Delta suspends multiple services due to COVID-19

Delta airline has announced Saturday it will suspend services to certain airports.

According to a release, Delta stated it will start suspending services on May 13, even though that customer volume has significantly reduced. Service to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport will continue for now.

"These changes will allow more of our frontline employees to minimize their COVID-19 exposure risk while ensuring convenient access to Delta’s network for those who must travel," Delta stated.

The temporarily suspended airports include:

  • Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW)
  • Oakland International Airport (OAK)
  • Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR)
  • Long Beach Airport (LGB)
  • T. F. Green International Airport (PVD)
  • Westchester County Airport (HPN)
  • Stewart International Airport (SWF)
  • Akron-Canton Airport (CAK)
  • Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT)
  • Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport (PHF)

Delta will also temporarily suspend service to Saskatoon International Airport beginning May 13.

Stations will remain closed at least until September 2020 as Delta continues to evaluate overall network needs.

Delta will re-accommodate customers whose travel is impacted as a result of service suspensions in these stations.

“The safety of our employees and customers remains our primary focus as we navigate these challenges together,” said Sandy Gordon, Senior Vice President – Domestic Airport Operations. “By consolidating operations while customer traffic is low, we can allow more of our people to stay home in accordance with local health guidelines.”
