Well, that escalated quickly.
Delta’s previous announcement it will curtail flights to China next week changed rather drastically today.
The last Delta flight from China to the United States now departs tomorrow, February 2. The final US to China operation leaves today.
“The airline had previously announced a plan to suspend operations effective Feb. 6 but advanced that timeline based on new U.S. requirements that will deny entry to foreign nationals who have traveled to China within the past two weeks, or subject to possible quarantine those U.S. citizens who have been in China’s Hubei province,” the airline said.
All of this is in response to the deadly coronavirus epidemic.
“Delta’s first priority is to assist its customers and take care of its crews. The airline is working with customers to make adjustments to their travel plans, leveraging codeshare partners where appropriate.”
Flights between the countries are expected to resume in May, “though the airline will continue to monitor the situation closely and may make additional adjustments as the situation continues to evolve.”
