Delta Air Lines will expand its successful customer Porsche service to New York's LaGuardia Airport, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and Detroit Metropolitan Airport this month.
Through its pioneering partnership between a U.S. airline and automotive manufacturer, Delta and Porsche have transferred more than 35,000 high-value customers in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul and New York-JFK in the last year.
Transferring select SkyMiles Diamond Medallion customers with Porsche vehicles is just another way that Delta delivers exceptional customer service for its most valuable flyers while providing a unique travel experience.
There are 19 Porsche vehicles used across the Delta system to whisk customers quickly between connecting gates.
The service cannot be requested or reserved but is provided to Diamond Medallion customers based on a number of factors including the day's flight operations, connections times between flights for customers and a member's status. Once customers are added to the priority list for the service by Delta's Elite Services team, they are greeted at the aircraft boarding door and escorted with their baggage to an awaiting vehicle and on to their connecting gate.
