SAO PAULO - GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes S.A., the largest low-cost and low-fare airline in Latin America, and Delta Air Lines, hereby announce an alignment of the management of their respective loyalty programs, SMILES and SkyMiles. The partnership between the two programs will offer frequent fliers exclusive benefits in airports and during flights.
The benefits for SMILES Diamond clients include priority check-in and boarding on Delta flights, as well as access to the Delta Sky Clubs in Atlanta, New York (JFK) and Detroit. Similarly, Delta's Diamond, Platinum and Gold Elite members can enjoy the same benefits as SMILES Diamond members on GOL flights and have access to VIP rooms in airports in Sao Paulo (Guarulhos International Airport) and Rio de Janeiro (Galeao International Airport) airports.
"The idea is to provide frequent fliers with more and better benefits every day," emphasized Flavio Vargas, Director of the SMILES program. "Other novelties and special services are in the pipeline and will be launched soon."
