Remember that since January 1, 2019, the way to qualify our Elite categories has changed. Review the details of this change.

For re-qualification of Elite members in March 2019, the rules valid until December 31, 2018 will be applied, which took Elite Points and segments flown on LATAM during one calendar year (between January 1 and December 31) into account. For some categories you may be required to spend a minimum amount in Elite Dollars.

This is how to earn Elite Points

Elite Points are calculated based on the distance you fly on LATAM flights, multiplied by a percentage that varies depending on the cabin class, fare category and flight that you choose (domestic or international).

Earning percentages on domestic flights:

This is how to earn LATAM segments

These are LATAM flights from one destination to another, with or without stopover, that have the same flight number

If you have a connection (stops that require you to disembark the airplane and change flight number), each segment is counted separately to qualify.

LATAM segments

There are also special segments, defined as flights further than 1,000 miles in LATAM Premium Economy and Premium Business class.     

This is how to earn Elite Dollars

This is the amount used to purchase flights that are comercialized and operated by LATAM, which does not include boarding fees, taxes or additional charges.
