Delta flight suspension

Delta Reduces U.S.-Europe Flying, Suspends JFK to Mumbai

Delta will significantly reduce its U.S. to Europe flying beginning Monday, March 16, following the U.S. government directive restricting travel between the U.S. and Europe.

The airline will continue to operate a nearly full schedule of flights from continental Europe to multiple U.S. gateways through Monday, March 16, to ensure eligible customers can return to the U.S.

Starting Monday, Delta will operate one daily flight between the following cities:

  • Atlanta to Amsterdam
  • Atlanta to London-Heathrow
  • Atlanta to Paris-Charles De Gaulle
  • Detroit to Amsterdam
  • Detroit to London-Heathrow
  • New York-JFK to London-Heathrow
  • New York-JFK to Dublin

This schedule will continue to provide customers access to multiple destinations throughout Europe through Delta’s expanded joint venture partnership with Air France, KLM and Virgin Atlantic. Air France and KLM plan to continue their own operations to CDC-designated U.S. airports and are closely coordinating with Delta and Virgin Atlantic as adjustments are made. 

Delta will also temporarily suspend service between New York-JFK and Mumbai starting Tuesday, March 17. The last flight from New York-JFK to Mumbai will operate Saturday, March 14. The last flight from Mumbai to New York-JFK will operate Monday, March 16.

The airline will continue to evaluate customer demand and adjust service as needed.

  • Atlanta to Lagos, Nigeria
  • New York-JFK to Accra, Ghana
  • New York-JFK to Dakar, Senegal

Capped Fares
