LATAM Pass is the loyalty program of LATAM — an airline created when LAN and TAM merged in 2012. Recently, the airline left the Oneworld alliance after Delta Air Lines purchased 20% of the South American airline , making waves in the region’s travel industry.

As fall approaches and temperatures cool down, crowds descend on many national parks to witness the annual ritual of leaves turning shades of red, yellow and orange. But because of the pandemic, visiting autumn hot spots such as Acadia, Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains national parks is a bit more complicated.

The first thing to know is that national parks are undergoing a phased reopening on a park-by-park basis. Check individual park websites to ensure attractions and facilities are open.
