China Airlines launches SkyPriority
The SkyPriority service includes priority check-in areas, priority baggage drop off, priority services at airport ticket offices and transfer desks, priority security queues, priority boarding and priority baggage handling.
China Airlines has launched SkyPriority as part of the SkyTeam alliance’s roll-out of the service.
SkyPriority is aimed at First Class, Business Class and SkyTeam Elite Plus passengers, as well as China Airlines’ Paragon and Emerald card members.
The services are designed to expedite processing through the airport and include priority check-in, priority baggage drop off, priority passport control queues, priority boarding and priority baggage handling.
China Airlines passengers who qualify for the service will be able to make use of the facilities at 68 airports.
SkyPriority will be implemented by SkyTeam members at more than 800 airports during the initial phase, extending to more than 1,000 airports in 2013.
“SkyPriority is one part of our ongoing effort to improve the customer experience. By increasing consistency at airports, we make travel faster and more convenient for our customers,” said Michael Wisbrun, SkyTeam’s Managing Director. “This is the biggest collective SkyTeam project to date and a prime example of how our members are extensively working together to bring greater benefits to our customers.”
