Delta and American Express add 1.1m new card members in 2019

Delta Airlines has announced that, in partnership with American Express, it added more than 1.1 million new Delta Skymiles American Express card members in 2019, the company said.

This marks the third year in a row of adding more than 1 million new card members.

In 2019, the partners announced an 11-year renewal and a complete relaunch of the cards — starting Jan. 30, consumers can enjoy more ways to earn miles and new travel benefits. The partnership with American Express is expected to contribute approximately USD 4 billion in value to Delta in 2019, and nearly USD 7 billion annually by 2023.

In 2019, Delta also added a record number of new SkyMiles Members for one year — with the number of new Members increasing at double the rate of just three years ago. Over the past several years, Delta has been investing in the award-winning SkyMiles program and it´s paying off — satisfaction with the program has reached record levels.
