Aerolineas Argentinas is now officially part of the SkyTeam alliance, opening another avenue for earning & burning points as well as using status held with other SkyTeam airlines.
The Argentine flag-carrier will also implement SkyTeam's SkyPriority airport service for Elite Plus, First and Business Class passengers by the end of 2012.
Customers traveling on SkyTeam’s Go Round the World pass now benefit from even more seamless travel throughout six continents. Aerolineas Argentinas operates direct flights from Buenos Aires to Sydney, meaning for the first time customers can fly non-stop between South America and Australia as part of a SkyTeam Round the World itinerary.
Aerolineas Argentinas joins recent SkyTeam recruits China Eastern and Taiwan-based China Airlines, with Garuda Indonesia also on the books for 2014.
