South America: LatinPass

LatinPass, a frequent travelers program using several South and Central American carriers, recently added TWA's Aviator program to its airline partnerships, broadening the options for mileage accumulation and redemption on a worldwide basis. Other airline partners include Hilton, Holiday Inns and Radisson.

LatinPass is targeting travel agents with a Miles & Miles frequent traveler program that offers agents a chance to earn frequent traveler miles in their own accounts when clients purchase full-fare airline tickets on LatinPass carriers. In addition, a travel agent earns 10,000 miles every time a client joins LatinPass.

LatinPass member airlines include: Aces and Avianca (Colombia); Aeropostal (Venezuela); Copa (Panama); Grupo Taca (Aviateca, Lacsa, Nica,

Taca-Salvador); Mexicana (Mexico) and Saeta (Ecuador).
