We Expanded Our Codeshare With TRIP

SAO PAULO, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TAM (NYSE: TAM and Bovespa: TAMM4) and TRIP Linhas Aereas will expand the codeshare agreement signed between the two companies starting January 11. With it, TAM is able to sell flights operated by TRIP, under the code JJ*, to the cities Bonito (MS), via Campo Grande (MS) and Lencois (BA) and Petrolina (PE), via Salvador (SA). The two companies currently maintain a codeshare agreement for the operation of flights to 39 destinations within Brazil.

"We are expanding the scope of our domestic network through this new stage of our partnership with TRIP. With the three new cities involved in this agreement, we now serve a total of 82 destinations in Brazil, either through our own flights or through agreements with regional companies. Through the agreement, we are able to offer more convenience and better services to our passengers," stated TAM's Commercial and Planning Vice President, Paulo Castello Branco.

The partnership enables passengers to benefit from simplified flight reservations, convenient connections with a single airline ticket and baggage check until the final destination.
