Delta Launches Porsche Transfer Program at LaGuardia, Seattle-Tacoma, Detroit
Delta began its program, which it says is intended to “transport select high-value customers from gate to gate,” at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in 2011. Today, it does 75 customer transfers there each day and the program has since expanded to additional airports. Last year, the carrier expanded the program to Los Angeles International Airport, New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, and Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
The Porsche program starts with a Delta representative meeting the arriving passenger at the aircraft door. The representative then escorts the passenger to a waiting Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid on the tarmac and drives him to his connecting gate.
Not every Diamond Medallion passenger will receive a transfer. The criteria for selection include a tight connection time and overall flight operations.
