CAE and LATAM Airlines Group have agreed to extend their training partnership contract for a further six years until 2030.

The renewed deal will see CAE continue to train more than 4,000 LATAM Airlines pilots and 9,000 cabin crew members per year at CAE training centres in South America.

“We are pleased to extend our longstanding partnership with LATAM Airlines Group until the end of 2030 and we thank them for their continued trust in CAE to provide pilot and cabin crew training,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions.

LATAM Airlines Group has 317 aircraft in its fleet, including the Boeing 787, Airbus A350, A321 and A320neo.

It employs over 41,000 people worldwide and operates approximately 1,300 flights per year to 143 destinations.

“CAE has been a valued partner over the past 18 years, providing initial and recurrent training for our pilots and cabin crew,” said Dario Pavez, Senior Director of Operations, LATAM Airlines Group.

“With this extended agreement, our crew members will continue to benefit from world-class training.”
