I am checking out flights to Antofagasta. I am US citizen, in past I have flown from:
Panama City, Copa Airlines to Santiago
Santiago, SkyAir or LANair to Antofagasta
This flight is good except I had to buy the domestic Chile flight separately.
Now I am checking flight that is purchased as one set from multiple airlines:
Houston USA, Continental air to San Jose Costa Rica
San Jose, LACSA to Lima Peru
Lima, TRANS AMERICAN AIRLINES - TACA PERU to Antofagasta
I am surprised they have international flight directly to Antofagasta as it such a small airport. Is Chile immigration located in Antofagasta or do they have remote immigration office in Lima? (as odd as that sounds I have seen this type of remote immigration before)
Anyone have experience with this proposed flight plan, please let me know if you had good/bad experiences. Perhaps also a suggestion on amount of time required at each stop in case Lima or San Jose are troublesome places to connect.
