Delta Expands Basic Economy Across Atlantic, Partners Introduce Similar Fare Product

Published on : Thursday, December 7, 2017

deltalogo_11431228Delta Air Lines’ Basic Economy fare is now available on more than 50 percent of Delta’s flights between North America and Europe. Today’s Basic Economy fare expansion to trans-Atlantic flights operating April 10, 2018, and beyond, comes as partners Air France-KLM and Alitalia each introduce a similar basic fare product across the Atlantic on the same date.



Delta first introduced Basic Economy fares in 2012 for price-conscious customers looking for great seat value who don’t mind where they sit. Customers who purchase a Basic Economy fare enjoy the same flight experience as Main Cabin customers, including Delta’s world-class service, a Main Cabin seat, complimentary snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, Wi-Fi for purchase and free access to hours of movies, shows and more on Delta studio, but with restrictions related to the ticket transaction. Complimentary alcoholic beverages are also available in Main Cabin on international flights while meals are available on select long-haul and international flights.



As part of its Basic Economy expansion, Delta is introducing a Basic Economy first checked bag fee for trans-Atlantic routes only. The fee will be standard for Air France-KLM and Alitalia, along with no seat assignments and tickets not being changeable.



“Expanding Basic Economy is one more way Delta is providing customers more choice and control in their travel,” said Tim Mapes, Senior Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer. “This is a great solution for price-conscious customers flying across the Atlantic who still want the high-quality cabin experience Delta has to offer.”



Delta is aligning its trans-Atlantic Basic Economy product closely with its domestic Basic Economy product while remaining competitive among all carriers in the international market. There are no changes to Delta’s domestic Basic Economy fare policy.
