Delta and partner WestJet today launched enhanced elite reciprocal loyalty benefits for Delta Medallion members and WestJet Rewards members traveling with either airline. The ability to earn miles has been available since 2014 and the ability to use miles and WestJet dollars on either airline has been available since 2016. These enhancements are part of a shared goal to improve and deepen the advantages for customers when traveling between the carriers.
Subject to the customer’s status or tier, loyalty customers will now receive priority boarding and check-in, lounge access, preferred seats with the seat selection fee waived and additional checked baggage allowance with priority drop-off and handling through the journey. Loyalty customers can also take advantage of priority security check at airports where the service is available.
The airlines already have an extensive codeshare relationship with the ability to view partner-branded products with real-time availability and purchase tickets in all booking channels. Delta and WestJet customers can also book and pay for seats on any codeshare flight after buying their ticket on delta.com or westjet.com.
Both airlines are dedicated to customer care and peace of mind for travelers and employees across every point in the journey during the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s why, through the Delta CareStandard and WestJet’s Safety Above All, a range of measures have been put in place to deliver a safer, cleaner experience – including enhanced sanitization of aircraft, more frequent cleaning of high-touch surfaces and facilities, the deployment of high-efficiency air filters onboard and face mask requirements.
Delta and WestJet advise customers to check the entry requirements at their destination prior to travel.
