KLM Expands Cooperation With TAM

Mon Jan 24, 2005 6:53 pm

KLM has expanded its cooperation with TAM.

KLM had a codeshare with TAM to provide pax with onward connection from GRU to EZE and GIG with TAM operated flights. Now KL has extended the cooperation with TAM for flights from GRU to the following other domestic destinations in Brazil:

Belo Horizonte - CNF
Brasilia - BSB
Campo Grande - CGR
Campinas - CPQ
Curitiba - CWB
Florianópolis - FLN
Foz do Iguaçú - IGU
Porto Alegre - POA
Vitória - VIT
Recife - REC
Fortaleza - FOR
Manaus - MAO
Natal - NAT
Salvador - SSA

All these destinations could be booked on KL website, and are TAM operated flights.

All TAM domestic flights in Brazil and to EZE qualify for KL FD miles.

I hope we could see TAM as a full Sky partner very soon.  Smile

Rgs,

I'd like to see tam in Skyteam, but if on the one hand there is this expansion of partership with KL, what does the cancelation of code-sharing on Brazil-France and Fidelidade points mean?

Very disturbing to me. I can't see any sense in TAM's codeshare practice.

First they announce an end to all their codeshares with AA, RG and AF and now they begin a new one with KL.

What is the logic behind it?

JoFMO:

What JJ did with KL is the same is has been doing with AF. You have to realise that KL partnership with TAM is very limited. There is no link between KL FD and JJ Fidelidade in the broader sense.

The only change was to expand KL cooperation with TAM so as to allow KL pax arriving in GRU to connect with TAM on domestic flights. For those domestic destinations, KL FD pax are also entitled to earn miles. This is the same that JJ is doing with AF nowadays: AF pax arriving in GRU and GIG are provided with JJ onward connection to selected destinations, and they also earn miles for these domestic flights.

JJ Fidelidade members DONT earn miles traveling with KL in any of its network, including GRU-AMS.

But I must agree that JJ Fidelidade is looking like a mess....apparently JJ members can now earn miles traveling AF on any destination but CDG-South America.....very confusing....

JJ has to decide what to do with regard to international alliances, once and for all.
