Delta's Agency Discount (AD) Program - For Travel Agents Outside of the US and Canada - For Travel Originating Outside of the US and Canada   

Valid for all qualified IATA international travel agents located outside of the 50 United States and Canada. Travel agencies may issue an unlimited number of AD tickets only to qualified individuals. See below for program rules and ticketing information:

Please note: Until further notice, for Point of Sale Asia, please send your fare quote request for reservations that do not auto-price for the ADI75 program, for any GDS, to AD.request@delta.com. Delta will provide a fare quote and a waiver code in the agency PNR which will allow the agency to issue a ticket using the ADI75 program.

Delta and the GDSs are aware of the auto-price issue and are working on a resolution.

For additional assistance, please contact Global Sales Support or Delta Reservations.
