A MUST-HAVE GUIDE TO DELTA'S DON'T-MISS BENEFITS
THE BASICS

As a member of SkyMiles, you have the opportunity to earn and redeem miles with a world-class airline, serving 350+ destinations.

As a member, you'll enjoy:
  • Many ways to earn miles by flying with Delta and our SkyTeam® members such as Air France, Alitalia, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, and more.
