The Atlanta-based carrier said it would directly refund the taxes collected on flights booked on or before July 22nd for travel on or after July 23rd.

Affected federal tariffs include a 7.5 percent tax on the base ticket price, a $3.70 segment tax and facilities taxes on international travel and travel to and from Alaska and Hawaii.

Delta says it will begin processing the refunds as soon as the IRS finalizes a procedure for doing so.
