Delta Air Lines and Seaborne Airlines have expanded their codeshare agreement to allow people to purchase a single ticket on select flights between the United States and Caribbean, as well as to allow Delta SkyMiles members to earn miles on Seaborne flights booked through Delta.
Through Delta, passengers can now book travel with connections to Seaborne-operated flights between San Juan, Puerto Rico and St. Croix; St. Thomas and St. Croix; San Juan and Anguilla; and San Juan and Beef Island, British Virgin Islands.
“The Delta-Seaborne partnership will give our customers more options when travelling to or from the Caribbean, expanding our reach throughout the region and increasing the number of destinations we serve,” stated Nicolas Ferri, Delta’s VP Latin America and the Caribbean. “This agreement also provides the benefits of coordinated customer service, such as a single ticket and bag check-in process. We look forward to continuing to grow our partnership and providing our customers with even more convenience and connectivity in the future.”
Delta is also planning future expansions to the agreement to include Delta-coded Seaborne Airlines-operated routes from San Juan, Puerto Rico to Dominica (DOM); Nevis, Saint Kitts and Nevis (NEV); and La Romana in the Dominican Republic (LRM).
It will also provide increased frequencies on more days of the week thanks to the Delta-Seaborne connections being offered in addition to Delta’s direct flights, to St. Kitts, Saint Kitts and Nevis (SKB); Antigua (ANU); and St. Croix (STX).
The agreement complements Delta’s current service to the Caribbean, extending its flight numbers and fares to 10 Seaborne markets, with up to 40 daily round-trip flights.
The codeshare flights will connect to and from San Juan (SJU), which Delta serves with four daily flights from Atlanta and five daily flights from New York-JFK during the peak season, with seasonal Detroit and Minneapolis/St. Paul to San Juan routes as well.
