Due to the spread of the novel coronavirus in parts of Italy, Delta Air Lines and American Airlines are temporarily suspending some flights between US airports and Milan.
Delta is suspending flights between New York’s busy John F. Kennedy International Airport and Milan Malpensa, the largest airport in northern Italy and a major hub for Alitalia, the airline said in a statement.
Delta’s last New York-to-Milan flight will take off Monday, while the last flight in the opposite direction is scheduled for Tuesday. Service is set to resume on May 1 or 2.
Delta added that flights between Rome and Atlanta were not affected.
American Airlines said late Saturday that it was suspending service between New York and Milan as well as between Miami and Milan until April 25, citing a “reduction in demand.”
Both airlines said passengers will have a choice of rebooking on a later flight or being reimbursed.
US authorities on Saturday asked Americans not to travel to the areas in Italy and South Korea hardest-hit by the virus.
