For all purposes of these regulations, a "calendar year" runs from 1 January to 31 December each year.
4.2 The LANPASS Premium, LANPASS Premium Silver and LANPASS Commodore membership cards are not transferable and only provide benefits to their holders unless otherwise stated in the specific terms and conditions of any Benefit and/or Award.

4.4 All membership cards are the exclusive property of LANPASS.
4.5 The member must report the loss or theft of his/her membership card immediately to the nearest LAN office in person or by telephone. Once the case information is analyzed by LANPASS, a new card may be issued within 30 days from the date the loss was reported to the address that is registered in the program.
5. Membership Category
5.1 The LANPASS Program has four membership categories: (a) LANPASS, (b) LANPASS Premium, (c) LANPASS Premium Silver and (d) LANPASS Commodore. Only the last three categories, considered Elite categories, have corresponding membership cards.
5.2 The different membership categories are determined by the fulfillment of the established membership requirements for each category, as described at http://www.lan.com/sitio_personas/lanpass/comodoro-category/how-to-qualify-comodoro/, as well as the terms and conditions of certain agreements with Partner companies. For more information, review other conditions on the website www.lan.com/lanpass.
5.3 LANPASS kilometers earned from Partner Companies and/or Associated Airlines will not be counted to determine a membership category (except as expressly provided otherwise.) Nor will segments flown in executive class obtained through upgrade coupons be considered to qualify for Elite categories, whether they are for the use of benefits, for the purchase thereof with LANPASS kilometers or by other means not specified in this paragraph.
5.4 Nor will segments flown using an Award or any other ticket that does not qualify to earn LANPASS kilometers determine a membership category. These include, but are not limited to, the following: all tickets issued as LANPASS rewards or other free ticket promotions, including reduced-fare or free tickets, companion tickets, charter tickets, discount tickets for agents or employees of the travel industry, infant tickets, tickets purchased for items that occupy a seat, unpublished fare tickets, including consolidation fees, and tickets issued subject to special provisions.
5.5 Once all and every one of the conditions required to qualify for a higher membership category are met, that member will be incorporated into that category and will remain there for the remainder of the calendar year in which required conditions were met and during the calendar year immediately following.
5.6 If a member does not meet the requirements to renew its category, it will belong to the category immediately preceding the one to which he/she belongs for the next year, even if he/she does not meet the requirements to qualify for said category.
5.7 The renewals will take place on the 31st of March every year, considering the requirements met by the member during the previous calendar year.
5.8 LANPASS may, at its discretion, maintain or upgrade the category of a member, even if he/she has not fulfilled all the requirements for such category but cannot demote the member’s category, as long as the member meets the requirements to stay therein.
5.9 The changes in the membership category will not affect the balance of kilometers redeemable for Awards and vice versa.
5.10 Upgrade coupons and Benefits issued for meeting conditions in Partner companies cannot be combined with Upgrade coupons and Benefits granted to Elite category members, unless expressly stated otherwise.
6.1 The unit of measurement of the LANPASS Program is kilometers.
6.2 The kilometers have the following characteristics and are subject to the following terms:
6.2.1 They have no commercial value, are not negotiable or redeemable for cash.
6.2.2 They are transferable in accordance with the provisions in Section 7 of these Regulations.
6.2.3 They are not transmissible, so that in the event of a member’s death, the member’s account and the earned kilometers will be voided.
6.2.4 They may not be seized, since they are rights whose exercise is entirely personal, unless the law or court order provides otherwise.
6.2.5 They may not be the object of legal or judicial dispute, and only belong to the membership account holder, as a personal right.
6.2.6 If the member requests a refund of a ticket issued as an Award, he/she must pay a fee in Kilometers. The charge is variable depending on the ticket and according to information published at www.lan.com. The return of a ticket issued as an award requires that the ticket issued be valid (the validity begins on the date of issuance of the ticket), even up to the day of departure, with no segments having been flown, and the kilometers used for its issuance must be unexpired when requesting a refund.
6.2.7 If the member requests a refund of a non-air Reward, he/she will not have to pay a charge in kilometers, unless otherwise set out in the terms and conditions of the exchange.
6.2.8 Awards are not endorsable, so they cannot be used in any companies other than LAN, oneworld® Airlines, or Associated Airlines, nor by persons other than those designated by the member, according to the Award redeemed. If a ticket award is issued, it can only be used in the airline therein indicated.
7. Transfer of Kilometers
7.1 The terms regarding charges, conditions, operation, and responsibilities applicable to the transfer of LANPASS kilometers shall be solely defined in the terms and conditions that will be communicated to members when they access the online platform to transfer kilometers, and said terms must be read and accepted by members prior to the transaction.
7.2 Notwithstanding the foregoing, and except where expressly excluded, any transfer of LANPASS kilometers shall carry a transfer management service charge, which will be charged to the respective member, according to the terms and conditions specified on the platform. These costs are not refundable.
7.3 The transferred kilometers can only be transferred and received between Lanpass accounts that have been established for at least 10 days. Each member is limited to transfer a maximum number of kilometers from their account and no recipient may receive any more kilometers transferred from another LANPASS program account or from a combination of accounts in a calendar year, according to the limits set out at www.lan.com .-. All LANPASS kilometers above this limit will not be transferred from the member's account or credited to the account of any receiver.
7.4 Any inappropriate use of kilometers or the kilometer transfer platform, according to these regulations and the terms and conditions posted on the transfer platform, or any misuse of kilometers shall be grounds for immediate confiscation and forfeiture of such kilometers, and may result in the total loss of kilometers in the member's account and their removal from the LANPASS program, notwithstanding other actions and rights pursuant to law and these regulations.
7.5 The minimum kilometer transfer is 1.000 kilometers. The transferred kilometers can be used for any LANPASS Awards or Benefits, according to general rules. However, said kilometers will not be counted for purposes of determining the membership category to which the respective member belongs, nor will it imply any activity in the account of the transferor or the person receiving the kilometers, regarding effects of the expiration of kilometers.
7.6 All transferred kilometers last between 3 years and 2 years and 1 day. This will depend exclusively on the time when the transference is made. The year that the transfer occurs counts as the first year; for example, if the kilometers are transferred between January and December of 2015, they will expire on December 31st of the year 2017.
7.7 It is forbidden to receive or give, directly or indirectly, any object, value, interest or any compensation in exchange for the transfer of kilometers. Likewise, if the kilometers are resold, distributed, transferred for any reason (in the form of payment or otherwise), or used for improper purposes determined at the sole and absolute discretion of LANPASS, or if any transfer of kilometers is carried out by abuse or fraudulent use of credit card, or any other illegal means, LANPASS may, at will, cancel, void, refuse to validate and/or reverse the kilometers transferred and exercise all rights and remedies available. You agree that LANPASS can debit your account or the account to which you transferred the kilometers in connection with the foregoing. You agree to cooperate fully with all reasonable requests from LANPASS related to any investigation or prosecution of any person involved in or suspected of being involved in abuse or fraud in connection with the transfer of kilometers by means of this document.
7.8 All fees paid by the Member for the transfer of kilometers under these regulations, and the terms and conditions communicated when he/she registered on the online kilometer transfer platform, will include all taxes and charges that are applicable.
7.9 The transfer of kilometers may cause tax implications for both for the transferor of kilometers and the member who receives them in his/her account, so members are advised to consult their tax advisors prior to any transfer of kilometers. LAN will not be liable for any contingency or tax burden that may be generated by the members regarding the transfer of kilometers.
7.10 If LAN detects any fraud, overdue payment of transfer fees, exceeded limits of transferred kilometers, or any other breach of these regulations, or of the terms and conditions set out by the online kilometer transfer platform, LAN may immediately withdraw and reverse any transfer of kilometers, notwithstanding any other actions and rights pursuant to law and these regulations.
7.11 Notwithstanding the foregoing, all kilometer transfer transactions are final. Once a transaction is completed, the members may not reverse it or leave it null and void, or annul the payment of the transfer fee.
8. Earning Kilometers
8.1 Kilometers shall be credited when a member travels on LAN or oneworld® Airlines or Associated Airlines, provided that such flights are thereby operated, or he/she makes use of the services enabled by any of the Partner Companies. If the member belongs to the LANPASS Program, as well as a Frequent Flyer Program of a oneworld® Airline or an Associated Airline or an Associated Company, the kilometers may only be credited to one account, at the discretion of member. Under no circumstances may the kilometers be credited to more than one account. The member must communicate their membership number, which should appear on the boarding pass.
8.2 For the purpose of earning kilometers, any flight operated by any airline, but using, for any reason, LAN code on the ticket, shall be deemed a valid flight to earn kilometers and to qualify the member for Premium, Premium Silver and Commodore categories, provided such is carried out with fares, routes and dates that allow the earning of LANPASS kilometers.
8.3 Regarding restrictions imposed by oneworld® Airlines and Associated Airlines, the means and number of kilometers earned on flights may not necessarily coincide with those established by LAN for their flights and will depend on the restrictions on the fare class paid or the conditions specified for oneworld® Airlines or Associated Airlines and there may be fare classes or flights that allow only a percentage of the distance flown or other restrictions. The member shall be responsible to find out how many kilometers are required for flights he/she may take with oneworld® Airlines or Associated Airlines; such information is available at www.lan.com.
8.4 Flights sold by third-party airlines without a frequent flyer agreement with LAN and which are operated by LAN do not earn kilometers. Flights sold by oneworld® airlines which are operated by third-parties that are not part of the oneworld® alliance do not earn kilometers either, nor do flights sold by affiliated airlines without a frequent flyer agreement with LAN and which are operated by third-parties.
8.5 Kilometers flown may only be credited prior to registration if the flights were taken on LAN and within no more than 60 days before the date of registration.
8.6 The kilometers will be credited to the member's account only after the trip is made and the respective ticket is paid. Therefore, tickets purchased but not flown or paid do not earn kilometers. Because of this, the member must keep and turn in, upon request, documents certifying the flight was made (ticket and boarding pass.)
8.7 The kilometers generated by services provided by oneworld® Airlines or Associated Airlines shall be credited to the member's account only after the corresponding oneworld® Airline or Associated Airline or Associated Company submits the required information to LAN for said credit.
8.8 The member has up to 180 days from the date of the flight taken to retroactively apply for credit if the flight has not been credited to his/her account. Applications for the retroactive accreditation of kilometers originating from services provided by oneworld® Airlines or Associated Airlines will only be processed if the member delivers his/her flight documents (boarding passes and passenger receipt of the flight ticket.) If documents proving that flight was taken are not delivered, the application will not be processed. If the request is made through the website www.lan.com, and for certain airlines listed on this website, it is not necessary to submit documents to apply for retroactive accreditation of kilometers.
8.9 LANPASS KILOMETERS whose accumulation is requested retrospectively by a member will be registered and appear in the member’s statement on the date on which they were effectively flown, assuming they can be accumulated. However, for Elite category qualifying purposes, any kilometers accumulated retrospectively will only be considered for the calendar year of the date on which the member requested this accreditation.
8.10 Regarding Partner Companies, the member has up to 180 days from the date the service was rendered by any such company for retroactive accreditation if such activity has not been credited to his/her account. In any case, the retroactive earning shall only apply to registered customers, not to those who, as of the date of the flight or purchase, were not LANPASS members. For some Partner companies, applications for retroactive kilometer accreditation shall only be processed if the member presents certain documents as evidence that the service was provided. Companies that require documents and the documents required for accreditation are listed on the website www.lan.com.
8.11 The kilometers earned for flights on LAN or oneworld® or Associated Airlines equal the distance between the points of origin and destination of the flight; such distances are provided by IATA. Notwithstanding the foregoing, and as temporary or permanent measure, LANPASS may add bonus kilometers to the distance between the point of origin and destination.
8.12 The kilometers earned with Partner Companies correspond to what said companies communicate to LANPASS; the responsibility for the calculation of the quantity credited shall not fall on LANPASS.
8.13 The kilometers earned by flying on LAN have a validity of 36 consecutive months, starting from the date of the flight. In all cases, the kilometers shall effectively expire on the last day of the month of said expiration.
8.14 The kilometers earned by flying oneworld® Airlines or Associated Airlines, or Partner Companies, using any services of the Partner Companies or promotional bonuses, are valid for 3 calendar years, which means that they shall expire on the 31st of December of the third year in which they were earned.
8.15 However, each time the passenger flies on LAN and earns 1 or more kilometers on the flight, all existing earned kilometers in his/her account up to the date of said flight will automatically be renewed, going on to have a period of 36 consecutive months, from the date of said flight and will effectively expire on the last day of the thirty-sixth month.
8.16 It is not the responsibility of LANPASS to communicate the expiration date of kilometers, according to the rules of kilometer expiration herein set out.
8.17 LANPASS program Awards used to fly on LAN or any of the oneworld® Airlines or Associated Airlines, as well as awards for services from the partner companies, do not earn kilometers, and do not count for promotion to any Elite member category.
8.18 Nor shall kilometers be credited for any ticket issued as a LANPASS award, nor other free ticket such as promotions or reduced-price or free tickets or free companion tickets, charter tickets, discount tickets for travel agents or industry employees, infant tickets, tickets purchased for items that occupy a seat, unpublished fare tickets, including consolidation rates, or tickets issued subject to special provisions.
8.19 Tickets that allow earning endorsed to other companies by LAN shall earn the equivalent amount of kilometers as if they had been flown on LAN only in the case of an involuntary event, i.e., not attributable to the passenger's responsibility. Tickets allowing earning endorsed by oneworld® Airlines or associated with third parties who do not have a Frequent Flyer agreement with LANPASS, do not credit kilometers.
8.20 In case of a Class Upgrade obtained as an Award or for free on a LAN flight or on any of the oneworld® Airlines or Associated Airlines, only kilometers corresponding to the class paid for by the member shall be credited to the member’s account, and not those corresponding to the class to which he/she was promoted, and will not be considered for purposes of upgrading to one of the Elite membership categories.
8.21 It shall be the sole responsibility of the member to verify that the kilometers corresponding to his/her flights on LAN and/or oneworld ®Airlines and Associated Airlines as well as services from the Partner Companies are properly credited to his/her account. Therefore, the member must keep all flight documents (boarding pass, passenger receipt of the flight ticket) and the original invoices or contracts, in order to claim a retroactive crediting of kilometers. Under no circumstances may kilometers be earned after one (1) year from the flight or the act that generated them, unless so permitted by partner companies for kilometers issued by said companies.
8.22 LANPASS reserves the right to investigate a member's account at any time and without notice, in order to ensure compliance with these terms and conditions. LANPASS may deduct any kilometers wrongly credited to a member and likewise, withhold the Awards or certificates pending resolution of any dispute, duly informing the member of such.
8.23 In the event that flights and/or services that enable LANPASS to earn kilometers are bought on credit, or their payment is deferred over time, the member can redeem an Award using the kilometers, whether with those earned with said ticket purchased or any other, only to the extent that the respective tickets are being paid in the manner and time agreed upon when the flight and / or service was purchased.
8.24 It will be the sole responsibility of the member to comply with laws and regulations that may be applicable for purposes of participating in the LANPASS program and earning kilometers, especially for members who have the status of public officials.
9. Redeeming LANPASS awards
9.1 To apply for an Award, the member must have a valid membership number and the number of kilometers needed to redeem the Award requested. The number of kilometers required to receive an Award is set out in the Award Table in effect on the date of application, or one calculated according to the equivalent value, published for the redemption of an Award and/or specific Benefit.
9.2 The kilometers needed to claim an Award and/or Benefit vary depending on the award and/or benefit desired. Regarding airfare Awards, the Economy cabin has 3 levels of awards: Classic, Plus, and Full (ordered from lowest to highest number of kilometers required to earn said Awards.)

In all cases, a document proving the identity of the member must be shown. On the website, www.lan.com, members must register by entering a username and password.
9.6 To redeem awards through the LAN Contact Center (choosing LANPASS) or LAN offices or travel agencies, the Member must pay the LANPASS Service Fee for each ticket issued.

These records must be submitted in accordance with the terms and channels applicable to such specific Award and/or Benefit.
9.9 To redeem awards for children or infants, there are no special discounts, so the award will have a single value regardless of the age of the member or beneficiary of the award that is redeemed.
9.10 The Awards are valid for one year (12 months), from the date of issuance, after which they immediately expire.
9.11 Air ticket Awards shall be issued in the form of return tickets. No awards are redeemable for one way tickets.

If the Member uses the Award only on the outbound leg, he/she will not be refunded the balance of kilometers or the money paid for the unused return leg.
9.12 Awards with flights operated by LAN and one or more oneworld® Airlines or awards that have flights operated by one or more oneworld® Airlines may be issued without any restrictions. However, for Associated Airlines, only LAN flights may be combined with one of such Associated Airlines.
9.13 Upgrades can be redeemed for one way tickets (only for the outbound leg or return leg) or for return flights.
9.14 It is the responsibility of the Member to check the amount of LANPASS kilometers required to redeem a particular award on flights with LAN, oneworld Airlines and Associated Airlines since the quantities of LANPASS kilometers required for the same route may vary.

10. Changes or refunds of LANPASS awards
10.1 The Member may request changes to an Award consisting of an airline ticket up to the day of the trip in offices and the call center, and until 48 hours before flight departure via the website www.lan.com. No changes of the remainder of Awards (once their use has begun) shall be allowed. In case of changes, the validity of the Award is not extended. Consequently, the exchanged Award shall have a validity equivalent to the remaining validity of the original award.
10.2 LANPASS Award tickets may only be exchanged for tickets requiring an equal or lesser number of kilometers, subject to availability, on our site www.lan.com. For awards that require a greater amount of kilometers, the change may be made through sales offices and the Contact Center.
10.3 In general, for any kind of LANPASS Awards, when exchanging a Award for one that requires fewer kilometers, the difference in kilometers that is not used for the new Award shall not be returned to the Member, unless a new Award exchange is requested, requiring an amount equal to or less than the kilometers used in the original award, in which case, said balance of kilometers may be used on the second new Award. For subsequent changes of dates, the initial number of kilometers and their original expiration date shall be kept.
10.4 To exchange Awards in the form of tickets that require a greater number of LANPASS kilometers, the difference in kilometers must be deducted from the same account wherefrom the original award was deducted and must be only for awards with flights operated and marketed by LAN with valid tickets. For changes of origin or destination, the ticket must be unused and for changes that keep the origin and destination, the ticket may have been partially used. The customer must pay the difference in rates if they are incurred in making the change.
10.5 Voluntary changes must be made in the same cabin as originally issued, except if the original cabin does not exist on the new flight. In this case, the award may be issued in a lower cabin; the Member must renounce the difference of unused kilometers.
10.6 The change of date, route, or flight of Awards consisting of tickets is allowed only if no coupons are being used. There is a charge for such change. The fee varies according to the country in which the ticket is issued and the route. Change fees are published on www.lan.com. Awards issued for travel on oneworld® Airlines or Associated Airlines only allow changes of date and/or time and do not allow changes to the itinerary, airline or previously scheduled stopover.
10.7 If the member requests the refund of a reward that takes the form of an issued plane ticket, a charge in kilometers must be paid. This charge varies depending on the reward and according to the information published at LAN.com. For a reward refund to be given, the ticket must be valid (its validity begins from the date the ticket is issued), the refund must be requested before the flight's departure and with no legs having been flown (except for oneworld® upgrades) and the kilometers that were used for it must not have expired at the time the refund is requested. Refunds can be requested by filling in our form or calling our Contact Center (LANPASS option) or at LAN offices. Once the refund has been processed, the kilometers that have not expired will be credited again to the member's LANPASS kilometer account.
10.8 The Awards are nominative, have no cash value and are nontransferable. If for any reason or cause an Award is not wholly or partly-used in the time and form issued, said Award will lose all value.
10.9 Notwithstanding the provisions of this chapter of the regulations, all exchanges and returns of awards and/or benefits must be subject to the specific terms and conditions established for each award, benefit, promotion or program.
10.10 In cases where the return of a LANPASS award proceeds, LAN shall return departure taxes or applicable taxes that have been charged for the issuing of the award ticket within 45 working days.
11. Restrictions on the use of awards

In no event will they board the Member on another airline for these or other reasons.
