MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 16, 2009-- U.S. residents who visit Mexico can earn travel rewards simply by using the new AeroMexico Visa® or AeroMexico Visa Signature® Card for their purchases. U.S. Bank and AeroMexico now offer customers the opportunity to earn AeroMexico Club Premier Miles for all their purchases. Miles can be redeemed for travel from 16 U.S. airports served by AeroMexico to more than 40 destinations in Mexico as well as other popular international destinations, including Buenos Aires, Madrid, Paris, Rome, Tokyo, Sao Paulo and Shanghai, in the airline’s global flight network. Additionally, AeroMexico’s participation in the SkyTeam global airline alliance facilitates travel to hundreds of other destinations around the world.

“The AeroMexico Visa Card offers valuable travel reward opportunities for U.S. residents and business travelers who make frequent trips to Mexico and beyond,” said Pat Coll, executive vice president of U.S. Bank Retail Payment Solutions. “With U.S. Bank’s experience as a leading credit card issuer and AeroMexico’s status as the largest airline in Mexico, this partnership is an ideal match. The new AeroMexico Visa Card brings the airline’s mileage rewards program to a new U.S.-based audience with significant growth opportunities in key markets.”

Frank Galan, vice president, U.S. Operations, AeroMexico, said, “The new AeroMexico Visa and AeroMexico Visa Signature Cards are outstanding additions to the many benefits our passengers enjoy with our premier style of service. Our customers in the United States who use these cards will receive new travel rewards every time they shop or fly with AeroMexico to any of our more than 65 international destinations in Mexico and around the world.”

“AeroMexico Visa and AeroMexico Visa Signature Card holders will also automatically become members of Club Premier, AeroMexico’s frequent flyer program, which gives them access to other travel benefits like free upgrades and use of our airport lounges. Both business and leisure travelers will enjoy the many advantages they’ll receive through this complementary program,” added Galan.

New AeroMexico Visa cardholders can get on the fast track to award travel with up to 20,000 bonus miles (for AeroMexico Visa Signature cardholders) and a Complimentary Companion Ticket upon enrollment as well as discounted Web airfare purchases and double miles on AeroMexico ticket purchases using the card.
