Our partnership with JetSMART

The partnership between American and JetSMART expands our network in the Americas. When you fly with American on JetSMART, you can earn miles and enjoy more flight benefits.

Earn miles

You can earn AAdvantage® miles when you fly on American Airlines marketed flights operated by JetSMART. You’ll also earn Loyalty Points toward AAdvantage® status.

Exception

You can’t earn AAdvantage® miles or earn Loyalty Points on JetSMART flights purchased directly from JetSMART (flight numbers beginning with ‘JA’).

Connections in South America

From American to JetSMART

Your bag tags should show your final destination in South America. However, once you arrive in South America:

  • You must retrieve your bags after clearing Immigrations and then clear Customs.
  • Take your bags to the JetSMART check-in counter in the departure terminal for your next flight.
  • If you don’t have your boarding pass for your JetSMART flight, go to the JetSMART check-in counter for your boarding pass.
  • Passengers connecting in Santiago (SCL): Take your bags after clearing Customs in Terminal 2 to the JetSMART check-in counter in Terminal 1.

From JetSMART to American

  • To check in, go to the JetSMART check-in counter in the departure terminal.
  • Your bag will transfer to your final destination as normal.
