Information for Visiting Astronomers

In case of different flight timetables passengers should consider that the transportation will leave La Silla, at least, 3:15 hours before their flight departure time. For this reason, passengers are recommended to take the time to double check their flight departure times. The front desk officer may also be consulted on the transportation timetable from Monday to Friday. During weekends the front desk in La Silla is closed.

The  passenger carriers are designed to accommodate up to 8 adults. The carry all leaves La Serena from La Serena Airport.

A computerized system called AT (Chukka Men's Leather Real Desert Martin Dark Boots HAPPYSHOP Brown Ankle Boots TM Boot Boots Actual Trip) has been implemented to register travelers to and from la Silla. For this reason, it is crucial that visiting astronomers fill in the Travel Form and submit it to the VA-Section in Garching, since they will inform La Silla about new visitor's arrivals, in order for registration in AT to be done.

Departure days and times to/from La Silla are sharp and can only be modified upon specific authorization by La Silla Management.

All passengers (staff, visiting astronomers) using the standard Lan Chile flights in the before mentioned days (Mondays to Friday), i.e., the ones that matches the transportation to/from La Silla, will always be met at/transferred to the airport by an ESO vehicle. To get updated information on flight timetables, please contact our travel agency, Carlson Wagonlit Travels, via e-mail to cwstgo@eso.org or through the phones (+56) 2 2463 3144/5, since flight timetables tend to change with very short notice.

Whenever planes are delayed for more than one hour (usually because of bad weather conditions) an external surface commuter will be arranged to transfer all passengers to La Silla, since the ESO vehicles must come up on a predetermined time, so that, they can leave La Silla later, on the scheduled time

Transfers on different days, or otherwise outside the normal ESO schedule (Mondays to Fridays), are undesirable and must be considered exceptional. It implies taxi transport by a private company. For safety reasons this requires prior approval

Visiting astronomers who wish to make the trip by bus between Santiago and La Serena (and/or back), should state so when making travel arrangements with our Visiting Astronomers Department, in Garching. For detailed information, visit the pages: "Guidelines for Visiting Astronomers" and "Instruction for Visiting Astronomers on Mission to Chile" or contact the VA section at VA-travel

Transport Route

As part of the overall restructuring of the La Silla operations, the ESO La Serena office has moved to Avenida Panoramica N 4461, which is about 700 m from the airport.

Regular transports to La Silla will leave this office on Mondays to Fridays at 11:30(aprox., depending on flight LA300 arrival), or after picking up incoming passengers from Santiago at the airport. From the new offices the transport to La Silla will drive along the following route:

- leaving the office it will take Colo Colo street, then Camino al Parque Coll, to reach the Juan Cisternas roundabout and exit onto Amunategui street

- It will briefly stop along La Serena University's Enrique Molina Garmendia campus (right in front of the bus entrance of the bus terminal) to collect any passengers waiting there.

- Then it will turn north on the Panamerican highway, and briefly stop again to take aboard any passengers waiting at the lateral bus stop near the end of the footbridge which crosses the highway next to the old railway station.

On the return leg, when entering La Serena from La Silla the vehicle shall stop along the old railway station, and continue straight to the Airport and office.

You can contact the La Serena office reception desk through mobile phone. (+56 ) 9 9129 7177 or via e-mail, laserena@eso.org

Back to Santiago

Since flights from La Serena to Santiago may be, occasionally, canceled due to bad weather conditions, a procedure has been established in order to arrange that passengers travel by night bus.
