Due to coronavirus, Delta ceases service at 10 US airports: list
Travelers who are accustomed to using the services of Delta Air Lines will now have fewer opportunities to fly out of their convenient airport - the company said it will stop serving at 10 US airports. Writes about it USA Today.
On May 29, Delta representatives announced they were shutting down at 10 US airports serving cities such as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, as part of a previously announced 85% reduction in overall service schedules.
According to airline representatives, airports where services will no longer be available are “relatively close” to other, larger airports that travelers can use as an alternative.
In New York, the Delta service at Westchester County Airport will end, but passengers can still head to LaGuardia. Flights stop at Stewart International, and JFK remains the closest major airport to it.
Delta customers can no longer use Hollywood Burbank Airport and Long Beach in Southern California, but flights to Los Angeles International will continue. There will be no flights to Chicago Midway, but they will continue at Chicago O'Hare Airport.

The changes take effect on June 3 and will be valid until September, the airline said, adding that this reduction is an attempt to reduce the potential exposure of employees to the effects of coronavirus.
“By consolidating operations with a low flow of customers, we can allow more of our people to stay at home in accordance with local health guidelines,” said Senior Vice President Sandy Gordon.
The coronavirus pandemic led to the fact that the tourism business in the United States and the world almost stopped, which very significantly affected the air traffic. Earlier, Nicholas Kalio, CEO of Airlines for America, the most well-known lobbying group in the aviation industry, told the Senate committee that there are an average of 17 passengers on the domestic flight and only 29 travelers on the international flight.
During the pandemic, Delta announced the reduction of domestic flights by 80% and international flights by 90%. The airline canceled fees for changes until September 30, 2022 for customers whose flights were booked until April 17 and canceled before September of this year.
Other airports where Delta will no longer operate include TF Green International and Manchester-Boston Regional, while the neighboring Logan International in Boston will still be served. The company will no longer serve Oakland; San Francisco International is offered as an alternative to passengers.
In addition to these airports, Delta will no longer fly to Newport News / Williamsburg International, located near Norfolk International in Virginia, where flights will continue; and Akron-Canton Airport, although travelers can still head to Cleveland Hopkins in Ohio.
