Delta Air Lines Offers Bonus Miles for Travel to South America

Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) today announced a SkyMiles bonus for travel to five South American cities between May 1 and June 30, 2002.

SkyMiles members may earn up to 25,000 bonus miles if they purchase and travel on a round-trip Delta flight, connecting through Atlanta, to Buenos Aires, Argentina; Bogota, Columbia; Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Brazil; or Santiago, Chile. Members traveling on a ticket booked in D, J or C class (the C class ticket only applies to the Bogota flights) will earn 25,000 bonus miles per round-trip flight; a ticket booked in Y, B, M or I class will earn 15,000 bonus miles per round trip; and a ticket booked in H or K class will earn 5,000 bonus miles per round trip.

“This promotion is being offered during South Americas autumn months—a great time of the year to enjoy the beaches of Brazil, the mountains of the Andes and the other beautiful sights and sounds of the continent,” said Rob Borden, Delta`s general manager of SkyMiles Customer Loyalty Programs. “Plus, during this promotion, SkyMiles members can earn up to 25,000 bonus miles for BusinessElite travel, enough for a domestic SkySaver award ticket.”

To receive the bonus miles, members must enroll in the promotion and complete travel between May 1 and June 30, 2002. Travel must originate in the United States and connect through Atlanta. To register for this promotion, visit or call 800-558-3358 and enter code 2041. SkyMiles members may earn bonus miles on up to two round-trip flights with this promotion.
