Delta SkyMiles has deepened their partnership with Canada’s WestJet, and you can now redeem Delta SkyMiles for award flights on WestJet. This opens up a whole range of options for travelers, especially those with links to Canada.
Booking WestJet Flights
The new option for redeeming flights is effective March 28, 2017, and you can redeem your SkyMiles for flights across the entire WestJet network. Tickets will be booked according to the following guidelines:
- Tickets will be WestJet economy class tickets
- You can upgrade to Premium Economy at check-in
The new deal does not affect mileage-earning with WestJet, and you will still be able to earn Delta SkyMiles on WestJet-operated flights, as you have been since 2015.
Additional redemption options are always welcome, especially when it comes to more non-stop flights. WestJet caters to over 100 destinations across North America and the Caribbean and has major hubs in Vancouver, Toronto, and Calgary. This opens up some excellent choices for nonstop flights from the US to Canada; some of the key nonstop routes now open to Delta SkyMiles Members include:
- Nashville to Toronto
- Edmonton to Las Vegas
- Calgary to San Francisco
- Phoenix to Calgary
- Montreal to Miami
Any development that increases choice is great news, and this improved partnership between Delta and WestJet is just the ticket. If you are a regular traveler between the US or Canada, you now have another great option to cash in your miles.
