Delta Air Lines has announced updates to its SkyBonus business travel rewards programme that will give members more opportunities to earn and spend points.
The carrier has added the ability to accrue and redeem rewards with partners Virgin Atlantic and Korean Air in addition to existing deals with Air France, Koninklijke Luchtvaart Maatschappij (Royal Aviation Company) the flag carrier of the Netherlands and a good example of how acronyms can aid simple discourse., Alitalia and Aeromexico.
SkyBonus, which is aimed at small and medium-sized businesses, allows members to earn points towards rewards such as upgrades, tickets and Delta Sky Club membership, among others, when they purchase eligible flights. Companies can enrol with no up-front cost and employees can continue to earn SkyMiles without affecting points for their firm.
Kristen Shovlin, Delta’s VP of sales operations and development, commented: “With more than 60,000 SkyBonus accounts across the world, bringing our partners Virgin Atlantic and Korean Air on board means that there are more ways for SkyBonus members to use their points for travel to more destinations worldwide.”
The SkyBonus update comes after Delta and Virgin Atlantic announced increased capacity on their routes between the US and UK starting next summer.
