dedicated webpage on the Delta Airlines Name Change Policy. This comprehensive
resource is designed to assist passengers in efficiently and accurately adjusting names on
confirmed reservations. The policy delineates permissible modifications, associated fees,
and required documentation, whether prompted by legal documentation updates, marriage,

with confidence and minimal disruption to their travel plans.
Delta Airlines Allowed Name Changes
Delta Airlines acknowledges that adjustments to trip plans may be necessary, and they allow
name changes within certain restrictions. The following are some acceptable reasons for
name changes and related restrictions:
Valid Reasons for Name Changes
Minor Misspellings or Name Reversals: Accidentally spelling or order mistakes in names
can be rectified, such as "Jon" to "John" or "Smith, Jane" to "Jane Smith."
Legal Name Changes: Changes resulting from marriage, divorce, or court rulings are
allowed, maintaining conformity with current legal documents.
Gender Marker Updates: Delta respects travelers' identities and allows for gender identity
adjustments.
Other Valid Reasons: Name changes resulting from adoption, religious conversion, or other
legally recognized reasons are also taken into account.
Restrictions and Limitations
International Flights: On overseas trips, name changes may be subject to extra rules or
partner airline policies.
Basic Economy Fares: On Basic Economy flights, which have tighter modification and
refund restrictions, name changes are often not permitted.
Third-Party Bookings: Name changes on tickets purchased through third-party agencies
sometimes necessitate collaboration with the booking agent.
Documentation Requirements for the name change
Delta Airlines demands appropriate paperwork to verify customer identification and the
authenticity of the desired change to ensure a seamless name change procedure. Here is a
list of often required documents:
Essential Documents:
Government-issued photo ID: A passport or driver's license is typically required to confirm
the passenger's identity.
Proof of Name Change: Additional paperwork may be required depending on the cause for
the change:
Marriage Certificate: For name changes brought about by marriage.
Court Order: For name changes ordered by a court, such as divorce or legal name change
Adoption Papers: For adoption-related name changes
Additional Considerations:
International Flights: For international travel, a valid passport matching the new name is
crucial.
Minors: Name changes for minors may require a parent or guardian's consent and
additional documentation, such as birth certificates.
Specific Requirements: Delta may request additional documents depending on the
circumstances.
Fees and Charges for Delta Name Changes
Modifying your travel plans can sometimes incur additional costs, and Delta Airlines applies
specific fees to name changes depending on the circumstances. Here's a breakdown of
applicable charges:
Standard Name Change Fee
This is the standard price for most name changes performed before departure. The precise
price depends on your flight's ticket class and origin/destination.
Changes made closer to the trip date (usually within 72 hours) may incur a higher cost.
Fees for Name Changes within 24 Hours of Departure
Last-minute name changes within 24 hours of departure often incur a significantly higher fee
compared to the standard charge.
Fees for Name Changes Made at the Airport
Modifying your name at the airport typically involves the highest fee due to its last-minute
nature. Consider using online or phone options for a potentially lower cost.
