What is Elite Maternity?

We recognize the loyalty of our female Elite Members who are not able to fly with the same frequency as before, due to their pregnancy. As an Elite member benefit, Avianca extends for an additional period, the current Elite level of our member at the moment of giving birth.

For example, if the LifeMiles member status in 2016 is “LifeMiles Silver Elite” and it expires in February 2017 and the baby was born on November 1st 2016, she can contact our Call Center to request the benefit in order to enjoy all the LifeMiles Silver privileges until February 2018. 

What must be considered?

  • The customer must be an Elite LifeMiles member (Silver, Gold or Diamond) at the birth of the baby
  • The request of this extension has to be done by calling the Avianca Call Center and having the child’s birth certificate at hand and scanned to send it to our agent.
