Since its launch in March 2011, LifeMiles has established agreements with global, regional, and local car rentals, hotels, department stores, amusement parks, restaurants, Spa´s, and beauty parlors among others, increasing the possibilities for every member to live their miles. Thanks to this, LifeMiles members stay at Barcelo, Hilton, Marriott, Sol Mejia, and Real Hotels; and rent cars at Hertz, Avis or Budget in order to accrue more miles. Additionally, members are able to earn miles for every dollar spent when using any of the credit cards in the brand´s portfolio, which is shared in Central America, Colombia, USA, and Peru.
Beyond the adoption of regulations issued by multilateral and national agencies, AviancaTaca Holding has also launched an action plan allowing it to effectively contribute to the welfare of employees, customers, shareholders, investors and the community in general through specific and measurable strategies. Sustainability is a core asset of the business. The three key aspects needed in order to achieve our goals are: social, environmental and economic in nature.
In 2012, and thanks to the donation of miles from LifeMiles members, the Mileage Bank was able to help 389 people in need of medical assistance. This program now has partners in the hubs operated by the group´s airlines, becoming an integral plan that favors the vulnerable communities in Latin America.
The company is also advancing in its renovation, streamlining, and fleet modernization process by adding 14 new Airbus aircraft to the fleet. These new airplanes are equipped with ecofriendly technology along with improvements in the combustion chambers, which allow a reduction of over 20% in CO2 and NOx emissions.
In the same way, important steps have been taken in order to certificate and implement green procedures, by obliging to local and international regulations such as ISO 14001, IFC, ISAGO, and IOSA. With the objective of promoting an eco-friendly culture within the organization, a plan has been set forth in order to properly dispose of waste, greenhouse gases, chemical substances, and discharges.
