This isn’t the first unique partnership between another company and Delta. In 2016, Delta launched a partnership with Airbnb, offering SkyMiles members the ability to earn miles as a host or a guest in homes around the world.

So, why is Delta doing this?
“We want Delta customers to choose the brands that they love throughout their journey, and be rewarded for it because they are SkyMiles members. That’s why we’re excited we’ve found a good fit with Lyft,” said Sandeep Dube, Delta’s vice president of customer engagement and loyalty.
How does it work?
Members simply link their SkyMiles and Lyft account, and then request a ride. Customers who are not already enrolled in the SkyMiles program can sign up for free through the partner page or delta.com/enroll.
What are the benefits?
Members earn one mile per every dollar spent on all rides, with unlimited mileage earning. SkyMiles members can use their miles, which never expire, to travel to over 1,000 global destinations. Award tickets start at just 10,000 miles, plus taxes and fees, for one-way awards.
