You can now fly around the world on Delta Airlines with your skis, surfboards, bicycles, golf clubs, scuba gear and other large-sized sporting equipment without paying any additional charge.
Delta Airlines: “Delta customers 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 $150 specialty sports bag fee previously charged for these items, effective for travel worldwide on tickets purchased beginning July 17, 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.”
Delta is the third major airline behind American and Alaskan Airlines to remove the high baggage fee for sporting equipment.
