Deltas Fare Basis Codestruktur *  

Delta's Fare Basis Code (FBC) structure has expanded to more markets and branded products, including our newest product Delta Premium Select.

Using Delta's FBC structure, corporate and agency partners may apply ticket designators to more branded products. Agency and Corporate incentives can now be easily applied to these branded products. Corporate Priority and recognition benefits will also apply.   

Delta's Fare Basis Code structure now applies to:

  • Most Domestic (U.S. and Canada) First Class F-Upsell fares. 
  • Delta One® and Business fares in Latin, Pacific and Europe/Middle East/Africa (EMEA) markets, and Delta One fares available on select cross-country flights, including between New York - JFK and Los Angeles (LAX) or San Francisco (SFO), between Washington Reagan (DCA) and Los Angeles (LAX), and between Boston (BOS) and San Francisco (SFO).
  • Delta Premium Select fares, now available on select international routes.
  • Delta Comfort+ as a fare productPlease note: In select markets, Delta Comfort+ as a fare uses a static ticket designator WCOM or SCOM. 
  • Basic Economy fares in all markets where Basic Economy fares are offered.

Please note: Markets using Delta’s Fare Basis Code Structure are subject to change without notice.

Identifying Branded Fares with New Fare Basis Code (FBC) Structure

In almost all markets, Delta will use the second from the last character in the fare basis code regardless of the number of characters in the code to identify the branded product.   

All Fare Basis Codes are limited to no more than 8 characters. Domestic** markets typically use all 8 characters, while international markets may use less than 8 characters.
