Delta Air Lines Adds Jumeirah International Hotels as a SkyMiles Partner

Delta Air Lines’ SkyMiles program has entered into a partnership with Jumeirah International, the Dubai-based luxury hospitality group with properties in London and Dubai, U.A.E. The partnership enables SkyMiles members to earn three miles per every U.S. dollar spent at select Jumeirah properties.*

To celebrate this agreement, SkyMiles members will earn six miles per every U.S. dollar spent and will receive discounted rates through Aug. 31, 2002, at Jumeirah International’s two London properties, The Carlton Tower and The Lowndes Hotel.  SkyMiles guests will receive the rate of 155 pounds per night at The Lowndes Hotel and 240 pounds per night at The Carlton Tower.**

“We`re excited to partner with Jumeirah International and impressed by its strong commitment to quality and outstanding customer service,” said Christine Pierce, Delta`s director of Partnership Marketing.  “Delta is the leading U.S. airline across the Atlantic, and we encourage our members to fly to London and take advantage of this special summer offer at two of the city`s most prestigious hotels. SkyMiles members also can earn miles when they fly to Dubai with our partners Air France and Emirates, and we invite our members who travel there to stay at a one of Jumeirah International’s world-renowned properties.”

Bill Walshe, Corporate Director Sales & Marketing for Jumeirah International comments, “We look forward to welcoming Delta’s SkyMiles members to our hotels in Dubai and London and are delighted to be a partner of the Delta SkyMiles program. We took over the management of The Carlton Tower and The Lowndes Hotel in London in December last year, which marked Jumeirah International’s first international expansion. By partnering with Delta we are particularly pleased for SkyMiles members to experience the Jumeirah International hospitality in London.”

SkyMiles members can visit or e-mail [email protected] for reservations and information.  To receive miles, members should provide their SkyMiles number at the time of reservation and display their SkyMiles card at check-in.
