Redeem Miles for Westjet with Delta Skymiles

Delta Skymiles are often referred to as skypesos because they were not valuable compared to Alaska, United, or American before they all devalued (to some extent).

Today, Delta has unveiled a new airline you can redeem on – Westjet.

For Canadians, Membership Rewards are transferrable to Delta – however only at a 1:0.75 ratio.

American Express currently has four charge cards earning Membership Rewards with improved bonuses – which are all historical highs.

Awards book into fare class (T), on economy only – Westjet Plus currently isn’t a redemption option.

So far, they have the following prices one-way. Keep in mind that you can also add Delta along with Westjet on the same award ticket.

  • Domestic Canada/US – 12,500 Miles
  • Mexico/Caribbean – 17,500 Miles
  • Hawaii – 22,500 Miles
  • Europe – 30,000 Miles

I haven’t flown too much on Westjet, but it’s a nice additional option to have when redeeming your miles – for families who want to go to Disneyland on the direct YVR-SNA flight, or even if there’s no space on an Aeroplan direct flight.

Availability, unfortunately, doesn’t looks the best. With a couple of routes I’ve checked, there’s space perhaps a few days out of the month.

However, what excites me even more is that reciprocal redemptions on Delta should be coming soon on Westjet Rewards. It’s always good to have additional redemption options on Canadian domestic flights as well.
