Airlines’ Corporate Loyalty Programs Key Updates

As many airlines are changing their corporate loyalty programs, we thought this would be a good opportunity to look at the main key updates released recently to keep you up to date.


Karen, one of Tangerine’s account managers, put together a list just for you:


American Airlines:


  • AA’s Business Extra program has been discontinued

  • Points must be redeemed by January 31, 2024 

  • Travel agency tickets do not qualify




United Airlines:


  • United PerksPlus will only be exclusively available to corporate customers booking through a travel agency. That’s good news for you since you book your travel through Tangerine Travel.

    • Effective, February 1, 2024.


To verify your company has a PerksPlus account or if you would like to sign up, please contact your Corporate Account Manager.




Delta Air Lines:


  • As of early January, 2024 (the specific timing of which will be communicated by Delta) 

  • To continue accruing your company points, you will need to opt in for SkyMiles For Busines

  • It will convert the dollars your company spends on eligible flights with Delta, Air France, KLM, Aeromexico, Virgin Atlantic or any of Delta’s codeshare partners into miles

    • Here’s how:

    • Log into your SkyBonus account at

    • Verify your contact information is correct

    • Select the Opt-in link from the post-login homepage

    • The new account must be linked to a SkyMiles account


Benefits of SkyBonus:
