Delta Air Lines has issued a travel waiver in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

The waiver is effective now through Friday, January 31. UPDATED: Now February 29.

Both affected airports are in China: Beijing Capital (PEK) and Shanghai (PVG).

Tickets must be reissued on or before February 29 March 31, with rebooked travel commencing no later than February 29 March 31 as well.

Passengers may make a one-time change without being assessed a fee, though fare differences may apply.

“Travelers with Wuhan in their journey are being screened by the CDC upon arrival to New York, San Francisco, Atlanta, Chicago-O’Hare and Los Angeles, in addition to screenings in China,” Delta notes. “Other U.S. airports are also reportedly screening passengers who have Wuhan as part of their travel journey.

Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a level 3 travel advisory​, which recommends travelers avoid nonessential travel to Wuhan, China. Delta continues to be in direct contact with the CDC and is following their guidelines.”

  1. Will be watching this closely as I have an MU JFK-PVG-SIN Mileage Run scheduled in late March.

  2. Seems a little unforgiving on Delta’s part? Wonder how many employees called in sick (not wanting to go) for their China flights? Looked at Delta availability today on their LAX & SEA-PVG flights plenty of availability in Delta One!

    I never purchase the insurance on the Delta website. I’m wondering a couple of things and maybe this subject might be better to make in another post?
    – Does the insurance you purchase on the Delta site cover this if you did not want to go?
    – If you use an Amex Plat to book airfare does it’s travel insurance cover this again if you did not want to go.
    – What about if you booked the airfare with Delta Amex cards Reserve / Plat would it again cover travel costs if you canceled?
