Delta Air Lines and its wholly owned subsidiary, Delta AirElite, are introducing a service to allow customers to book scheduled commercial flights and on-demand private jet service in a single transaction using a pre-paid Air Elite account. Through Delta AirElite, Delta is the only U.S. airline offering customers combined access to commercial and private jet service.
“Today’s airline customer wants more travel flexibility, extensive reach and competitive pricing all from a single source,” said Jim Segrave, President - Delta AirElite. “Only the Air Elite Card gives customers the unique ability to book travel between destinations using a combination of commercial and on-demand business jet service. With a single phone call, customers can personalize their travel needs connecting them to points across the country and around the world.”
Air Elite cardholders can use their account to book travel on Delta or Delta AirElite by calling a dedicated client services team. Customers purchasing or renewing an Air Elite account gain around-the-clock access to:
* Private jet service at competitive, hourly rates that are guaranteed not to change for up to two years;
* Delta SkyMiles Diamond Medallion status, Sky Club membership and convenient Sky Priority benefits; and
* Select discounts on both Premium and Economy-class tickets when booked in conjunction with a private jet segment.
Earlier this year, Delta AirElite doubled its fleet size with the acquisition of Kinston, N.C.-based Segrave Aviation. The move combined Delta AirElite’s award-winning product with Segrave’s leadership in online flight management and operations control.
