    SANTIAGO , CHILE and SAO PAULO, BRAZIL – August 13, 2010 – LAN Airlines S.A. (LAN) (NYSE: LFL/IPSA: LAN) and TAM S.A. (TAM) (BM&FBOVESPA: TAMM4/NYSE: TAM) today announced that they have entered into a non-binding MOU that outlines their intentions to combine their holdings under a single parent entity. The combination would create a new Latin American airline group that would offer seamless passenger and cargo service across the continent and around the world. The new group, to be known as LATAM Airlines Group, would include Lan Airlines and its affiliates in Peru, Argentina and Ecuador; Lan Cargo and its affiliates; TAM Lineas Aereas S.A.; TAM Mercosur and all other holdings of LAN and TAM. The transaction is subject to both parties entering into a binding definitive agreement and satisfaction of conditions, including corporate and shareholder approvals and actions and regulatory approvals.

    Each of the airlines in the group would continue to operate under their existing operating certificates and brands. The carriers would work to build a comprehensive network of international passenger flights and cargo services throughout the region. Growth enabled by the transaction would reach new destinations, create more opportunities for employees of both companies and more value creation for shareholders and would foster economic development and job growth in the home countries of the Group airlines and the countries they serve.
