Wheels Up Closes on Delta Private Jets Partnership

Wheels Up and Delta Air Lines have closed on their transaction and partnership agreement and will begin unveiling cross-platform benefits for current and prospective Wheels Up and Delta Private Jets members. The deal combines the two private aviation membership programs, which have nearly 200 aircraft, and more than 8,000  customers.

“By adding Delta Private Jets and partnering with Delta, our membership platform has evolved to one that can fulfill a vast range of flight needs on a very large scale,” said Wheels Up founder and CEO Kenny Dichter.
