In an announcement on Thursday, Delta will extend change-fee waivers for new flights purchased through August 31. Customers will also be able to change (or rebook) their flights if booked before April 17 for up to two years; particularly ones that are booked through the end of the year.
“When booking their travel, customers tell us they value more space and greater flexibility during a time of physical distancing and heightened uncertainty,” Dwight James, Delta’s senior vice president of pricing and revenue management, said in a prepared statement. “We want our customers to book and travel with the peace of mind in knowing their health and safety remains Delta’s top priority, and that we’ll continue evaluating our policies to maintain the high standard of care they expect.”
American Airlines also announced it would continue to waive change-fees for customers that booked flights through September 8.
Earlier this month, American Airlines CEO Doug Parker told the Wall Street Journal he’s ready passengers to fly again. “Let’s go fly, for God’s sake,” Parker said. “If it doesn’t work, we’ll pull it back.
