Flying Made Simple
We are simplifying the travel experience from booking to flying and giving you more control – especially when moments arise that are out of your control. By removing change fees and making it easier to manage your changes on delta.com or in the Fly Delta app through My Trips, we are giving you peace of mind to fly when you are ready.
We understand that your plans may change. Enjoy more peace of mind with no change fees when you purchase a Main Cabin ticket or higher on flights originating from North America. For tickets where travel begins outside of North America, we continue to offer waived change and cancellation fees. With no change fees, you have the flexibility to change the date, time or location of your trip prior to departure. When changing your ticket, sometimes your new flight may cost more than your original flight. If this happens you would need to pay the difference in price to change your ticket.
As a reminder, Basic Economy tickets cannot be changed. For added flexibility for Basic Economy customers, you can cancel the ticket for a charge, which is deducted from the value of your ticket; remaining value will be issued as an eCredit and can be used towards a future Delta ticket.*
By eliminating change fees on tickets Main Cabin or above, this means that you can book, change or cancel your travel plans for domestic and certain international travel with:
- No change fees on Delta tickets for travel within the U.S., Puerto Rico and USVI
- No change fees on Delta tickets for travel originating in North America to anywhere in the world (including flights operated by joint venture and codeshare partners)
- No change fees for travel between the Caribbean and the U.S. and Mexico
- Basic Economy fares are excluded
SkyMiles® Members can also enjoy greater flexibility and peace of mind when traveling on an Award Ticket with the ability to change their plans at any time.
The following policies apply for Award Tickets for travel originating in North America to anywhere in the world, excluding Basic Economy tickets:**
- Award Ticket redeposit and reissue fees have been eliminated
- Members may change or cancel Award Tickets before departure and changes and cancellations made within 72 hours of departure will not result in the loss of miles
It’s easy to make changes yourself in My Trips and the Fly Delta app in just a few simple steps - saving you time and helping you stay in control of your travel plans. If your travel plans have changed, be sure to make changes prior to your departure.
If you are looking to change your flight time yourself within 24 hours of your originally scheduled departure time, you can search for alternative flights and may be able to select a standby or confirmed option using our Same-Day Change feature within the Fly Delta app.
We are giving you even more flexibility to fly when you are ready. All tickets expiring in 2022 and all new tickets purchased in 2022 will be able to be rebooked through December 31, 2023 for travel now through 2024.
Rest assured that we are at work updating all tickets with their extended validity later this year. As we make this update, you can continue to book tickets for travel anytime in 2022 or 2023 with your existing eCredits. When you are ready to use your eCredit, visit delta.com/redeem or the Fly Delta app where you’ll be able to verify the existing value and apply the eCredit at the time of purchase.
For more information on how to locate or use your eCredit, visit our how-to-page.
