Delta will now allow members of its business loyalty programme Skybonus to earn and redeem points with its partner airline Virgin Atlantic, and to redeem them with Korean Air.

Air France, KLM, Alitalia and Aeromexico are already part of the scheme, which allows small and medium-sized companies to spend points on trips, upgrades, lounge access and more.

Travellers are able to simultaneously earn personal points through Delta’s Skymiles programme.

“Delta SkyBonus is the industry-leading travel loyalty program for small and medium-size enterprises that also has the largest global reach, spanning 53 countries in eight languages,” said Kristen Shovlin, Delta’s Vice President — Sales Operations and Development.

“With more than 60,000 SkyBonus accounts across the world, bringing our partners Virgin Atlantic and Korean Air on board means that there are more ways for SkyBonus members to use their points for travel to more destinations worldwide.”

Virgin Atlantic recently joined Air France-KLM’s SME rewards programme Bluebiz, which Delta and Kenya Airways are also part of.

Air France-KLM, Virgin Atlantic and Delta are in the process of launching a joint venture to replace their separate US-United Kingdom and US-Continental Europe arrangements.
