September 7, 2016, Written By Natalie Rutledge

Consumers who travel by private jet will soon receive some additional perks from American Express.

American Express and Delta Private Jets have partnered to offer a new suite of benefits for card members. The Premium Private Jet Program offers Platinum card members a reduced fee and a number of other benefits when they purchase the Delta Private Jets Card Membership or use Delta’s On-Demand Charter Services.

“Our Card Members love to travel, and they depend on us to not only make their journey more comfortable, but also make travel more seamless,” said Janey Whiteside, SVP Charge and Benefits for American Express. “Partnering with Delta Private Jets opens up one of the most premium travel experiences for our most jet-setting Card Members, giving them access to a custom, private travel experience at a value and with benefits available only with their Platinum or higher level Card.”

David Sneed, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Delta Private Jets, noted, “At Delta Private Jets, we are focused on exceeding the expectations of every traveler, before, during and after their flight. We welcome this opportunity to deliver an outstanding benefit and experience for American Express Card Members with the new Premium Private Jet Program.”

American Express already offers cobranded cards with Delta. Card members can transfer their membership rewards to their Delta SkyMiles account so they can earn free commercial trips faster.

Delta has a fleet of over 70 Wi-Fi equipped private jets available.
