  • Latam Airlines Brazil

LATAM Airlines Group S.A announced that its consolidated affiliate TAM Linhas Aereas S.A. (“LATAM Airlines Brazil”), does not intend to renew or extend its operating agreement with Multiplus S.A., its loyalty coalition affiliate, after December 31, 2024. Concurrently, LATAM Airlines Brazil announced its intention to offer to acquire all of the common shares in Multiplus that LATAM’s affiliates do not currently own, and to subsequently de-list Multiplus from the B3 Novo Mercado in Brazil and cancel its registration.The acquisition of Multiplus and its full integration into LATAM’s network will, together with LATAM Pass, create what LATAM estimates will be the fourth largest frequent flyer and loyalty program in the world (measured by member base), and will cement the LATAM Group’s relationship with 21.1 million members at Multiplus. Multiplus members’ points and redemption benefits will remain intact, and Multiplus’s commercial partners will benefit from enhanced customer acquisition, retention and share of wallet.

  • Pizza Hut

Yum Brands hopes its new alliance with Telepizza, which was closed last May, will further expand its Pizza Hut brand internationally and that refocusing on a primarily delivery-based store model will help drive sales for the pizza chain. Pizza Hut’s agreement with Telepizza will position the combined companies as the largest pizza chain across Latin America and the Caribbean. The partnership calls for Telepizza to open at least 1,300 new stores over the next 10 years and a minimum of 2,550 stores total over the next 20 years, said David Gibbs, Yum Brands president and CFO, on a Yum Brands earnings call Aug. 2.
