COVID-19: Delta Set to Resume Regular Flights to Africa
As more countries open up their international airspaces following the relaxation of COVID-19 travel bans, Delta has announced plans for the resumption of regular flights to Africa.
Between September and October, Delta will resume service to several major business and leisure markets, including a buildup at its hub in New York-JFK.
In September, Delta will resume flights between Atlanta and Lagos, Nigeria as well as from New York-JFK to Accra, Ghana. In October, flights will resume to Dakar, Senegal.
From October, 2020, Delta will resume flights from Atlanta to Johannesburg. That flight will operate onward to Cape Town before returning to Atlanta. Read more about this flight here.
Delta’s flights to Africa will be operated by a fleet of Airbus A350-900s, and A330-900neos following the retirement of its Boeing 777 aircraft by the end of October 2020.
