Delta and Porsche Add Gate-to-Gate Transfers in Three Cities (VIDEO)

Delta has recently announced that three of its major air hubs -- Detroit’s Metropolitan Airport, New York’s LaGuardia Airport, and Seattle’s Seattle-Tacoma International Airport -- will join other key transfer ports (such as those in Atlanta, Los Angeles, and New York-JFK) in providing exclusive SkyMiles Diamond Medallion Miles customers with a gate-to-gate transfer service via Porsche

Although Porsches cannot be requested in advance, a fleet of 19 vehicles is available to assist high-status customers in between flights. According to Delta’s Elite Services Team, the “surprise element” of the service makes it more appealing to fliers by treating them to an unexpected bonus.

"Our continuing partnership with Porsche gives us hundreds of opportunities to save the day by offering unexpected pick-ups in an even more unexpected vehicle, with a unique surprise and delight to connect them to their destination," says Customer Experience Director, Cheryl Scheck.
