Delta is in the holiday spirit, as the airline is back with another one of its fantastic SkyMiles flash sales. This time, use your SkyMiles to get to Brussels (BRU) or London (LHR) starting at just 32,000 SkyMiles round-trip!
This is another one of Delta’s advertised SkyMiles flash sales. But as usual, we found its far larger than advertised. These great rates are available nationwide from almost every airport with Delta service, including tiny airports like Minot (MOT), Wichita (ICT), and more. Book by Dec. 26 to get these rates.
Flights are available all the way through November, but the cheapest rates are for travel in January and February. And you can’t ignore these prices. At 32,000 to 36,000 SkyMiles, you can fly to Europe and back for the same price you’ll often pay for a short domestic trip in the U.S.
Not interested in visiting Brussels or London? Fly into other European cities like Amsterdam (AMS), Barcelona (BCN), Lisbon (LIS), Milan (MXP), or Rome (FCO) for just a tad more. Search your departure city and where you’d like to head in Europe, and see what’s available!
Thrifty Tip #1: Short on SkyMiles? Cash fares to Brussels are available almost nationwide for $450 to $595.
Thrifty Tip #2: Want to boost your SkyMiles balance for the next deal and get lounge access worldwide? Earn up to 100,000 points with American Express (transferable to Delta) after spending $5,000 in three months with the American Express Platinum card.
These flash sales are among the best ways to use your SkyMiles. Other airlines generally charge at least 30,000 miles for a one-way ticket to Europe! Read up on Delta’s SkyMiles Flash sales.

It can be hard to snag a two-hour flight within the U.S. for 32,000 SkyMiles round-trip. A flight to Europe generally costs at least 60,000 SkyMiles – and often far more.
So this deal is fantastic if you want to visit Brussels or London. Beware that flights in and out of LHR will be hit with close to $200 in fees – an unavoidable evil of London’s notoriously pricey Heathrow airport. Fees on flights to Brussels are much more reasonable, at about $60 or less.
We’re starting to sound like a broken record, but these SkyMiles flash sales are incredible.
These sales are one of the main reasons why we value SkyMiles more than most. Delta can be tough to grasp because it doesn’t have an award chart, and that means they often charge an arm and a leg for an award flight. But that freedom also comes with tremendous upside. So take advantage and get to Europe for 32,000 SkyMiles round trip!
