(July 9, 2013) – Virgin Australia and Delta Air Lines recently announced that the carriers will expand their partnership. Customers of both airlines will now be able to fly from Australia to six different cities in Mexico on one ticket as part of the alliance’s continued commitment to strengthening its offering.

SkyMiles members will also be able to earn and redeem miles on these new codeshare routes and partner hotels in the region. Delta offers many ways to redeem frequent flyer miles, including airline tickets on Delta and partner airlines, mileage upgrades, car rentals, hotel stays and Delta Sky Club memberships, and is the only major airline with miles that
don’t expire.
