Delta Air Lines travelers with essential travel needs can now fly from Atlanta to Amsterdam with the knowledge that their fellow passengers and the crew are COVID-19 negative after undergoing pre-flight testing protocols and without having to quarantine after arrival. An Atlanta to Rome option is coming soon.
Perry Cantarutti, Delta’s Senior Vice President -Alliances and International, said, “Air travel is the backbone of the global economy. In normal times, it supports more than 87 million jobs and contributes to $3.5 trillion in GDP worldwide. The arrival of a vaccine is fantastic news, but it will take time for it to become widely available around the world. It’s for this reason we have worked tirelessly with the authorities and our partners to create a blueprint for travel corridors that will enable air travel to safely resume.”
Delta Air Lines is the first U.S. airline to offer COVID-free, quarantine-free flights between the U.S. and Europe.
