LATAM TRADE

Sales | Codeshare

    Codeshare refers to an agreement between airlines whereby a certain carrier may place its own flight number on flights operated by another carrier. This allows both companies to cover more destinations and provide more flight frequencies, thus giving better service to their customers.

    A difference must be made between the operating carrier and the marketing carrier.

    • Operating: the company that sells and operates a flight
    • Marketing: the company that sells the flight but does not operate it 

    It is a legal requirement to inform customers which carrier will be operating the flight. 

    LATAM has the following codeshare agreements:

    • The LATAM stock must be used for reservations and ticketing of flights marketed by LATAM.
    • This does not apply to group reservations on codeshare flights.
    • For questions about special services, ask an agency support agent.
    • Exceptions with Interjet (4O):
      • Direct ticketing with the operator is not permitted. LA fares for this codeshare will be available for flights to/from Santiago (SCL) and Lima (LIM) connecting in Mexico City with LA flights ** operated by 4O on domestic routes in Mexico.

    On codeshare flights marketed by LATAM, seats must be booked every time a customer requests so.

    Only in the case of system limitations for pre-booking a seat in any cabin (e.g. a seat is booked but not confirmed), the agent must instruct the customer to book the seat directly with the operating carrier at the time of check in at the airport.

     

    Important: Seats and other ancillaries are not available for sale on codeshare flights.

    • Carry-on Luggage: The operating carrier’s policy applies.
    • Checked Baggage: The interline baggage policy of the Most Significant Carrier applies. If the MSC is a codeshare flight, the marketing carrier’s policy applies. For further details, check the Baggage Section.
    • For the codeshare between LATAM Airline Brazil and Passaredo, if Passaredo is the operating carrier, the Passaredo allowance applies.
    • Customers must check in directly with the flight operator.
