Preferred Seating

Corporate travelers now also have the ability to self-select the complimentary Preferred Seating option.

Travelers should ensure that their SkyMiles number is located in their CTP Travel Profile in the U-M Travel Portal to make certain they receive this benefit.

Delta Edge Points

Access to Delta Edge Points. Under the university’s Delta contract, the university is provided an allotment of points which CTP is able to apply toward ticket changes.

Corporate Name Change Program

Delta’s Corporate Name Change Program provides units with more flexibility in applying the value of unused tickets towards a new booking allowing better utilization of the travel budget.

Delta’s Corporate Name Change Program provides:

  • Reduced Name Change fee of $100.00 (from $150.00)
  • Unlimited usage—no longer limited to the availability of Delta Edge points to request a name change

Name Changes are available through CTP when the original ticket was booked in U-M’s Travel Booking Tool or directly with a CTP agent
