Skyteam To Extend SkyPriority Across All Members

Global airline alliance Skyteam has announced it is to extend SkyPriority, a series of distinctively branded priority airport services offered to its Elite Plus and premium cabin customers, across its member airlines. The move is intended to align the alliance to a common and consistent service standard on the ground.


The SkyPriority services will be distinctively branded at airports and displayed on boarding passes. Eligible passengers will be able to enjoy benefits including priority check-in areas, priority bag-drop, priority service at airport ticket offices, transfer desks, priority security clearance (where available), priority boarding and priority baggage handling. Skyteam also revealed that additional benefits are planned to be introduced in the future.


Successfully introduced by Delta Airlines in 2010, the program is planned to be rolled-out in March 2012 at selected hubs. Amsterdam, Atlanta, Guangzhou, Nairobi, Shanghai and Taipei will be amongst the first airports where the program will be launched, before being gradually implemented at over 1,000 stations by early 2013.


Skyteam currently has fifteen member airlines, including Aeroflot, Aeromexico, Air Europa, Air France, Alitalia, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Czech Airlines, Delta Airlines, Kenya Airways, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Korean Air, TAROM and Vietnam Airlines. Together, the alliance offers its 487 million annual customers globally more than 14,500 daily flights to 926 destinations in 173 countries.
