Worried about the air you are going to breathe on your next Delta flight in a COVID-19 world? Don’t be explains Dr. Michael Saag, professor of medicine and infectious disease at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

He explains that the air you will breathe on your next flight is clean, safe, and healthy, thanks to sophisticated cabin air filtration systems and extra steps Delta is taking to maintain to give customers peace of mind.

It’s all part of the airline’s CareStandard, an on-going commitment across multiple layers of safety. Customers can expect it every time they travel with Delta: from the check-in lobby, through security, at the gate, onboard, and through baggage claim.

The company is constantly updating best practices and improving the new standard of care based on expert medical advice and the feedback of customers.

For a look at the the capacity caps the company has in place through September 30, click here. This will entail blocking middle seats and capping seating at 60 percent in the main cabin and 50 percent in first class. On routes where increasing customer demand is driving flight loads closer to its caps, Delta will look for opportunities to upsize to a larger aircraft type or add more flights.
