Delta Air Lines and LATAM have reached an agreement in Brazil.
Delta Air Lines and LATAM received unconditional final approval of their trade agreement ("Trans-American Joint Venture Agreement" or "JVA") from the Brazilian competition authority.
JVA aims to improve the route networks served by both airlines, providing a seamless travel experience between North and South America.
The Delta-LATAM agreement has also been approved in Uruguay, while the approval process continues in other countries, including Chile.
Ratification by the Brazilian authority supports the work of both airlines to provide their customers with a wider and more competitive network of benefits, which will include, inter alia:
- Code-sharing agreements between Delta and certain subsidiaries of the group LATAM, which allow the purchase of tickets to a larger network of destinations.
- Delta SkyMiles and LATAM Pass members can redeem points and miles for both airlines, accessing over 435 destinations worldwide.
- Common terminals and faster connections to New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) Terminal 4 and São Paulo's Guarulhos Airport Terminal 3.
- Reciprocal lounge access: Guests can access 35 Delta Sky Club lounges in the United States and five LATAM VIP lounges in South America.
