Edge landed Saturday 19th on a commercial flight ( Flight 533 Lan Chiile ) Of course traveling first class with his wife ( remember her from the video) Most of the flight they spent sleeping, taking some photos with the airline crew which has been posted on facebook.
After landing, “The Edge” and family left the airport via VIP area and left the same day heading to northern Chile, to San Pedro de Atacama.
The guitarist plan is consistent with the initial requests were sent to all producers of his visit: the possibility that the trip mix business with tourism activities. In fact, last week, those responsible for the appointment to the team he sent the group a list of different places to visit, which included locations in the north and others further south, as Villarrica and Pucon.
Of course, “The Edge” decided to go ahead to make tourism more quietly and without being longer immersed in the rhythm of a tour. Despite his surprise landing, is not now considered one of his companions arrive on commercial flights and independently.

In addition, Berry anticipates that the boys will prepare a special video series designed in Chile, which have developed in the time that elapsed between the last date of his trip, in late February in South Africa and the current week.
