Airline alliance Skyteam has announced a specialist fares service for marine and offshore industries.
SkyTeam Marine & Offshore will offer special fares to more than 1,000 destinations, with bespoke conditions for baggage allowance and ticket flexibility, for ship crews and offshore workers.
The scheme will initially include flights with six SkyTeam members – Aeroflot, Air France, Delta, KLM, Kenya Airways and Saudia – with more airlines planned to participate. The scheme will be run by IAS Global (International Airline Services Ltd), a B2B specialist in marine and energy sector air fares.
SkyTeam CEO Perry Cantarutti said that “working with IAS Global will ensure SkyTeam’s product is widely available to M&O specialist travel agencies worldwide through one convenient point of contact that includes multiple member airlines.”
