Discounted Air Travel

Atlanta is on Eastern Standard Time. Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport (ATL) is located about twelve miles south of the Atlanta metropolitan area and is served by all major airlines.

The official airline for the meetings is Delta, which uses Atlanta as its major hub. Given the volatility in airfares because of "fare wars", we cannot guarantee that these will be the lowest fares when you make your arrangements. However, we strongly urge participants to make use of this special deal if at all possible, as the AMS and MAA can earn complimentary tickets. These tickets are used to send meetings staff (not officers or other staff) to the Joint Mathematics Meetings, thereby keeping the costs of the meetings (and registration fees) down.

The following specially negotiated rates are available only for these meetings and exclusively to mathematicians and their families for the period December 30, 2004­January 11, 2005. Other restrictions/discounts may apply, and seats are limited.

Delta Air Lines is offering:

  • A 5% discount off Delta's published round trip fares within the continental United States excluding A, D, I, U and T classes of service
  • A 10% discount off Delta's domestic published unrestricted round trip coach fares (Y06/YR06) rates. No advance reservations or ticketing is required.
  • An additional 5% bonus discount if you purchase your ticket 30 days or more prior to your departure through Meeting Network Reservations or your travel agent; not available through online.

Booking Online provides the following advantages:

  • No service fees
  • Easy management of itinerary
  • 1000 SkyMiles bonus points for booking online (if booked and ticketed by 12/31/04)
  • Check-in Online - skip the lines at the airport.
