Chile Update 2

by Hidden Trails 03/08/2010
The city of Santiago is at 98% back to normal with virtually all basic services re-established and only small areas of the suburbs still without electricity.
Santiago Airport is now operating at 70% of its normal capacity according to the airport authorities (DGAC). All arrivals and departures are operated via the domestic terminal facilities but we expect the main international building to re-open this week.
All of our clients on the ground have been able to continue with their programs and have been flying both domestically and internationally with only minor disruptions and delays.
We are working with clients arriving in the coming weeks to make any necessary adjustments to their itineraries, particularly if they were planning to visit the wine country, which is the one tourist destination that suffered significant damage.
The areas south of Santiago (which sustained the most damage) between Talca and Concepción is receiving help from the local authorities along with foreign governments including the US, Europe, Peru, Brazil, and Argentina to name only a few.
It is important to note that none of the areas most seriously affected are typically part of client itineraries.
Thank you again, not only from Hidden Trails, but the country itself!
