ATLANTA, Feb. 28, 2007 – Delta Air Lines is offering SkyMiles members up to 45,000 bonus miles for international travel between New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport and London’s Gatwick Airport, and up to 10,000 bonus miles for domestic travel between Chicago-Midway and New York, Atlanta or Boston. 

SkyMiles members who purchase and fly round-trip in Delta's BusinessElite® cabin from New York-JFK to London Gatwick between March 1 and May 31, 2007, will earn 45,000 bonus miles – good for a domestic First Class Award ticket.  Customers who purchase a full-fare Economy ticket will receive 25,000 bonus miles, the equivalent of a domestic Economy Award ticket.  Plus, members who book JFK to London Gatwick flights, which expand to twice daily service beginning April 1, with an American Express Credit Card will earn an additional 2,500 bonus miles.  Participants must register online at delta.com/londonbonus between Feb. 15 and May 15, 2007.

In addition, Delta is celebrating its expanded service from Chicago’s Midway Airport by rewarding SkyMiles members with bonus miles when they fly nonstop between Chicago and Atlanta, Boston or New York.  Members who purchase and fly round trip from Feb. 15 through May 15, 2007, can earn up to 10,000 bonus miles (2,500 for each round-trip flight) when they register at delta.com/midway.

“As we continue to increase our routes across the Atlantic and to key business markets, we’re offering passengers even more mileage-earning opportunities,” said Jeff Robertson, managing director of the SkyMiles program.  “We hope SkyMiles members will take advantage of one of our most rewarding promotions ever – they can earn a First Class Award ticket with just one flight.”

Delta recently became the only global airline to serve more than 300 worldwide destinations.  The airline will continue to expand its global reach this summer with service to five transatlantic destinations: Bucharest, Dubai*, Prague*, Pisa/Florence and Vienna.  Delta also will become the leading carrier between the United States and Eastern Europe in 2007.

Delta Air Lines customers in New York and Chicago will find it easier to do business between the Big Apple and the Windy City with new nonstop service between New York’s LaGuardia Airport and Chicago’s Midway Airport, and additional service between New York’s JFK Airport and Chicago-O’Hare. The new service offers customers a Delta Shuttle-like experience – convenient, regularly timed nonstop flights between two of the nation’s largest business markets.

The award-winning Delta SkyMiles program offers members multiple mileage-earning opportunities when flying Delta, Delta Shuttle®, the Delta Connection® carriers, Delta AirElite® and other SkyTeam® airlines.  Additional mileage-building opportunities are offered through more than 100 partners such as the Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express, SkyMilesShopping.com, participating hotels, car rental companies, telecommunication services, restaurants, retailers and more.  Now in its 25th year, the SkyMiles program received a “Lifetime Achievement Award” at the 2006 Freddie Awards in recognition of its many contributions to the airline loyalty industry, and it was named “Best Frequent Flyer Program” for 2006 by Business Traveler magazine.
