Airline alliance SkyTeam has launched a branded product to meet the specific travel requirements of the marine and offshore (M&O) industry.
Called SkyTeam Marine and Offshore, it will be managed by IAS Global (International Airline Services Limited) and will initially include travel on six alliance members - Aeroflot, Air France, Delta, KLM, Kenya Airways and Saudia.
More airlines are set to participate in the coming months.
Members will offer one-way and round-trip special fares to more than 1,000 global destinations with bespoke conditions for baggage allowance and ticket flexibility to meet the travel needs of ship crews and offshore workers.
"Launching a dedicated Marine and Offshore product combines our members' M&O expertise with SkyTeam's track record of delivering a seamless travel experience," said Perry Cantarutti, SkyTeam's CEO and managing director.
"Meanwhile, working with IAS Global will ensure SkyTeam's product is widely available to M&O specialist travel agencies worldwide through one convenient point of contact that includes multiple member airlines."
SkyTeam already operates a product specifically for the Meetings (MICE) industry to simplify travel to small and large-scale international events and another offering a tailor-made, competition-law compliant solution for corporate contracting.
