Resting in the Santiago basin – a valley shaped like a bowl – is the capital city of Chile, Santiago.
This growing city was founded by the Pedro de Valdivia, a Spanish Conquistador, conqueror, as the City of Santiago del Nuevo Extremo in 1541. Many people walking through the busy city will notice the city’s cultural and musical energy. Others will notice Santiago’s financial liveliness because of many multinational corporations having their regional headquarters in this bustling city. And other people will see that the city is very reminiscent to its Spanish history through its array of 19th-century neoclassical architecture.
It is clear why people would head to the 5th largest city on the South American continent. It is also apparent why people would avoid landing at the country’s busiest international airport at the end of the Andes mountains, Comodoro Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport [IATA: SCL/ICAO: SCEL] when they can taxi into a lavish FBO instead.

An Unbeatable Location
Passengers staying in Santiago can quickly reach their destination with the center of the city only being a 15-minute drive away and the business center just 20-minutes away.
SCEL is a great stopping point for travelers flying into New Zealand or Australia. This is because Santiago is the gateway to all flights heading to Oceania – a geographic location that is made up of Australia, Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia. Plenty of European carriers like Alitalia or British Airways use SCEL as a stopping point from their home hub [Rome-Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport and London Heathrow Airport] to the Oceania region.
For Your Aircraft
Santiago’s airport has a 12,467-ft [3,800 meters] runway that can accommodate various types of aircrafts. Aircraft maintenance and servicing are possible at this location, but a request would have to be put through.
All flights flying into Santiago’s airport need to acquire a PPR [Prior Permission Required] and a landing permit. Our Jetex team can apply for any permits required and can arrange for a parking space for the aircraft.
