Avianca Brazil, company owned by the same investor group as the main Avianca based on Colombia, joined Star Alliance this year.
Avianca Brazil’s Amigo frequent flier program started to offer Silver, Gold and Platinum matches for a limited time only that I wrote about last month (read more here).
You can access Avianca Brazil’s web page for the match here.
Here’s an email that a LoyaltyLobby reader forwarded to me:
He had requested match back in October 1st:
The temporarily card that came with the email had March 2017 as the expiry date
I haven’t taken advantage of this match yet (have lifetime Star Alliance Gold via United), but it makes sense for those that don’t don’t have Star Gold and have status with Oneworld or Skyteam. Seems that they don’t mind sending membership cards outside of Brazil.
