Delta has raised the bar on the Corporate Traveler Experience with Priority Standby for corporate customers. The new Priority Standby benefit grants your travelers tie-breaker priority over other similarly situated customers. Please share this good news with travelers in your agency.

Delta prioritizes Corporate Travelers throughout their trip with our Corporate Priority product which now includes Priority Boarding for corporate travelers who are SkyMiles members, and upgrade prioritization for Medallion® members. And, in the unlikely event of a delay or cancellation, our efficient rebooking process helps to protect your employees from involuntary denied boarding situations and downgrades.
