JetSmart has entered into an alliance with American Airlines for flights to the United States.

JetSmart has entered into a strategic alliance with American Airlines to launch codeshare flights in the region, which also includes the US company’s entry as a minority shareholder in the low-cost carrier that operates coastal navigation in Argentina.

The agreement was launched with flights between the United States and Chile, thus implementing the largest route network on the continent, with access to a travel benefit program for customers of both companies.

For the second phase, the alliance will be expanded to include flights from Peru. A date has not yet been set for the start of activities from Argentina, although it is reported that the initiative is already under analysis within the National Commercial Aviation Administration (ANAC).

The alliance includes an extensive network of routes, as well as access, in the medium term, for JetSmart customers to the American Airlines AAdvantage® loyalty program.

It also means a minority investment by American in JetSmart, which will help boost the company’s development in South America.

Through this agreement, JetSmart will have an impetus to expand in Latin America and contribute to the regional economy through greater dynamism in tourism and other productive sectors in which air transportation is essential. The sale of tickets to and from the United States – and the vast American global network – initially linked by routes in Chile (Santiago, Antofagasta, Concepción and Puerto Montt) is the first of a series of milestones that will unite the global American presence with the complement of JetSmart network in South America, offering competitive fares and expanded options for travelers throughout the Americas.

Ticket sales began on June 1 for flights between the US and Chile with a start date of June 15 and can be reserved through the US website or by calling US Reservations. In the coming weeks, tickets will be made available to travelers from other regions of Chile as well as from Peru.

said Scott Lawrence, senior vice president of American Alliance Strategy.

He added, “The alliance with JetSmart will allow US to expand its long-distance services between the US and Latin America, giving access to our flights, network and AAdvantage® travel rewards program to more travelers in South America. Through this alliance, America can strengthen and expand its network in South America.” And attract more customers in more markets and give them access to lower fares and travel options.”

Meanwhile, JetSMART CEO Estuardo Ortiz said that this alliance “seeks to deliver on its promise to bring air transportation to all parts of South America.”

“Since the beginning, we have innovated in this segment, with ultra-low fares and new routes. Today we announce another step in this revolution by making history by launching an alliance between JetSmart and American Airlines. Our customers will be able to earn miles, fly through the JetSmart network and connect to the American Airlines global network As the fastest growing airline in South America, this alliance strengthens us and positions us to achieve our vision of reaching 100 million passengers and 100 aircraft by 2028.”
