TAM Partners with NHT and Offers Flights to 81 Cities in Brazil

Brazilian airline NHT's aircraft A commercial agreement signed between Brazilian airline TAM and the regional company NHT will start Monday, September 24. The partnership allows TAM to market NHT flights to the cities of Pelotas, Rio Grande, Santa Maria, Santana do Livramento, Santa Rosa, Santo Angelo and Uruguaiana all in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, in the south of Brazil, using the JJ code-share.

According to a TAM release, thanks to the accord, the two airline companies will be able to offer their passengers more facilities and flight options, stimulating regional traffic.

Passengers willing to travel to the new destinations offered by TAM can fly to Porto Alegre and take immediate connecting flights operated by NHT, purchasing only one ticket for all legs of the journey.

NHT passengers can connect to TAM flights in Porto Alegre to any destination operated by the company in Brazil and abroad, again, buying just one ticket.

The partnership will allow passengers to accumulate points for the TAM Fidelity Program and use them for any flight offered by either company. Clients who have the red TAM Fidelity Card and TAM Itaú Personnalité (MasterCard Platinum or Visa Platinum) credit card will have access to the TAM VIP lounge at the Salgado Filho International Airport in Porto Alegre.

TAM already maintains commercial agreements with the regional companies Pantanal, Passaredo, Trip and Total. With the NHT partnership, TAM's network will expand and will offer flights to 81 locations in Brazil, of which 47 will be flights on TAM.

The agreement will also allow the company to reinforce its presence in Rio Grande do Sul, where it currently operates flights to Porto Alegre and Caxias do Sul.

TAM has been the leader in the Brazilian domestic market for more than four years, and held a 49.3% domestic market share and 65.3% international market share at the end of August.

TAM operates regular flights to 47 destinations throughout Brazil. It serves 81 different cities in the domestic market through regional alliances.

Additionally, it maintains code-share agreements with international airline companies that allow passengers to travel to a large number of destinations throughout the world.
