Partnership opens 18 new Central and South America destinations to United

CHICAGO, June 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- United Airlines and TACA
GROUP today begin their code-share agreement, significantly expanding

with TACA enables us to significantly and strategically increase the depth
and breadth of our service into Central America for our customers."

service, and an experience in the industry that dates back to the beginning
of the century make TACA and United natural partners in their continuous
efforts to improve the customer travel experience," says Roberto Kriete,
TACA's president of the Board and CEO. "This agreement's forward-looking
approach yields strategic implications that will enable our users to enjoy
a worldwide connection and combined frequent flyer benefits."

Love Taca!

Big TACA fan here as well, but was disappointed to see them ditch American for United as far as frequent flyer partners - for purly selfish reasons - I hate United and refuse to fly with them so I have tons of American points.
