Air Travel: Delta to Begin Boarding by Fare, New oneworld Member




New boarding policies and a new oneworld member lead this week's air travel news. 

Delta's New Boarding By Fare

This week Delta reported that it will shift from boarding by zone to boarding by branded fare purchased, as of January 23, 2019. SkyMiles Medallion Members and eligible Delta SkyMiles American Express Credit Card Members will continue to receive priority boarding, the airline said. 

As a result of the new policy, boarding zones for Delta-operated flights worldwide will be renamed to reflect the branded fare purchased. The new boarding order name will be featured in the airline's online shopping experience, boarding passes and the "today" screen of the Delta app, and on jetway screens and on boarding signage at the gate. Each fare will also have an associated color, visible on boarding screens and signs at the gate.

Royal Air Maroc became the newest member of the oneworld airline alliance this week. The airline will officially become part of the group in mid-2020, while its regional subsidiary, Royal Air Maroc Express, will join the organization as an affiliate member at the same time. 

As part of the alliance, Royal Air Maroc will ofer the full range of alliance customer services and benefits; more than 1 million members of the airline’s Safar Flyer loyalty program will be able to earn and redeem rewards on all oneworld member airlines and with its top-tier members able to use the alliance’s more than 650 airport lounges worldwide.
