ERLANGER, Ky. and ATLANTA, Ga. – [April 4, 2017] – Delta Private Jets customers who transfer flights at select airports are now able to travel seamlessly and luxuriously, both on the ground and in the air, thanks to a new service from Delta Private Jets and Porsche.
Delta Private Jets-branded Porsche SUVs will provide complimentary transfer service at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International (CVG), Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International (ATL), John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), and Los Angeles International (LAX) airports. Delta Private Jets Card members making connections between private and commercial flights at those airports will ride in high style in one of the latest Porsche models. Upon arrival, the traveler will be greeted at the private plane by a driver, ride luxuriously in the Porsche to the main terminal, and be escorted and expedited through security by Delta agents to the connecting flight.
“Our customers expect the highest level of service and the best there is to offer – and being transferred between flights in a Porsche certainly delivers the highest level of comfort and care,” said David Sneed, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Delta Private Jets. “Delta Private Jets and Porsche are two top premium brands, and by coordinating our efforts we are able to enhance the experience for our customers as they travel the globe.”
In addition to its partnership with Porsche, Delta Private Jets is the only private jet company affiliated with a major commercial airline, Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL).
