Delta Is Waiving Fees For Travelers Canceling Flights To The Dominican Republic

Business Insider reports Delta Airlines is now allowing travelers to cancel their flights to the Dominican Republic without a penalty charge.

In a statement online, the airline announced the fee waiver, explaining that changes to flights to Punta Cana would not be subjected to penalty fees.

It cited "recent events" as the reason for its decision.

Several US tourists have died while staying at all-inclusive resorts in the Dominican Republic within the past year.

American Airlines, JetBlue, and Sun County have also said they would waive fees on a case-by-case basis.
