How To Find Low Airfare On Delta Airlines

By Lisa Steinway

Delta Airlines is one of the original commercial airlines in North America, and one of the largest. They fly to more than 340 destinations in sixty countries on six continents. No matter where you want to go, Delta Airlines can get you there. They have partnered with regional airlines to increase coverage, and with other international airlines. Delta Airlines have also kept up with the times. More than 3000 daily flights in the US are equipped with Wi-Fi, and they have apps for mobile devices that allow customers to book flights, check in, and view schedules and delays. The app also allows tracking your checked bag’s location.

Like many airlines, Delta Airlines has a loyalty program. Flyers earn points each time they fly, on Delta Airlines or Delta partners. These points can be redeemed for future travel. Delta Airlines also has lounges in some airports. These lounges offer free drinks and snacks, a quiet place to relax on long layovers, Wi-Fi, magazines and newspapers and even showers at some locations. Delta Airlines posts web-only specials on their website or you can sign up for an e-news that will let you now when seat sales are coming up.


The best place to find great fares on Delta Airlines is discount travel sites. These sites will show fares from all airlines, so you can compare. You will also be able to choose time of departure and arrival, so that you can find a schedule that works for you. Discount travel sites can combine airlines to offer the flights that you want. These sites also will offer non-stop and connecting flights; you might find that you are flying out on one airline, and connecting to another to get you to your destination on your schedule.

Be flexible when you are booking a flight. Take into consideration the days of the week. Most flights are less expensive mid-week. If you can travel on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, you will pay less than if you are flying out Friday night and back on Sunday evening or Monday morning. Time of year is also a factor to consider when booking a holiday. If you are going to a tourist destination, try going at an off-peak time, or shoulder season. Fares drop after the seasonal rush, and you will find that accommodations, restaurants, and attractions will be less hectic as well. If you are booking at holiday times or March Break, book as early as possible though. Low fares sell out quickly for those occasions, and you’re better to snap up that low fare early.

Many discount travel sites send out regular notices of fare changes when you have registered your desired location with them. This is a great way to monitor fares, and book when a fare is announced that fits your budget. As long as your dates are not fixed, you can get great deals this way. Discount travel sites depend on your repeat business, so get to know a couple, and learn which one you can count on.
