TAM Airlines, a carrier of the LATAM Airlines Group, said it has joined the airline alliance oneworld.
LAN Airlines has been a member of oneworld since 2000. Its affiliates, LAN Argentina, LAN Colombia, LAN Ecuador and LAN Peru have already joined. TAM´s affiliated airline in Paraguay (TAM Mercosur), will also join oneworld soon. As a result, all passenger airlines of the LATAM Airlines Group will be members of the same alliance.
To the passengers of the carriers that are part of LATAM Airlines Group, this means greater convenience when traveling, since they will have the same standard of high-quality customer service, regardless of their international destination. To oneworld, this milestone represents the consolidation of its position as the leading alliance for flights within Latin America and between the region and the United States and Europe, which are the destinations most sought after by South American passengers.
LATAM Airlines Group S.A. is the new name given to LAN Airlines S.A. as a result of its association with TAM S.A. Further information at www.latamairlinesgroup.net
