Must Read

Delta Airlines announced on Monday that international flights to the United States will resume on November 8.

President Joe Biden lifted travel restrictions to foreign countries, prompting the resuming plan.

Mr. Ed Bastian, the airline’s Chief Operating Officer (CEO), made the announcement in a message to the press in Lagos.


The restoration of international travel, according to Bastian, will allow thousands of families and friends from all over the world to reunite after being separated for more than 18 months.


Delta FlyReady, the airline’s integrated digital health credential platform, will allow passengers to upload required COVID-19 test/vaccine papers, according to the airline’s CEO.


“Effective Nov. 8, vaccinated international travelers who want to come to the U.S. can now do so.

“This is the sequel to Joe Biden Administration’s announcement that it will lift travel restrictions on foreign nationals that have been in place since the beginning of the COVID-19.
“International travel is vital to help reverse the devastating economic impact on America’s travel and tourism industry, which was hit hard by the pandemic.

“It is also an essential component in recovering global trade and commerce, particularly across the Atlantic. New York-JFK to London Heathrow is the world’s most important route for business travel.”


The airline’s CEO applauded the administration’s decision to welcome foreign nationals back to the United States beginning Nov. 8.

He also lauded the remarkable scientific efforts undertaken by the administration to protect public health through world-leading vaccination programs and health safety protocols, U.S. borders can safely be reopened.

Bastian said the Delta passengers were excited to play their part in reuniting families for the holidays and reconnecting the world after more than 19 months apart.

However, the airline’s chief said while leisure travel had remained consistently high, the airline was adding more flights across the globe as demand for international and business travel returns.

“In November, customers traveling to the U.S. from across the pond can easily connect to Atlanta, Boston, Detroit, New York-JFK, Minneapolis, Seattle, and Salt Lake City.

“These are with over 190 weekly nonstop flights from 16 markets in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa,” he said.

Bastian added that this includes partners Air France, KLM and Virgin Atlantic, passengers had an even greater choice with over 430 weekly flights to the U.S.
