Delta Air Lines and Wheels Up are partnering on at least three television sponsorships as the latest move showing how the Atlanta-based airline plans to boost the private jet company.
Wheels Up quietly started allowing non-members to book charter flights. It’s also launching a frequent flyer program and will allow Delta SkyMiles members to redeem miles on Wheels Up
Wheels Up has quietly begun allowing non-members to book charter flights through its app. The New York-based private aviation provider will also launch a frequent flyer program for its private jet customers by the end of the year. At the same time, members of the Delta Air Lines SkyMiles program will be able to redeem miles for Wheels Up products and services.
David Sneed, the hard-charging President and COO of Delta Private Jets (DPJ), left the subsidiary of Delta Air Lines, Inc. several weeks ago. While officials from DPJ didn’t respond to a request for comment, Private Jet Card Comparisons understands a new leader will be announced in the next couple weeks. Sneed’s profile is no longer on the DPJ website.
Skymiles and American Express Membership Rewards points can now be redeemed for private jet cards with Delta Private Jets.
