The new initiative, which is being progressively rolled across the network of SkyTeam’s member airlines, will offer VIP treatment to premium passengers. China Southern has become the first SkyTeam member in China to add the service, which is initially being launched at its Guangzhou and Beijing hubs. All of the airline’s Chinese hubs are expected to offer the service by the end of the year.
The programme provides Elite Plus and Gold Card members with access to VIP services available at each airport including China Southern’s new business class lounge at Guangzhou’s Baiyun Airport. As the name suggests, SkyPriority offers priority check-in, boarding, transfers, ticketing and baggage delivery with signage directing eligible passengers to dedicated staff and services.
All SkyTeam member airlines are expected to roll out the service at more than 1,000 airports around the world, including 164 used by China Southern, by the end of the year.
