On July 2, 2017, LATAM Airlines Brazil will launch a direct service connecting Orlando, Florida with Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The nonstop service from Orlando International Airport (MCO) to Tom Jobim International Airport (GIG) will operate three times per week. The flight from Orlando will depart on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 10:10 p.m. The return flight will depart on Wednesdays and Fridays, at 10:50 p.m., and on Sundays at 11:05 a.m. All flights will be operated on a 221-passenger Boeing 767 aircraft featuring 30 Premium Business seats and 191 Economy seats.
