AMSTERDAM, 30 January 2013 – SkyTeam, the global airline alliance, is launching a fare promotion for customers planning a Round the World trip in 2013. With 1,000 destinations to choose from, globetrotters can take advantage of a 10% discount off SkyTeam’s lowest economy class Round the World fare. The promotion is valid on tickets of up to 26,000 miles purchased from 1 February until 31 March 2013. Tickets must be purchased seven days in advance of travel.
SkyTeam added 77 new cities to its worldwide network last year, thanks to four new members joining the alliance in 2012. SkyTeam’s 1,000 destinations now include exciting locations such as: Ushuaia and Iguazú in Argentina; Colombo in Sri Lanka; and Macau in Greater China.
To help customers maximize their travel options, SkyTeam has enhanced its Round the World planning tool on skyteam.com. This easy-to-use, online service helps customers select flights for their ideal journey. Once customers have built an itinerary, they can share it with Facebook friends by posting their travel plans directly on their walls.
“Top of our Facebook customers’ travel wish-lists for 2013 are exciting cities such as Rio de Janeiro, London, New York, Beijing and Sydney, all of which are within easy reach from every continent thanks to the combined route maps of our 19 members,” said Jerome d’Anglejan – Director Sales, SkyTeam. “SkyTeam’s Round the World promotional fare is bringing customers even closer to their dream destinations by offering savings they can put to better use while enjoying their travels.”
