Delta Air Lines Extends Travel and Rebooking Window to 2022by Daine Taylor /
Delta Air Lines announced a policy change that extends the expiration date of tickets already purchased by two years, to give customers added flexibility amid the travel disruptions caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.
As travelers and their advisors cancel flights due to the COVID-19 pandemic, airlines have issued travel waivers to be redeemed for future travel.
Delta has taken the unprecedented step of extending that for a longer period, until May 31, 2022. Tickets normally expire one year after purchase.
This updated policy applies to customers who already have upcoming travel plans booked in April or May 2020 (as of April 3, 2020), and those who have existing eCredits or canceled travel from flights in March, April or May 2020. All applicable eCredits will be automatically extended to May 2022.
Delta is also allowing new tickets purchased between March 1 and May 31, to be changed without a change fee for up to a year from the date of purchase.
