Brazilian Airline TAM has started selling the 2009 edition of the TAM Brazil Airpass and the TAM South America Airpass. These promotional passes are available at preferred rates exclusively to passengers who live outside of Brazil, including Brazilian citizens living overseas, traveling to various South American and Brazilian destinations.
To qualify for a TAM Brazil Airpass, the passenger must purchase a ticket originating from an international destination to any Brazilian city. TAM's promotional pass can then be issued as a separate ticket and linked to the international booking.
The TAM Brazil Airpass lets passengers choose the number of flights they wish to take throughout their journey and consists of up to nine coupons, with each coupon valid for one domestic journey operated by TAM in economy class.
The TAM South American Airpass enables passenger to fly between 1,200 and 8,200 miles within South America and covers destinations in the following countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. This type of Airpass enables customers to purchase up to eight coupons and travel between five countries.
The 2009 TAM Airpasses are valid for travel between 1/1/2009 and 6/10/2010 and are subject to the Company's established terms and conditions.
The promotion and sale of passes is permitted only outside of Brazil (or, in the case of the South American Airpass, outside of South America) at any TAM ticket desk or TAM appointed Travel Agency.
The Airpasses cost from US$ 551 to US$ 1511, depending on which air carrier is used to fly to Brazil (those fying TAM get a break) and on how many flights are allowed: from 4 to 9 flights.
Other international airlines with TAM airline agreements are also authorized to sell both Airpasses. For more information, visit www.tamairlines.com.
