UK Transport Awards 2024

SME News- UK Transport Awards 2024 / 26 SME Airline Group of the Year 2024: Virgin Atlantic, Air France, KLM, Delta Air Lines Virgin Atlantic, Air France, KLM and Delta Air Lines offer an extensive network from 18 UK airports plus plenty of loyalty benefits through their shared passion for creating a seamless travel experience. With their joint corporate loyalty programme, bluebiz, the four airlines take business travel one step further. Here we highlight some of the key features of the programme as this seasoned group of airlines supports SMEs and wins its title in our UK Transport Awards 2024. Enter the bluebiz corporate loyalty program, where this amalgamation of reputable airlines have come together to participate in something which delivers intelligent and beneficial options for any business’ travel budget. The advantages of bluebiz are astounding however, its blue credits have to be its number one USP. With blue credits, it’s entirely possible – and extremely simple – to experience instant savings across a network of renowned airlines. By flying with Air France, KLM, Delta Air Lines, and Virgin Atlantic, businesses are able to earn blue credits across every trip. After being issued a bluebiz number, which can be quoted for each ticket booking, all individuals earn £1 for every blue credit they receive. Then, once the bluebiz credits have been collected they can be exchanged for tickets, upgrades, and flight related services which help individuals to feel more comfortable during their flight. Delivering free tickets, including all taxes and surcharges, giving individuals the chance to take more luggage while introducing upgrades for a more comfortable flight experience, allowing for ‘book now pay later’ options via travel agencies, and helping companies to compensate part of their carbon footprint over the last twelve months, bluebiz’s comprehensive program ensures a high level of customer satisfaction and ease when travelling. Of course, for businesses that require air travel on a regular basis, it’s easy to build a healthy balance of blue credits which result in linear savings and a better journey every time. Even offering the chance to retro claim blue credits – even if a bluebiz number is forgotten at the time of booking – this program is a wellrounded, fair, and straightforward option for making savings on trips, increasing traveller comfort, allowing for free name changes on tickets, priority treatments should trips not go to plan, and reducing carbon footprints for any company wishing to use its services. This group of airlines, in partnership with bluebiz, strive to raise the bar, and benefits, for every individual travelling with them. From Air France to Virgin Atlantic, and Delta Air Lines to KLM, there’s always a way to experience excellence in flight – and the group is set to continue improving customer satisfaction while bettering businesses across the globe. With such benefits on offer as part of the bluebiz programme and a combined network of destinations that span the globe, it is easy to see why Virgin Atlantic, Air France, KLM, and Delta Air Lines are this year's SME Airline Group of the Year.
