For travelers who frequent South America, there’s a potentially lucrative status match promotion with LATAM, the continent’s largest airline. The match opportunity is open to frequent flyers of dozens of airline programs around the world.

Here’s what you should know about the match — and how to take advantage.

LATAM Status Match — The Details

LATAM is South America’s largest airline with several regional subsidiaries: LATAM Brasil, LATAM Colombia, LATAM Ecuador, LATAM Express, LATAM Paraguay, and LATAM Peru.

LATAM Pass, the airline’s frequent flyer program, works across all subsidiaries and while LATAM is no longer part of the Oneworld alliance, its program can still provide tangible benefits for elite members.

Depending on the matched status level, perks can include priority check-in, lounge access, premium seat assignments, upgrades, and more. The match is available for a limited time here and the elite status you’ll match to is valid through March 31, 2024

Matches from your airline can map to LATAM Pass’s Gold, Gold Plus, Platinum, or Black status — but not top-tier Black Signature level. Notably, Black-level elites are eligible for unlimited short-haul upgrades and up to 8 long-haul upgrades to business class.

In addition, with LATAM’s partnership with Delta Air Lines, elites on Delta-operated flights can get priority boarding and baggage, as well as Sky Club access on eligible long-haul itineraries.

How Much Does It Cost?

You can request this LATAM Pass status match at this page. Note, however, that there is a fee associated with this particular match. Costs range from $80 to $199 — if you’re a U.S. resident, you’ll pay $80.

Hot Tip:

If you’re interested in acquiring status with LATAM and accumulating miles, here’s our guide to redeeming miles in the LATAM Pass program.

Final Thoughts

This status match promotion may be a worthwhile offer for travelers who plan to fly LATAM to (or within) South America in the next 6 months. Even better, no flying is actually required to earn status. However, be aware of the $80 fee for U.S. residents.
