Delta Airlines, which has one of its major hubs at Salt Lake City International Airport, has suspended operations to 10 U.S airports where there is more than one airport in the market. The company said it made the move in an effort to increase health and safety measures as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
The airports where Delta will temporarily suspend service include Chicago Midway International Airport, Oakland International Airport, Hollywood Burbank Airport, Long Beach Airport, T. F. Green International Airport in Rhode Island, Westchester County Airport and Stewart International Airport in New York, Akron-Canton Airport in Ohio, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport and Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport in Virginia.
The company said it is expecting service to those airports to be suspended until at least September.
“The safety of our employees and customers remains our primary focus as we navigate these challenges together,” Sandy Gordon, Delta’s senior vice president of domestic airport operations, said in a news release. “By consolidating operations while customer traffic is low, we can allow more of our people to stay home in accordance with local health guidelines.”
