Benefits with the SkyTeam alliance
The global airline alliances provide benefits both for its member airlines and for you as a passenger. This is the case both with SkyTeam and with the two other alliances, Star Alliance and Oneworld. The SkyTeam alliance makes it possible for you as a customer to access a larger global network, and you will also access better connectivity. In other words, you can use several airlines on your trip but will just need one ticket.
Another benefit with the alliance is that you can earn and redeem Frequent Flyer Miles. It’s also normal that the partnering airlines share services, which can be very convenient for you as a customer. If you become an Elite passenger you can also take part in benefits such as preferred seating, extra baggage allowance and priority check-in.
