With new airfare category, Delta Air Lines aims to take on Spirit Airlines

Delta Air Lines is aiming to provide cheap tickets to its customers and give Spirit Airlines some tough times.

The airline has rolled out a new airfare category called ‘basic Economy’ and is trying to compete with Spirit Airlines loosening the strong grip it has on budget travelers.

The new airfare category was rolled out two months ago and is being currently tested on flights from Detroit to Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers and Tampa.

Delta Air Lines’ Basic Economy airfare is on somewhat a similar pattern as that of Spirit Airlines’ $9 Fare Club. According to the airline, the basic economy fare doesn’t allow any changes to the itinerary, even for a change fee. The fare also doesn’t allow passengers to get seat assignments in advance. The seats are instead auto-assigned at check-in. The passengers will, therefore, won’t have to spend much on their air tickets and will be able to book cheap flights by taking the advantage of Basic Economy airfare.
After seeing the introduction of the basic economy airfare gaining success, Delta Air Lines is likely to expand it to other markets as well.
