It’s now even easier to use your Chase points for great deals on Delta flights.

Korean Skypass, a transfer partner for Chase Ultimate Rewards points, now lets you book awards for SkyTeam partner airlines like Delta on its website, with no phone calls needed anymore, according to the Dan’s Deals blog.

That lets you take advantage of some good deals on Delta and SkyTeam partner flights like…

  • The U.S. to Hawaii or the Caribbean for 25,000 miles roundtrip on Delta (vs 45,000 miles if you used Delta miles)
  • The U.S. to Africa in Business Class for 120,000 miles roundtrip plus about $600 in fees on Air France

There are no fees to change or cancel awards, though once you transfer Chase points to Korean Skypass you can’t transfer them back to Chase.

To search for the SkyTeam awards at the special Korean SkyPass prices just login to a free account on the Skypass website, choose ‘Award Booking,’ then ‘SkyTeam Award,’ and search for flights.

Available for just 25,000 miles roundtrip (compared to 45,000 miles if you booked directly with Delta).

And here’s New York to Johannesburg in Business Class on Air France for 120,000 miles plus about $600 in fees, which aren’t bad considering it’s two overnight flights in Business Class on the way out.

Korean also offers 80,000 mile Business Class awards to Europe, but this is one place it’s not very competitive. You’ll be slapped with over $800 in surcharges on Delta flights to Europe, even though when you book Delta flights using Air France Flying Blue miles (another SkyTeam program that’s a transfer partner with Chase) you won’t pay any surcharges.
