Delta Extends Medallion Status, SkyMiles Benefits and Expands Travel Waiver Amid COVID-19

Delta flyers now have the flexibility to change their flights for up to two years without paying a change fee. Tickets normally expire after one year, but Delta announced it is extending its policy for travel through May 31, 2022. 

The two-year window applies to customers who were due to fly in April or May and booked by April 3, as well as those who had flights canceled or have eCredits for flights during that time.

Delta is also making sure that members are able to preserve their statuses and benefits until after the crisis has passed. The following adjustments will be applied by Delta automatically over the coming weeks, with no action needed from customers:

Medallion Members:

—All 2020 Medallion Statuses will be automatically extended through the 2021 Medallion Year.

—All Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) from 2020 are being rolled over to 2021 to qualify for 2022 Medallion Status.

Delta Sky Club:

Individual and Executive memberships with currently set to expire March 1, 2020, or later are entitled to six additional months of Delta Sky Club access beyond their expiration date.
