American e JetSMART pretendem criar parceria


Recommended Posts

Caros colegas internacionais, 

Hoje, anunciaremos que a American e a companhia aérea sul-americana de baixo custo JetSMART pretendem criar uma parceria para desenvolver uma rede mais ampla e gratificante em todas as Américas. Esta é uma enorme oportunidade para nossa equipe e clientes em todo o mundo se basearem na força da nossa rede e parceiros existentes na América Latina. Isso permitiria que a American e a JetSMART crescessem de forma agressiva e lucrativa em toda a América Latina à medida que a demanda se recupera, preservando os melhores aspectos de cada um de nossos modelos de negócios. 

Essa parceria também nos ajudaria a construir o melhor programa de fidelidade do mundo. Os clientes seriam capazes de ganhar e resgatar milhas AAdvantage em todos os voos da JetSMART – não apenas os voos que codificamos com eles. Isso criará mais maneiras de os clientes ganharem recompensas de viagem e usarem suas milhas para acessar novos destinos e benefícios de elite globalmente, não importa se eles os ganham na América Latina ou norte. Com isso e nossas outras alianças na região, os clientes americanos teriam acesso a tarifas mais baixas em uma rede de recompensas que é duas vezes maior que outras operadoras. 

Com sede no Chile e na Argentina, a JetSMART é uma transportadora de baixo custo e de curta distância que opera exclusivamente na América do Sul. Sua rede é complementar à nossa e não compete com a American em nenhuma de nossas rotas. Isso significa que podemos tanto crescer nossas redes de forma complementar que atrairá novos clientes para ambas as companhias aéreas. A JetSMART já atende 33 destinos na Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Colômbia, Peru e Uruguai e tem planos de aumentar seu serviço no continente agressivamente com nosso investimento. Eles operam 20 Airbus A320s, com uma idade média de frota de cerca de 2 anos, e atualmente têm pedidos para cerca de 80 airbus A320 mais família de aeronaves para ajudar com este crescimento planejado. A JetSMART também oferece um produto comparável e competitivo com a oferta de serviços de curto curso de outras companhias aéreas de serviço completo na América do Sul. 

Essa parceria proposta começaria com um investimento na JetSMART e que nos daria uma participação minoritária na companhia aérea. Isso permitiria que a JetSMART crescesse sua rede na América do Sul e integrasse a AAdvantage em seus negócios. 

À medida que continuamos fortalecendo nossa rede em todo o mundo, essas parcerias estratégicas serão a chave para o nosso sucesso. Teremos mais detalhes para compartilhar à medida que essa parceria for finalizada e progride, mas queríamos que você estivesse entre os primeiros a saber sobre este anúncio. Também gostaríamos de agradecê-lo por sua dedicação aos seus colegas e clientes que nos colocou na posição de nos tornarmos o líder na América Latina. 

Obrigado por tudo o que você faz,

American Airlines and JetSMART Sign Letter of Intent to Create the Broadest and Most Rewarding Network in the Americas

July 29, 2021,

  • American proposes acquiring a minority ownership stake in JetSMART allowing the carrier to rapidly grow its low-cost network in South America.
  • Customers would be able to earn and redeem AAdvantage miles on JetSMART flights.
  • Broad connectivity and robust loyalty program would create a compelling customer offering in Latin America.
  • Proposed codeshare agreement between the two airlines would create more options for customers traveling between the United States and South America.

FORT WORTH, Texas — American Airlines and JetSMART have signed a letter of intent to create the broadest network and most rewarding customer offering in the Americas. This proposed partnership would uniquely tie together the full-service, global presence of American with the complementary network of ultra-low-cost carrier JetSMART in South America to offer competitive fares and expanded travel options for flyers throughout North and South America.

“This proposed investment in JetSMART would give customers access to the largest network, lowest fares and best travel loyalty program in the Americas,” said Vasu Raja, American’s Chief Revenue Officer. “This would enable JetSMART and American to grow aggressively and profitably across Latin America as demand recovers, while preserving the best aspects of each carrier’s business model. This partnership would also make AAdvantage the largest travel loyalty program in the Americas, creating more ways for customers to earn travel rewards and use their miles to access new destinations and elite benefits globally, no matter whether they earn in Latin or North America.”

Operating from Chile and Argentina, JetSMART is a portfolio airline of Indigo Partners, one of the world’s premier developers of new generation ultra-low-cost airlines. JetSMART operates a modern fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft and offers short-haul domestic and international service to 33 destinations throughout South America. American has served Latin America since 1942 and offers service to 17 destinations in South America from its U.S. hubs in Dallas-Fort Worth, Miami and New York. Through the two airlines’ codeshare, customers would be able to travel seamlessly throughout the Americas.

“We look forward to working with American to continue delivering low fares and customer choice throughout South America,” said Bill Franke, Founder and Managing Partner of Indigo Partners.

Estuardo Ortiz, Chief Executive Officer of JetSMART, added, “By connecting and growing our respective networks, and maintaining our distinct business models, we see a compelling value proposition. When completed, this proposed partnership would accelerate JetSMART’s path to becoming the leading South American low-cost carrier while expanding service for American’s customers.”

Under the proposed transaction, American would invest in JetSMART to facilitate this growth and give American a minority ownership stake in the short-haul South American carrier. Additionally, American and Indigo Partners would jointly commit to provide additional capital to fund potential future opportunities in the region. American can strengthen and grow its South American network through this proposed partnership to attract more travelers in more markets. This proposed partnership, along with others in Latin America, would also give American customers access to more low fares and travel options on a network that is twice as big as other alliances.

The intended investments and codeshare agreements are subject to definitive documentation and any required governmental and regulatory approvals.
