Earn Miles with Delta

REWARDING YOU  
FOR YOUR LOYALTY


With the SkyMiles program, you earn miles and Medallion® Qualification Miles (MQMs) when you fly to any of our nearly 330 worldwide destinations. Plus, you rack up miles and MQMs faster with select fare class and Medallion status bonuses.

BETTER AT REWARDING YOU

With the 2015 SkyMiles program, members will earn miles toward Award Travel based on ticket price (base fare and carrier-imposed surcharges, but excluding government-imposed taxes and fees) for Delta-marketed flights, instead of distance flown. So when you pay a higher price, you will be rewarded with more miles — up to 75,000 per ticket. Members also will enjoy more Award Seats available at the lowest redemption levels and more redemption levels overall as well as new redemption options, making it easier to redeem your miles. See below to learn how you will earn miles for travel beginning January 1, 2015.

The redeemable miles earned toward Award Travel differ from Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs). MQMs are used to determine Medallion status and will continue to be based on distance flown and fare class paid.

Is this a Delta-marketed flight?

Not sure if you're on a Delta-marketed flight? There's an easy way to check. The marketing carrier is determined by the two-letter airline code in the flight number. So if your flight has a DL flight number, it qualifies for our mileage crediting rules. If you are instead flying a partner-marketed flight, the miles, MQMs and MQDs you earn will vary by carrier.

Please see earning with airline partners and then select an airline to view each carrier's full accrual chart.
