AMSTERDAM, January 23rd, 2019 – SkyTeam is offering globetrotting customers even greater flexibility, with the option to purchase per-segment upgrades when booking a Go Round the World pass in Economy or Business Class. The new buy-up feature is available now on SkyTeam’s online Round the World booking portal.
