The de Havilland DH.104 Dove was a British monoplane short-haul airliner from de Havilland, the successor to the biplane de Havilland Dragon Rapide and was one of Britain's most successful post-war civil designs.
With the incorporation of the de Havilland DH.104 Dove, with capacity for eight passengers, Lan Chile begins the service with four daily frequencies to Valparaíso, being landed in the El Belloto airport and then they were personnel in the routes to La Serena and Conception. Months late these planes eventually made the route to Antofagasta in replacement of the Lodestar.
In 1954 was signed an agreement with Allied Aircraft Company, Aviation Mart Company successor, whereby LAN was exchanging their twelve de Havilland Dove by DC-3, obtaining in exchange three Douglas DC-3.
