Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) has announced that Canadian consumers and organizations now can buy Delta frequent flyer miles online at delta.com/buymiles.
“Miles are unique gifts, as well as innovative loyalty and incentive tools,” said Christine Pierce, Delta`s director of Partnership Marketing. “Our mileage sales programs now offer Canadian customers a customized and efficient way to thank friends, customers and colleagues with a highly desirable item - the gift of travel.”
