As economies reopen and border restrictions lift, Delta Air Lines (Delta) will add almost 1,000 flights system-wide in July, boosting service and nonstop connectivity to popular summer destinations and major business markets.

Customers traveling or considering travel this summer can feel confident in a safe experience throughout the journey, from check-in to baggage claim. Delta has implemented several measures to encourage extra space and provide peace of mind at the airport, as well as committed to capping cabin seating at 60% in Main Cabin and 50% in First Class and blocking middle seats through Sept. 30, 2020.

Even with the modest growth in demand, Delta’s July schedule will be approximately 65% smaller than the same time last year, including reductions of about 60% for U.S. domestic travel and nearly 85% for international.

As to the remainder of the summer travel season, the airline will stay focused on adding seat capacity, gradually rebuilding its footprint in local markets and resuming high-demand service suspended due to travel restrictions.
