Delta today unveiled the SkyTeam America pass at the 3rd annual Rhythms of the South - The Southern Marketplace show in New Orleans, Louisiana, 2-5 December. The new pass gives Delta and its SkyTeam passengers the opportunity to explore the USA and earn additional frequent flyer miles when discovering America.
Delta is the official airline sponsor of the Rhythms of the South - The
Southern Marketplace, a show designed to promote travel to the Southern Regions of the USA and strengthen international leisure business into the area. This year, Delta is partnering with the cities of Atlanta, Nashville, New Orleans, car hire company Avis, and 11 Southern States to host over 100 international tour operators from 20 countries around the world.
Jorge Fernandez, Delta’s vice-president International and Alliances, said,
“Delta’s goal is to provide maximum flexibility and convenience for our
customers. By offering the SkyTeam America Pass, passengers can now explore the Americas, and the dynamic region of The South, in an affordable and easy to use way.”
The SkyTeam America Pass allows customers holding long-haul tickets to purchase up to 10 coupons for travel in the US at a discounted fare. Prices for the Pass are based on the season of travel and the number of coupons purchased. To activate the Pass, the customer must reserve a seat up to 7 days before travel and once in the US can redeem the coupons anytime on Delta’s network or that of Delta’s SkyTeam partners. To earn frequent flyer miles, customers simply have to present their member airline frequent flyer number and earn miles entitled for that trip.
Delta will be highlighting the SkyTeam America Pass at The Southern
Marketplace to international tour operators, alongside its extensive network as a fast and convenient link to the Southern Regions of the USA. The show will also provide tour operators with the occasion to meet new business partners as well as a prime opportunity to network with over 100 US based suppliers in the South, developing strong trade and tourism opportunities.
Fernandez continued: “Working with our tourism partners from across The South, we can showcase the complete travel options that tourism customers flying to these destinations on Delta can experience.”
