Tarmac Express - Delta and Porsche

If you are Porsche enough (sorry about that – Editor), that is a lucky Delta SkyMiles Diamond Medallion member, you might be in for an apron transfer by Porsche from now onwards at New York LaGuardia, Seattle-Tacoma Detroit Metropolitan and airports. 

The three new airports have been added to the service.

The programme began as a trial at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in 2011 and expanded to Los Angeles, New York-JFK and Minneapolis-St Paul in 2013. Its success is that  Delta and Porsche have transferred more than 35,000 high-value customers in the last year. 

In another move Delta Air Lines BusinessElite customers can now enjoy a seamless and stress-free transfer from car to lounge in less than 10 minutes via the Virgin Atlantic Upper Class Wing at Heathrow T3.
Delta passengers arriving at the airport by private car will be met by Virgin Atlantic’s concierge staff who will provide printed boarding passes and swiftly handle any checked luggage.  Passengers will then be whizzed through the Private Security Channel, beating the queues and leaving more time to enjoy the Clubhouse.

The service will provide BusinessElite customers with the same experience Virgin Atlantic’s Upper Class customers currently enjoy through the Upper Class Wing service.
From March 2015, Delta and Virgin Atlantic will offer 37 peak day flights between the UK and the United States. www.delta.com
