Coronavirus COVID-19 has prompted Delta Air Lines to issue a travel waiver for some of its passengers traveling through Seoul’s Incheon International Airport (ICN).

UPDATE: Delta has suspended the MSP-ICN route and reduced three others.

It appears the waiver is effective retroactively, beginning January 24 through April 30, 2020. Tickets must be reissued on before May 31, with new travel originating on or before May 31, as well.

BBC reports that South Korea raised its coronavirus alert to the highest level and President Moon Jae-in said the country faces “a grave turning point.”

Delta has not suspended flights to ICN. But given that other airlines such as Air New Zealand and Bamboo Airways have announced South Korean flight suspensions, it certainly wouldn’t be surprising if Delta and other carriers follow suit. Delta previously suspended all of its operations to/from China through at least April.
