Amex Meet And Greet services launched at Delhi Airport

American Express is continuously innovating on the product proposition of the American Express Platinum Card. Over the year, they have been bringing about many changes to the card product, only for the better. Now, another new one pops up, although for a limited period initially, which is the Amex Meet and Greet Service.

Amex Meet and Greet service launched for travel out of Delhi Airport

American Express is now offering a Meet and Greet Service for Domestic trips out of Delhi Airport to customers who book their travel with the American Express Platinum Travel Services. As a part of the new proposition, Amex is offering, to the Platinum Cardmember (primary) and up to three accompanying people, one Meet and Greet per quarter.

Amex Meet and Greet

The Meet and Greet service includes:

  • Meet Cardmember on arrival at the passenger drop off zone, with baggage porter at the gate.
  • Hold an American Express branded sign with the cardmember’s name
  • Coordinate with the airline for a wheelchair if needed
  • Carry out all check-in processes, subject to airline and security regulations
  • Provide Cardmember with buggy from security to Boarding gates
  • Escort Card members into the lounge and ensure they are comfortable.
  • Meet Cardmember at the lounge when it is time to board and escort to the boarding gate (arrange first or the last boarding as needed)
  • Assist with boarding, avoid all queues at the boarding gate
  • Remain on standby until the Cardmember has boarded the flight.
  • Assist with hand-carry baggage from arrival gate to Boarding gate

While Citibank used to have such a service for their Prestige Cardmembers in the APAC region, it was withdrawn as the card fell from good times. Allways, which is a part of the Plaza Premium Group, will be handling the services for Amex.

For now, it seems American Express is building expertise on this product, so it is only being offered for a period till February 2022, and one Platinum Cardmember can only avail of this one time per quarter. This is similar to the Meet and Assist service which is already offered to the Centurion Cardmembers globally and only valid when tickets are booked via the American Express Platinum Travel Services.

Any service for an extra person over and above 4, will be chargeable, and children aged two or over are counted as one person.

Cardmembers are required to reach out to Platinum Travel & Lifestyle Services for booking the service a minimum of 48 hours before travel.

Bottomline

American Express has added one more feather to their cap with the launch of this new service, even if it is only at the Delhi Airport for the time being. Apart from American Express, only Axis Bank provides such meet and greet services for some of their higher-end cardmembers at the moment.

  1. Axis Bank offers 8 services each year to their Magna Card members. The Card costs 10,000 rs plus GST and you get back a Rs 10,000 voucher and these meet and greet services 8 times each year. Accompanying guests count as 2 services. Much better than AMEX. BTW same service provider for both Axis and Magna

    • @Raj Khalid, thanks. Here, accompanying guests get counted in the same service, and Amex gives roughly about 50-60K INR cashback straight up every year, apart from the points and everything else. So, no point in comparing. Everyone has their own circumstances and cards and they got to make the best of what they have.

  2. On the Experiences App, the meet and greet is advertised for many airports incl DEL,DXB,LHR for the Platinum card. I took it as an oversight and thought they just forgot ti change the sentence when they copied from Centurion. But is it a sign of good things on the way?

  3. Great info. Thanks @Ajay.
    What about after the 1st time in a quarter. If i’d like to avail the service again, is it possible to do so if i’m willing to pay separately .
    Thank you as always.

  4. 2 Questions Ajay!

    1) Can we avail this If we book tickets via any other OTA? Or only for flight tickets via Amex travel?

    2) Is there something similar like this on Arrival at T3 as well?
