Compass Airlines — a regional operator for Delta Air Lines and American Airlines — will reportedly cease operations April 7.
Delta announced last year it would end its Compass relationship around this time anyway. The airline planned to continue flying for American — but now even that won’t happen.
Substantial drops in travel because of the coronavirus pandemic are wreaking havoc on the airline industry (indeed, pretty much most businesses).
CNBC writes that Rick Leach, CEO of Trans States Airlines (Compass’ parent company) sent employees a memo that read in part, “It’s difficult to articulate or even comprehend the speed at which the coronavirus has changed our industry and our world, and the impact it has had on our company. The impact of this global crisis is real and unfortunately, no carrier, mainline or regional, is immune from its reach.”
