Delta Air Lines and Latam Airlines Group announced the two had signed a trans-American joint-venture deal that would cover the two airlines’ route networks between North and South America.

Most recently, in February of this year, the two airlines announced plans to offer members of their frequent-flyer programs the ability to earn and redeem miles on the other.  Scheduled to go into effect later this year, this would offer elite reciprocal benefits, including lounge access and access to priority boarding, bag check, and seat assignment

In September, Delta took a 20% stake in Latam.  In December, the two airlines announced a codeshare partnership for flights to be operated by Latam affiliates in Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru.

Latam Airlines Group is a Chilean holding company headquartered in Santiago. It has subsidiaries in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, and Peru.
