In a site first, we are releasing one of the biggest airline discount packages that we have come across in a long time. Delta Airlines has a reputation for caring about their customers, and they have now extended this to the military personnel that use their services.
But if you think that this is just for cheaper tickets, think again. Delta goes above and beyond in their respect for those who serve this country. And we are going to tell you about it all.
If you’ve enlisted to serve, you are eligible for numerous discounts and benefits for your travel needs. Let’s highlight the best offers right here.
First up, and to answer your biggest question, yes, you will get cheaper flights through Delta’s Military Flights offer. In fact, Delta makes it as easy as possible to find these flights, and you will not see these offers made available to civilians. They have a dedicated flight reservation hotline specifically to serve you.
Hours: Monday-Friday, 8:30-17:30, ET
Call up to discuss your flight arrangements because it doesn’t matter if it’s a military orders departure or you’re travelling with your family. Delta is there to serve you.
This is certainly a unique offer that we have yet to see matched by anyone else in the industry.
If you have an immediate family member that has been injured in the line of duty, Delta makes it easier to get connected with each them. Even if you’re not military yourself, you can book a steeply discounted rate on the Delta Medical Emergency policy.
Upon providing the name and phone number of the military hospital providing care, you can book the next flight out at much cheaper rates to be with the one you love in their time of need. This policy extends to spouses, partners, parents, children, grandparents, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, and in-laws as well.
Getting stationed overseas but don’t want to leave your dog at home? No problem.
Delta has created the Military Pet Travel policy specifically for Tucker, Rex, Mittens, and Chairman Meow. You can fly your pet as checked baggage with you when you travel at cheaply discounted prices. Simply inform the Military Travel hotline staff that you wish to fly with your pet, and they can walk you through the procedure. Active transfer orders will be required to prove that you are flying to a new posting and relocating for military purposes.
If you thought that was more than fair, you have not seen the end of it yet. Delta does more than give lip service to the wonderful folk that serve in the military. They truly do go above and beyond in their thanks for service.
Military personnel and family also receive up to $300 off Delta Vacations, a package that deserves its own post to fully expand on the offers available. You get excellent baggage benefits whether flying on orders or on personal travel time.
Delta’s offers make them the primary choice for any military personnel that intimately knows the pain and trouble that travel causes. Choose Delta for your next flight, and the savings will account for themselves.
