Travel like a VIP with access to LATAM Airlines lounges

The LATAM Airlines World Elite Mastercard offers business-class upgrades, bonus miles and an easier path to LATAM Pass elite status. It’s also your key to LATAM Airlines’ airport lounges, with two passes included each year.

Cardholders receive two lounge passes after account approval, and another two each year, after paying the LATAM Airlines World Elite Mastercard’s $99 annual fee.

After linking your Cardless and LATAM Pass accounts, two lounge passes will be automatically loaded to your Cardless app each account year if you’re a LATAM Airlines World Elite Mastercard customer in good standing.

Note that an active internet connection is required to complete the check-in process. If your device is not connected to a cellular network, you’ll first need to connect to the airport’s Wi-Fi network before checking in with an attendant.

LATAM Airlines passengers with Platinum, Black and Black Signature LATAM Pass elite status are eligible to access the lounge free of charge, as are those traveling in the Premium Business or Premium Economy cabin. Once redeemed, passes cannot be reissued. Be sure to check with the lounge attendant before you redeem a pass from your Cardless app.

Once inside, you’ll find comfortable seating, food and drinks. Select lounges may offer additional amenities, such as business centers, shower suites, shoe shine and more.
