Delta extends change fee waiver for flights booked through to June 2020


Delta has extended several of its amended travel policies further into the summer, as global travel restrictions continue to batter the aviation industry.

Customers with cancelled travel booked up to the end of June 2020, can now re-book without change fees to fly up until May 31, 2022.

The above applies to customers who have:

* Upcoming travel already booked in April, May or June 2020, as of April 14, 2020
* Existing eCredits or cancelled travel from flights in March, April, May or June 2020
The carrier also said that it has capped fares in all cabins for travel throughout Canada and the US until May 31, although exact details of this were not given.

Delta recently announced a number of social distancing measures for those travelling before May 31, including blocking the middle seat on all flights in Main Cabin, Delta Comfort + and Delta Premium Select cabins.

These moves will now also be extended until the end of June.
Finally the airline is offering free round-trip Delta flights to states including Georgia, Louisiana, Michigan and New York, for eligible medical volunteers. This programme is also valid for travel through to the end of June, and more details can be found here.

Earlier this month Delta extended tier statuses for members of its Sky Miles frequent flyer programme, with all SkyMiles Medallion members set to enjoy the same loyalty benefits throughout 2021 as they currently have in 2020.
