WAIVERS & FLEXIBILITY


 

MORE WAYS TO PROTECT YOUR PLANS

Delta is giving customers more time to plan and rebook a trip than any other U.S. airline with a travel credit extension that allows for unmatched flexibility. Tickets normally expire one year after purchase, but effective immediately, Delta is extending the validity of:  

  • All tickets expiring in 2021 to expire Dec. 31, 2022 

  • All tickets purchased in 2021 to expire Dec. 31, 2022 

For all Delta tickets where travel begins outside of North America, we continue to offer waived change fees. For tickets issued after April 30, 2020, except for Basic Economy fares, changes free of charge will be offered without the need for a waiver code but is determined directly by the fare rules. Please reference the individual fare rule for details related to continued flexibility. 

NEW! For upcoming Basic Economy travel through December 31, 2021, customers can now make changes to their upcoming flight without change fees through our temporary 2021 Basic Economy Changeability Waiver.
