Wheels Up replaces Delta Private Jets as the exclusive American Express Premium Private Jet Program provider for U.S. Centurion and Platinum cardmembers
Wheels Up is the new American Express Premium Private Jet Program partner. It replaces Delta Private Jets, the Amex partner since 2016. Wheels Up, of course, purchased Delta Private Jets in a deal that closed a year ago in January. In other words, Wheels Up essentially renewed the existing DPJ partnership. However, that analysis ignores that the terms of the new relationship are significantly different.
Are the American Express-Wheels Up benefits worth getting a Platinum card for $695?
American Express is adding Wheels Up as its Premium Private Jet Program partner, replacing Delta Private Jets. Wheels Up purchased Delta Private Jets in January 2020, and the existing American Express – DPJ partnership was set to expire on Aug. 31. Delta Private Jets had been the exclusive partner of the AX Premium Private Jet Program since 2016. But should you get the Amex Platinum card just to buy Wheels UP?
