Now Lyft passengers will have the opportunity to get Delta SkyMiles every time they request a ride.
Delta’s vice president Sandeep Dube released a statement about the decision.
“We’re thinking about our customers’ whole travel experience and it’s important that Delta customers are taken care of not just in the air, but on the ground. We want Delta customers to choose the brands that they love throughout their journey, and be rewarded for it because they are SkyMiles members. That’s why we’re excited we’ve found a good fit with Lyft.”
Signing up for the rewards program is free and each dollar spent will earn one point to be used on Delta flights.
Lyft’s chief business officer David Baga released a statement about the partnership as well.
“We are proud to announce Delta as our newest strategic partner, an iconic brand in the transportation landscape. In working with the Delta team we discovered that our two companies share similar values, emphasizing customer focus and having employee-centric cultures. This first-of-its-kind partnership rewards our customers while providing them with a seamless end to end travel experience.”
