Flights from Santiago to Easter Island

We're planning to fly from Santiago to EI on 2/7 or 2/28/12 and the cheapest flight we can find is $1612 round trip. We've seen flights as low as $600 on other dates. Is there a chance our dates will come down in price or is $1612 the normal cost for that time of year?

There is a large difference between high season and low season tickets for EI but you should be able to get it cheaper than that. If you buy the ticket in conjunction with a LAN ticket to/from Chile it is much cheaper as part of the whole. But also the tickets sold in Chile, available to all, are cheaper than those sold through the website if you are accessing it from North America. If you get a local Chilean travel agency to purchase the tickets they should come out cheaper.

Thanks. We had talked to a tour guide in Santiago who didn't offer to get the tickets for us. Maybe we'll talk to her again or try a different guide.

Most Chileans are not aware of LAN's gouge of persons who purchase LAN tickets outside of Chile.

Propose an appealing commission to make it worth their while (assuming they are a legit agency whom you can trust with your credit card info).

When you do get tickets booked, please check every so often for schedule changes especially the nearer you get to flight date. Do not rely on anyone to do this for you.

I just cancelled my plans, mid-booking. LAN Airfare jumped nearly 30% from yesterday to today. I can't justify the expense this year. :(

Hi,

Dancing Molly said it best... AND the dates you choose fall on the dates of the festival (BIG TIME HIGH SEASON!).
