Benefits & Travel Privileges

As an industry leader, Delta is proud to offer to all of our employees an appealing compensation package including competitive pay, excellent benefits and worldwide travel privileges.

Worldwide Travel Privileges

Delta travel privileges are the envy of the industry. You will be provided with full program guidelines upon hire, but basically, after completing 30 days of service with the company, you can use your travel privileges to travel anywhere Delta flies.

Through this exciting perk, our employees have been able to explore amazing destinations all around the world. You can see video highlights of some of our crew members' favorite places by clicking here.

Family members are also eligible for free and reduced rate travel, including:
  • Spouse
  • Same-sex domestic partner/same-sex spouse (imputed income applies)
  • Minor dependent children (under 19 or under 23 if full-time student)
  • Parents
Individuals eligible for reduced-rate travel are your:
  • Nondependent children
  • Travel companion
  • Family & Friends guest

You and your eligible pass riders will travel standby, on a space available basis, which means you receive seats only if space is available after all revenue passengers have been boarded. For you and your eligible family members, the flight is free, but when flying to international destinations, there may be government or airport fees. Nevertheless, it is still a great deal.
