Limited Time: Delta Discount on Europe Award Flights

Elite Perks: Pay to Play

Overall, Delta’s SkyMiles program has established itself as one of the industry’s least generous loyalty schemes. To play, you’ll pay. But with this limited-time award sale, you can at least pay less.

Through April 21, SkyMiles members can book select business-class award trips to Europe for 105,000 or 115,000 miles roundtrip, plus taxes and fees. Eligible travel dates: June 3 through October 29.

Among the discounted city pairs listed on the promotion’s landing page:

  • Atlanta to Frankfurt or Rome for 105,000 miles
  • Boston to London or Paris for 105,000 miles
  • New York to Frankfurt, Manchester, Shannon, or Zurich for 105,000 miles
  • Salt Lake City to London or Paris for 115,000 miles

The list on Delta’s website is not comprehensive. Other discounted Europe destinations can be found by using the online-booking app and keying in your desired origin and destination cities.

Business-class roundtrips normally require at least 125,000 miles, and sometimes considerably more. So the discounts represented by the limited-time pricing can be substantial. And while the available travel dates may be off-season for business travel, they’d be a fine time for a Europe vacation.
