Delta Offers Christmas Sale Fares

Delta Air Lines today introduced two sales - one for customers who want to travel only on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and another sale for customers making last-minute holiday plans to travel to select destinations in the United States and the Caribbean between Dec. 12 and 31, 2002.

Christmas Eve and Day Sale: Delta’s sale fares for travel only on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day begin as low as $68 round-trip, and are perfect for travelers who want to make a quick holiday trip. The Christmas Eve and Christmas Day fares require no advance purchase, and are available for travel between most cities within the 48 contiguous states served by Delta and the Delta Connection carriers. Customers taking advantage of the Christmas fares may leave at any time on Dec. 24 or 25, 2002, and must begin their return travel by midnight on Dec. 25, 2002. The fares are nonrefundable.

In past years, when Delta offered really low fares for travel at Christmas, customers have taken advantage of the savings to make surprise visits with family or to personally deliver gifts instead of shipping them.

December Sale to Select Destinations: Delta’s sale fares to select U.S. and Caribbean, Costa Rica and Mexico destinations must be purchased by Dec. 16, 2002, and all travel must be completed by Dec. 31, 2002. For travel to U.S. destinations, return travel may not begin prior to Dec. 23, 2002. For travel to/from the Caribbean, Costa Rica and Mexico, a three-night minimum stay is required. The fares are nonrefundable; see below for other important restrictions. Due to extremely heavy demand during the holiday travel period, seats may be limited or not available to Florida and other leisure destinations.
