Redeem your LANPASS Kilometers for a Cabin Upgrade
When you buy a ticket in the economy cabin for international flights sold and operated by LAN, you may redeem your LANPASS Kilometers for a cabin Upgrade for you and your flight companions*. This benefit is limited in availability.
As a PREMIUM member, you’ll receive an additional bonus equivalent to 25% of the accumulated distance on LAN, TAM and American Airline flights. For example, if you fly 10,000 kilometers, 12,500 kilometers will be credited to your account.
As a PREMIUM member, you can check in at the Premium Business or Premium Economy counters even if you’re travelling in Economy class, just by showing your membership card. This benefit is available on international routes and is valid for both LAN and oneworld airline flights. The benefit is only valid for the cardholder.
When you take international flights, we'll label your baggage so that, whenever possible, it's among the first out.
Once you fulfill one of the two criteria for qualification, you will promptly receive your Premium welcome pack, which contains:
- Your LANPASS Premium membership card, with oneworld Ruby icon.
- A Premium tag for your luggage that will ensure it is given Priority-category treatment on international flights.
