ATLANTA - Atlanta-based Delta Airlines says that it is extending rebookings of flights affected by the coronavirus pandemic for up to two years.
The spread of COVID-19 has already causes a lot of travel headaches and cancelled plans, so Delta Airlines says that they want to make it as painless as possible to cancel flights, change plans, and rebook once the outbreak is over.
Tickets normally expire a year after purpose, but in an annoucement on Friday, Delta said that all coronavirus-impacted travel can be rebooked for up to two years for most customers.
"We’ve listened, and we know that you want the value of your ticket to be secure and redeemable for a longer period," the company said on its website.
The changes affect all customers who either have upcoming travel booked in April or May 2020 as of Friday or have existing eCredits or cancelled travel from flights in March, April, or May.
Any tickets purchased between March 1 and May 31 will be able to be changed without a fee for up to a year after the purchasing date.
"Rest assured your flight value is secure through May 2022 and will be ready to redeem online when you need it," the company said.
