LATAM Airlines Group and Delta are continuing to expand their new partnership with a loyalty program agreement that will enable reciprocal frequent flyer benefits, starting April 1.
Once the agreement is implemented, LATAM Pass members will be able to accrue and redeem miles on Delta flights across its network of over 300 destinations worldwide. Likewise, Delta SkyMiles members will be able to earn and use miles on LATAM flights to 145 destinations in 26 countries across five continents. The carriers are also working to expand reciprocal lounge access benefits to more airports in the Americas and establish mutual top-tier recognition during the first half of 2020.
The move is the latest to build on the alliance between LATAM and Delta, which the two companies announced last September. Starting February 27, LATAM customers can purchase flights covered by the codeshares between Delta and LATAM Airlines Peru for flights operating from March 29, as well as LATAM Airlines Ecuador for flights operating from March 15. Delta passengers can also buy flights covered by the codeshares with LATAM’s affiliates in Peru, Ecuador and Colombia.
LATAM Airlines Brazil has also signed a codeshare agreement with Delta that will come into effect during the first half of 2020, subject to regulatory approval. LATAM Airlines Brazil’s “LA” code will be added to Delta flights from New York - JFK, Miami, Boston and Orlando to up to 65 onward routes in the United States and Canada. Likewise, Delta’s “DL” code will be added to LATAM Airlines Brazil flights from São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro to up to 37 onward routes in Brazil.
