SkyMiles Program Changes Announced   

Delta continues to innovate our SkyMiles Program based on customer feedback to remain the industry’s premier loyalty program.

Beginning January 1, 2024, we are changing the way SkyMiles Members qualify for Medallion Status to preserve the exclusivity and experience our most loyal customers and travelers look forward to and deserve. As part of these changes, select Delta SkyMiles American Express Card Members will also see changes to their Delta Sky Club Access.

These changes will simplify how to earn Status, offer new and enhanced ways to earn Status and preserve the premium experience for our SkyMiles and Medallion Members.

Simpler Status Tracking: Beginning January 1, 2024, all SkyMiles Members will earn toward Status through only MQDs. SkyMiles Members will no longer earn Medallion Qualifying Miles (MQMs) or Medallion Qualifying Segments (MQSs). Customers won’t lose any Rollover MQMs accrued — starting early 2024, Members can choose to convert Rollover MQMs to MQDs or miles (or a combination of both).

More ways to earn Status: With these changes to the SkyMiles Program, Members can now earn Status through purchases on eligible Delta SkyMiles American Express Cards, car rentals and stays booked on, and Delta Vacations, in addition to Delta and partner flights. Earn by spending how and when you want, with Delta and our partners.

We’re committed to a premium Member experience, including in our Clubs. Delta SkyMiles Reserve and Reserve Business American Express Card Members will receive 10 Club visits per Medallion Year starting Feb. 1, 2025. Members can earn unlimited Access after spending $75K on their eligible Card in a calendar year and will have unlimited Club Access for the remainder of the current Medallion Year and the following Medallion Year. Tracking begins Jan. 1, 2024, for the 2025 Medallion Year. Effective January 1, 2024, eligible Card Members with Basic Economy (E) fare tickets (or similar “Light” or “basic” tickets issued by a Delta partner) will not have access to the Delta Sky Club. 

Beginning Jan. 1, 2024, the Delta SkyMiles Platinum and Platinum Business American Express Cards will no longer provide Club Access. There will be no changes to how SkyMiles Members earn and redeem miles, the changes only affect the way they qualify for Medallion Status.

Delta remains committed to our agency partners and have heard feedback for a simplified earning structure for our SkyMiles Program. These changes will allow us to continue to reward top travelers and ensure the best possible experience on both business and leisure trips. Delta Business continues to be committed to supporting travel policies and maximizing value for our mutual customers.
