those
of you returning from El Patagon to provide any assistance you may need to make your connections to Santiago.
