A new surprise-and-delight program by Delta, Delta Vacations and Delta Private Jets will soon allow Delta’s SkyMiles Medallion members traveling on select commercial Delta flights to upgrade an existing reservation to fly privately.
“Private travel offers concierge-level services that Delta’s premium customers are sure to appreciate, and Delta Vacations is pleased to offer opportunities for these experiences,” said John Caldwell, President–Delta Vacations. “This is an innovative way for us to thank valued Delta customers for their loyalty.”
The private upgrade opportunities will be limited to select passengers in specific markets where an available Delta Private Jets aircraft is otherwise not in use. Customers will be contacted by Delta Vacations via email and offered the upgrade for a fee, which includes transportation to the airport’s private aviation area and complimentary on-board catering.
“Delta, Delta Vacations, and Delta Private Jets are uniquely able to deliver on a program that gives customers the ability to upgrade to an open seat on a private jet,” said Cyril Turner, President, Delta Global Services and Delta Private Jets & S.V.P.–Delta Connection. “This is another way that Delta continues to provide exceptional customer service and a unique travel experience for its most valuable flyers.”
Other terms and conditions will apply, and the offers are subject to availability. The program is patent-pending.
