LAN Airlines and its affiliates Lan Peru, Lan Argentina and Lan Ecuador has signed a bilateral interline agreement with the U.S. airline JetBlue Airways, through which customers using LANs interline network of destinations will gain access to a greater number of routes and connections.

The interline agreement will allow LAN passengers access to up to 55 cities across the United States, Latin America and Caribbean. Passengers will also be able to connect to JetBlues international routes to destinations including the Dominican Republic, Bermuda, Jamaica, Aruba, Barbados, Saint Lucia and The Bahamas, among others. This is in addition to the more than 70 international destinations already offered by LAN Airlines and its affiliates.

Other advantages of the interline agreement for LANs passengers, aside from the option to expand their itineraries with more destinations, include an easier travel process including a single ticket for travel on both airlines and one-stop check-in for boarding passes and baggage for all flights.

Visitors from North America and the Caribbean will enjoy a greater flexibility to access LAN Airlines and its affiliates network of tourism destinations in South America, including Cuzco, Easter Island, Foz de Iguaz (Igauzu Falls) and the Patagonia regions of Chile and Argentina.

This interline agreement expands LANs network in North America and the Caribbean and makes it possible to connect passengers with attractive new destinations and offer more convenient connections including hundreds of new daily flights to and from New York, Boston, Chicago, and Washington D.C., as well as other cities in the Midwest and Western United States, said Armando Valdivieso, CEO of LAN Airlines Passenger Division.
