Triple miles available for Delta SkyMiles members flying GOL through Feb. 28

Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) SkyMiles members can now redeem their miles for flights on GOL, one of Brazil*s largest airlines. The expanded alliance provides Delta customers access to frequent flyer awards on more than 900 GOL flights to 64 Latin and Caribbean destinations, increasing customers* ability to reach fast-growing Latin markets.

Popular Brazilian frequent flyer destinations served directly by GOL, but not by Delta, include Porto Alegre, Belo Horizonte, Salvador, Recife and Fortaleza.

**Delta welcomes the opportunity to expand its cooperation with GOL by offering greater access to its extensive network from Brazil*s largest hubs in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia,** said Charlie Pappas, Delta*s managing director – Alliances. **GOL is an excellent airline with a young and modern fleet offering a wide range of services in the growing Brazilian market.**

To celebrate the new reciprocal frequent flyer agreement, GOL and Delta customers can earn triple miles for travel on the partner airline*s flights between Dec. 1, 2010 and Feb. 28, 2011. For example, a Delta SkyMiles member flying a GOL flight in Economy class* between Sao Paulo and Fortaleza, Brazil will earn 8,712 SkyMiles round-trip compared to the normal 2,904.

**Delta is one of the world*s leading airlines and we are pleased to provide our customers access to its global network,** said Marcelo Bento, director of Yield and Alliances for GOL. **Delta is a highly strategic partner for GOL*s growth around the world, and provides us a strong platform to build from in the New York market, throughout the United States and to Europe and Asia.**

Delta has invested heavily in Latin America in recent years, growing from a small Latin network a decade ago to serving more than 60 destinations across Latin America and the Caribbean today.

To Brazil, Delta currently offers 30 nonstop weekly flights from the United States. This includes service between Atlanta and Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia; between New York-JFK and Sao Paulo; and between Detroit and Sao Paulo.

Recent growth in the Latin America region includes:

Nonstop flights between Mexico City and Minneapolis-St. Paul and Memphis beginning in December 2010 and January 2011, respectively.

Nonstop service between Cancun, Mexico and Austin, Texas; Columbus, Ohio; Tampa, Fla.; and San Antonio, each beginning Feb. 19, 2011.

An announcement that Aerolineas Argentinas, the flag carrier of Argentina, will become the second Latin American member of Delta*s SkyTeam global airline alliance, benefiting Delta customers with increased access to and from South America and complementing existing SkyTeam member Aeromexico.

Delta and GOL announced earlier this year that members of their respective frequent flyer programs – SkyMiles and SMILES – could earn miles on all flights operated by either carrier and now they can redeem benefits through both programs. The airlines also plan to implement codesharing services beyond their hubs in Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia and Sao Paulo early next year.
