Easter Island Standard Time (EAST)The differences between time zones to each other are always specified in relation to the "Universal Time Coordinated" (UTC), the time on the prime meridian (zero longitude). Phoenix, for example, is on the 122nd degree of longitude west and thus in the UTC-7 time zone. Easter Island Standard Time is consistent with UTC -6.
Countries with the Easter Island Standard Time, in which a switch to daylight savings time is common, turn the clock forward by one hour in summer. By doing so, they switch to Easter Island Summer Time (EASST) and reach UTC -5.
The Easter Island Standard Time applies only to some parts of Chile.
