The Delta SkyMiles flash sales just keep coming. And we keep finding them.
Delta hasn’t advertised this sale, but we unearthed an amazing deal to get from New York City (JFK) down to Bogotá (BOG) for just 12,000 SkyMiles roundtrip all the way through early 2022. That’s less than most basic economy awards within the U.S! Plus, you can give yourself some extra legroom by upgrading to Delta Comfort Plus for just 14,000 SkyMiles total – just another 2,000 SkyMiles more.
Want award alerts like this one, plus cheap domestic and international cash fares? Thrifty Traveler Premium members get it all – try it for just $5.99 a month!
Want to splurge for a lie-flat bed? We found flights in Delta One for just 24,000 SkyMiles roundtrip when we first sent this alert to Thrifty Traveler Premium members, though award rates have since inched up to around 30,000 SkyMiles total. That’s still a bargain, or you could mix-and-match to fly Delta One down to Colombia, then Comfort Plus on the return for just 22,000 SkyMiles.
Delta is currently flying its Boeing 767-300s on this route, which has its older business class seats – not the flashy Delta One suites. Still, it’s a nice lie-flat ride down to Colombia with upgraded meals and lounge access before your flight.
Don’t live in New York City? Search for award rates from your home airport, but it’s worth considering a positioning flight to hop on this dirt-cheap SkyMiles flash sale.
Availability to fly down to Colombia at these ultra-low rates in economy and Comfort Plus is wide-open through the spring, summer, fall, and into winter 2022. Unfortunately, you’ll have to be pickier to find Delta One seats at the lowest rates.
But seriously, look how easy it is to snag a Comfort Plus seat down to Colombia this fall. Aside from a few dry spots around Thanksgiving and Christmas, you can pick from almost any day through January 2022.
International travel may still be uncertain, but Colombia already allows Americans to visit so long as they provide a negative COVID-19 test taken within 96 hours of departure. Visitors also have to fill out Colombia’s Check-Mig immigration form and follow other protocols upon arrival. And as of today, you’ll still need a negative COVID-19 test before flying back to the U.S.
Most importantly, Colombia is an incredible country. Explore the mountaintop town of Bogotá, then head out for Medellín, Cartagena, and beyond. Read our guide to exploring Colombia!

These Delta SkyMiles flash sales just keep getting better.
From 10,000-mile trips to Hawaii or even Puerto Rico, it doesn’t get any cheaper than this. Paying just 12,000 SkyMiles to fly down to Colombia – or 14,000 in Comfort Plus – is unbeatable. Other airlines charge double that or more.
