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 or in the Fly Delta app through My Trips, we are giving you peace of mind to fly when you are ready.

Travel with Flexibility 

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 all Delta tickets where travel begins outside of North America, we continue to offer waived change fees. As a reminder, Basic Economy tickets cannot be changed or canceled unless the ticket falls within a Basic Economy waiver

By eliminating change fees, this means that you can book, change or cancel your travel plans for domestic and certain international travel at no charge:   

  • 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 now 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 changes are effective immediately 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. No longer will changes and cancellations made within 72 hours of departure result in the loss of miles*

*For tickets purchased after August 9, 2020.

Manage Your Travel Changes with Ease

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.

Follow our step-by-step guide to learn more about making changes.

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.  

Giving You More Flexibility to Use eCredits

We are giving you even more flexibility to fly when you are ready. All tickets expiring in 2021 and all new tickets purchased in 2021 have been extended and will expire on December 31, 2022.

When you are ready to use your eCredit, visit or the Fly Delta app where you’ll be able to verify the existing value/expiration date information and apply the eCredit at the time of purchase.
