Winter storm forces Delta to drop change fees in MN, WI

The airline has issued a travel waiver for January 27th-28th.
Publish date:

Don't worry if you're flying Delta and you need to change flights because of the brutal winter weather bearing down on the region — you won't be charged for it. 

The Georgia-based airline, which has a major hub at MSP International in the Twin Cities, issued a travel waiver on Saturday "due to forecasted winter weather in the Upper Midwest":

Six Minnesota airports made the list of locations that could be affected by the weather: Bemidji, Brainerd, Duluth, Hibbing, Rochester, and MSP. 

The waiver is effective Sunday and Monday, and Delta says if you need to change flights, you can do so without having to pay the customary change fee.

There is a bit of a catch, though: depending on the flight you're changing to, there may be a difference in fare, which you'll be on the hook for. 

Another option is cancelling altogether and using "the value (of your ticket) towards a future flight."

Any Delta flyers needing to change their travel plans over the next day can do so right here. 

North Dakota and Wisconsin are also included in the waiver. 

A winter storm is forecast to move through Minnesota today, with snow totals ranging from 6-12 inches from Fargo through St. Cloud, the Twin Cities and in the southeastern part of the state as well.
