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.
The airline says that, through Delta AirElite, it is the only U.S. carrier that offers 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,” says Jim Segrave, president of 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 Air Lines 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 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, North Carolina-based Segrave Aviation. The move combined Delta AirElite’s product with Segrave’s leadership in online flight management and operations control.
Established in 1984, Delta AirElite operates a fleet of more than 45 owned and managed aircraft and is based in Cincinnati. According to Delta, Delta AirElite consistently receives awards for outstanding customer service and has continuously held the coveted ARG/US Platinum safety rating longer than any other operator in the world.
