Delta Air Lines is slowly adding flights to its schedule as the world starts to open up after the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be adding approximately 1,000 flights in July with a focus on Florida, the West Coast, and business markets.
In North America, Delta is adding non-stop flights from major hubs including Atlanta, Detroit, Minnesota and Salt Lake City.
With borders opening in Latin America and demand increasing, the airline is also adding flights to this region. Vacation hotspots including Cancun, Los Cabos, Montego Bay, Nassau, St. Thomas, and Punta Cana, are the focus. Service to Aruba, St. Maarten, and Costa Rica will also resume.
Delta is also restarting its service between Seattle and Shanghai-Pudong via Seoul-Incheon on June 25, operating twice per week. Starting in July, it will operate once-weekly flights from Seattle and Detroit, also via Incheon.
Delta is the first U.S. airline to re-connect the U.S. and China since the temporary suspension in February due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
“We are excited to resume our services between the U.S. and China, as economic and social activities start to recover,” said Wong Hong, Delta’s president, Greater China and Singapore, in a statement. “With a mission to connect the world, Delta is committed to getting our customers to their destinations safely and confidently, especially at this critical time. We are implementing unprecedented health and safety measures and practices, so customers are assured of ease and safety at all points of their journey.”
