Delta Air Lines has announced a fall travel sale that offers some dramatic airfare reductions from cities nationwide, including Minneapolis/St. Paul. With one-way fares as low a $49 to Milwaukee, if you are considering a fall getaway there is bound to be a city on sale that will catch your interest. The even better news about this sale is that the other major U.S. carriers are expected to follow suit, making travel this fall an affordable proposition for more and more people.
The current Delta sale requires a 21-day advance purchase and you must make your reservations no later than July 29. The travel time period for these new lower fares is August 17 through November 17, 2010. Make your booking and pay with the American Express SkyMiles credit card and you’ll earn double miles for your trip based on the dollar amount of the booking. There are no blackout dates for domestic travel, but a Saturday night stay and a maximum time away of 30 days are other requirements.
Delta does require a round-trip purchase unlike some of the low-cost carriers like Southwest, AirTran, Frontier and Sun Country, but with these prices a round-trip is probably what you’re looking for anyway. Other cities reduced from MSP based on a round-trip include: Chicago O’Hare as low as $118; Denver from $198; Washington National $198; New York-LaGuardia starting at $238; San Diego from just $279 and Amsterdam, Holland as low as $738 round-trip.
Sale airfares are not offered on every flight on every day of the week, so plan early to find the best prices. International taxes, passenger facility charges, security fees and segment charges are additional.
The Delta sale offers special airfares from cities nationwide, so if your origination point isn’t the Twin Cities, check their website for prices from your home town. Delta offers more than 450 daily flights from Minneapolis/St. Paul, including non-stop service to more than 130 destinations.
