SkyPriority reaches 5th year, more than 1000 airports

Five years ago, SkyTeam became the first global airline alliance to offer aligned priority benefits for top customers when it launched SkyPriority, the airline alliance said.

Designed to make travel more seamless for First, Business, and Elite Plus passengers flying on all SkyTeam member airlines, SkyPriority is now offered at more than 1,000 airports across the globe.

SkyPriority was initially developed by Delta Air Lines, which launched the service in 2010. It proved successful in delivering a superior airport experience for top travellers. In 2012, SkyPriority became the first customer-facing initiative to be implemented by all SkyTeam member airlines.

SkyPriority offers eligible travellers a suite of priority airport benefits. SkyTeam continues to invest in SkyPriority, adding fast-track security and immigration access at an increasing number of global airports.

SkyTeam is a global airline alliance with 20 member airlines that serve 665 million customers each year on more than 17,340 daily flights to 1,057 destinations in 177 countries.
