Delta Air Lines has partnered with Landesbank Berlin and Mastercard to roll out the airline’s new European credit card.

Cardholders will receive two miles for every Euro spent on Delta purchases and one mile for every Euro spent on all other purchases with Delta’s SkyMiles frequent flyer programme.

These miles can then be redeemed for Award Travel with Delta and other airline partners, mileage upgrades and Delta Sky Club memberships. Cardholders can also use miles to pay for all or part of the fare.

Cardholders will also receive 10,000 bonus miles when spending €1,000 in the first three months of the card being issued.

In the first year, cardholders will be given the Silver Medallion status for free of charge. As a result, they can enjoy benefits such as Priority Check-In, baggage fee waivers, and Priority Boarding when flying with Delta.

Jennie Ho, Delta’s managing director of SkyMiles international partnerships, said: “Germany is one of the top European markets for Delta’s SkyMiles members so it was a natural choice to launch a credit card here.

“The card underlines our commitment to our German customers, who can now be even more rewarded when travelling through our network of airports across the country.”
