Delta Airlines Flight Cancellation & Refund Policy

Delta Airlines Flight Cancellation & Refund Policy

With the worldwide presence in the aviation market, Delta Airlines has attained the zenith of success to become one of the best airlines in the USA. Like other major carriers, Delta Airlines flight cancellation and refund policy have been incorporated to maintain fairness in the deals with its customers. These policies bear the transparency to put off any discrepancies that may arise in the future. We, at FirstFly Travels, always go by these policies in compliance with the airline guidelines as the request for cancellation goes to Delta directly and refund is processed by it.

Types of Flight Cancellation and Refund on Delta Airlines:

Non-refundable Ticket:

If you have a Delta Airlines non-refundable ticket and you want to cancel it, a cancellation fee will be deducted from the original fare of the ticket and the remaining amount will be issued as a credit for future travel. You need to rebook your flight within one year from the original date of issue. However, as per the airline guidelines, the Basic Economy ticket is non-changeable and non-cancellable. Cancellation charge varies depending upon the type of ticket, and it starts from $200.

Refundable Ticket:

If you have a refundable ticket, no cancellation charge will be applied against the original fare as the ticket is considered to be a flexible one. The refund amount will be credited in your account in the original form of payment. The refundable ticket should be purchased with a credit card, cash or check to help process the refund procedure as per the airline guidelines. Some flight amenities, such as Sky Priority boarding, or a Wi-Fi pass can be requested for a full refund if remain unused due to voluntary flight cancellation.

24-hr Risk-Free Cancellation:

Delta Airlines facilitates risk-free cancellation for a ticket within 24 hours of the booking. Under this policy, you can cancel a ticket without any charge regardless of the ticket type, and you will be entitled to a full refund. The refund amount is processed within seven business days in the original form of payment and reflected on bank statement within 1-2 billing cycles. Apart from the risk-free cancellation within 24 hours of the booking, you can also change your itinerary without any charge; but, you have to pay the fare difference if any.

Award Ticket:

You can also cancel your award ticket which you have purchased using your Delta SkyMiles and cancellation should be initiated at least 72 hours before the flight departure time. There is a fixed cancellation charge of $150 regardless of fare type and destination. However, SkyMiles Platinum and Diamond Medallion member are exempted from the cancellation charge on award ticket cancellation. After cancellation, all the miles that have been used for flight booking are credited into your SkyMiles account.
