Delta Air Lines

In April 2010, Delta Air Lines became the premier travel partner of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Delta’s commitment to families is reflected in the amazing support being provided to St. Jude patient family travel.

As a direct and highly-beneficial tool to aid in patient and family travel, St. Jude is one of the charities represented on their SkyWish® program. This program allows sky member miles to be donated to St. Jude for patients and families traveling to and from St. Jude. In addition to travel discounts, Delta shares the St. Jude message with thousands of passengers by featuring St. Jude ads in Sky Magazine®and by featuring a 60-second St. Jude video on all domestic and international flights equipped with in-flight entertainment during the month of December.

In 2011, Delta invited their SkyMiles® members to join forces and ask them to donate $50 to St. Jude through the SkyWish® program and receive 1,000 SkyMiles® in exchange for the donation.

Delta’s general discounts for patient family travel, monetary credit for professional travel and donations of miles through the SkyWish® program saves the hospital approximately $1 million annually. This year, Delta will be partnering with St. Jude as a corporate sponsor for events such as the AutoZone Golf Classic, St. Jude Give thanks. Walk.TM and the 2014 FedEx St. Jude Classic.
