Checked sporting equipment with Delta Air Lines

24 Jul 2019

Delta passengers traveling with surfboards, bicycles, golf clubs, scuba gear and other large-sized sporting equipment will now be allowed to check them as part of their standard baggage allowance. 

The airline is eliminating the specialty sports bag fee previously charged for these items, effective for travel worldwide on tickets purchased from 17 July 2019. Customers will instead pay a first, second or third checked bag fee according to the fare rules associated with their booking and/or SkyMiles Medallion status.

Complete checked baggage fee detail, including the new sporting equipment fees, can be found at Delta.com. Due to space limitations, acceptance and charges may vary for itineraries on a Delta Connection carrier.
