Santiago Airport International Flight Connection Information

Jump to last reply

I am flying on LAN from El Calafate to Buenos Aires to Santiago on one ticket that arrives in Santiago at 8:20pm. I have, on another ticket, a flight on AA (LAN code share flight ) from Santiago to New York City that departs at 10:25pm. I have a few questions:

- Will I be able to make this connection?
- Can I check my bags directly to NYC in El Calafate?
- Do I need to go through passport control in Santiago again? I will already have paid the reciprocity fee.
- Will I need to pick up my bags from the 1st flight after passport control and customs and checkin the bags for the next flight?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
