What started as a humble, little aerial crop dusting operation called Huff Daland Dusters in 1924 has now grown into one of the world’s largest global airlines, helping more than 160 million travelers get to the places they want to go to each year.

Delta and the Delta Connection® carriers offer service to 318 destinations in 59 countries on six continents. Delta is a founding member of the SkyTeam global alliance and, including its worldwide alliance partners, offers customers more than 13,000 daily flights to 587 destinations in 119 countries.

Earn miles

Flying Club members can earn on all Delta operated and marketed services including the flights operated by Delta regional services; Delta, Delta Shuttle, Delta Connection. This excludes any codeshare flights unless booked with a VS flight number.

Codeshare services that are marketed by Virgin Atlantic and operated by Delta Airlines also earn mileage.

If you're a member of one of our partner airlines' frequent flyer programmes, please note that you can only earn miles in one scheme for any particular flight.

Additional miles will not be earned for bookings that are subsequently upgraded to a higher class whereby an additional fare difference is paid.
