TA Airways and Korean Air strengthen their partnership beyond the Skyteam alliance with the signing of a frequent flyer agreement as part of Volare, the Italian flag carrier’s loyalty program.

Korean Air, a founding member of Skyteam, is the leading South Korean airline in Italy and the first airline partner of the Volare frequent flyer program. The Seoul-based operator, attentive to market demand, operates daily flights to one hundred destinations worldwide through its main hub at Incheon International Airport (ICN). This partnership with ITA Airways will guarantee Volare members extensive domestic and international connectivity between the two capitals.

When flying with Korean Air, as an alliance carrier, Skyteam Elite Plus members will be able to take advantage of SkyPriority services including priority check-in and boarding, additional baggage drop-off and drop-off, preferential access at transit counters and security checkpoint.

ITA Airways customers can also earn miles on Korean Air operated flights. Members need only register their Volare frequent flyer number at the time of booking to earn points in the Italian airline’s loyalty program.

“We are delighted to announce our partnership with Korean Air. For us, this agreement represents a further step in our growth strategy within SkyTeam,” said Emiliana Limosani, CCO of ITA Airways and CEO of Volare.

“Since ITA Airways officially joined SkyTeam, we have been working continuously with all partner airlines to ensure that frequent flyers enjoy the benefits and advantages of the Alliance,” added Limosani.

ITA Airways is set to welcome more airlines and business partners to its Volare program in the coming months, offering its customers greater choice and personalization.
