Delta goes for global expansion of the Buy Miles programme
Delta Air Lines has expanded its Buy and Transfer Miles programmes, enabling customers from around the world to purchase, gift and transfer miles online at delta.com. (2/23/2007)
Through a partnership with Points International, the Buy Miles programme provides customers worldwide with opportunities to purchase miles for themselves or family and friends for as little as $30. The Transfer Miles programme allows customers to transfer miles directly from one SkyMiles account to the account of another SkyMiles member. Both programmes require a minimum of 1,000 miles per transaction.
“With the expansion of the Buy and Transfer Miles programmes, SkyMiles members have more flexibility and additional opportunity to accumulate miles toward Award Travel,” said Jeff Robertson, managing director, SkyMiles programme.
“As Delta continues to grow internationally, we’re making technological strides that enable our global customers to fully enjoy the programme and meet their travel needs with ease 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” added Robertson.
