Delta and American Express launch first-ever credit card design made from Boeing 747 metal
For the first time, travelers will be able to carry a piece of an airplane in their wallet. Delta Air Lines and American Express are launching a limited-edition Boeing 747 credit card design made from 25% metal from a retired 747-400 from the airline’s fleet.
From June 16 through August 3, 2022, customers can apply for the Boeing 747 Delta SkyMiles Reserve and Reserve Business Boeing 747 card, while supplies last. Along with best-in-class travel benefits, it comes with access to exclusive content through an augmented reality experience that comes with the welcome kit. Created especially for the limited edition card design, the augmented reality experience features the story of the “Queen of the Skies.”
“The idea of making a metal credit card out of actual airplane metal began years ago, and the creativity and innovation that was required to achieve this is incredibly meaningful,” said Dwight James, S.V.P. of Customer Engagement & Loyalty at Delta and CEO of Delta Vacations. “We’ve partnered with Amex to transform a piece of Delta’s history into a collector’s item you can use in your everyday. The 747’s legacy lives on for a new generation of Delta flyers through this first-of-its-kind credit card that our members will be proud to keep in their wallets.”
“This is the most unique card design Delta and Amex have created to date,” said Jon Gantman, SVP and General Manager of Cobrand Product Management at American Express. “To transform fuselage into metal that can withstand the wear and tear of everyday use while still functioning as a contactless credit card was a huge feat. This special-edition Boeing 747 card design is one more way Delta and American Express continue to partner together to bring Card Members unique products and experiences.”
