Skyteam launches two-stop round-the-world ticket

2014 Skyteam flight attendants

Skyteam has launched a new two-stop option to its range of round-the-world passes.

The alliance says the new option is “perfect for regular travellers who require multi-destinations itineraries”, and “the perfect solution for those with important meetings in one country, one afternoon, and a presentation in another the same week”.

The pass can be booked up to seven days in advance, for travel on any of Skyteam’s 20 member carriers, in economy, business or first class.

The alliance gives the example of a two-stop itinerary, starting in New York, travelling to Paris, onto Shanghai and then back to New York, with an economy fare starting from US$5,650.

The new two-stop option means customers can now choose Skyteam Go Round The World Pass itineraries from between two and 15 stops.

The alliance recently announced plans to open its first branded airport lounge in North America, scheduled to open by the end of the year at Vancouver International.

  • Hi Ah,Mr.Bond – we’ve checked with Skyteam and the example economy fare is correct.

    When we asked why a traveller would book this fare as opposed to single tickets between these destinations, we were provided with the following:

    “One of the major benefits of the two-stop Go Round the World Pass is the flexibility, especially for business travellers. With RTW the schedule is flexible, date and flight number changes are free – which is usually not the case with one way fares booked end to end.

    “There are of course always variables when it comes to booking flights, date, time, class of airline, and the destination can all make an impact. This fare is also a set fare (for the itinerary listed below) so remains the same throughout the year. Fares are fixed, based on the city of departure.

    “SkyTeam have introduced this two-stop option in response to industry demand, as previously it was a three-stop minimum. Feedback from our partners and trade has been very positive so far, as this is not something offered by all alliances.

    “Plus, as always, by flying with SkyTeam you receive a range of benefits, including, through check in, seamless connections, plus a wide choice of flights with our members. In addition a frequent flyer will earn miles, get recognition on the rest of the airlines as if they was flying on their home carrier.”
