TAM joins Star Alliance

Article content

17 May 2010

The agreement comes after a four-year negotiation process and means TAM is now linked with the other 26 Star Alliance carriers.

TAM Airlines CEO Líbano Barroso said: "Our integration into this aviation alliance will allow us to expand our services, offering our customers a smooth and integrated travel experience.

"There will always be a partner airline that will treat our customers as their own anywhere across the globe."

TAM Airlines offers more than 40 destinations in Brazil and 10 airports across South America. Over the past years, the airline has expanded its intercontinental network to cover a variety of destinations in the USA and Europe, many of these being Star Alliance hubs.

With the inclusion of TAM airlines, the Star Alliance network now counts 27 member carriers, offering more than 21,050 daily flights to 1,167 destinations in 181 countries.

Star Alliance CEO Jaan Albrecht said: "With TAM Airlines we gain a carrier based in South America, an important aviation market and home to many growing economies. Combining TAM Airlines’ network with that of our existing member carriers will allow Star Alliance to offer a very competitive product to, from and within this region."

Benefits for travellers include collection and redemption of loyalty points or frequent flyer programmes across the alliance, more connections to Brazil and South America and value-for-money deals.
