California-based fintech Cardless has partnered with Avianca Airlines’ loyalty programme LifeMiles to launch two new credit cards in the US. The two new cards are exclusively available on the American Express network.

This partnership leverages Cardless’ innovative financial technology and Avianca’s extensive aviation network. The aim is to enhance the travel experience for customers in the US. Avianca is Colombia’s largest airline and the second-largest in South America. Avianca is also a member of Star Alliance. Through LifeMiles, its loyalty programme, members can accrue and redeem miles for travel to more than 1,300 destinations

New cards designed to cater to the evolving needs of Avianca LifeMiles members in the US

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Avianca to launch the Avianca LifeMiles credit cards,” said Michael Spelfogel, President and Co-Founder of Cardless. “This collaboration will provide greater access to rewards and deliver superior value to Avianca’s LifeMiles customers in the US as we expand our offerings into the Latin American travel sector.”

Matt Vincett, CEO of LifeMiles, added: “Together with Cardless and American Express, we are pleased to launch excellent new credit card options for mileage enthusiasts. The Premium card, I believe, is especially compelling. Both of our offerings give cardholders the ability to earn miles quickly, and then enjoy discounts when their miles are redeemed. We’ve even packaged-in an Elite status to make reward travel more enjoyable.”

“This collaboration with Cardless and Avianca Airlines underscores our dedication to providing travellers with innovative solutions and premium experiences that enhance their journeys. Our continued work with fintechs helps companies like Avianca LifeMiles bring their payment products to life on our global payments network,” said William Stredwick, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Global Network Services North America at American Express.
