COVID-19: American and Delta Suspend Italy Flights

While the Coronavirus Disease is rapidly spreading in Asian countries, we also cannot ignore that there are already more than 1100 confirmed cases in Italy. Two major US carriers, American Airlines and Delta Air Lines, are responding to this situation by suspending all flights to and from Milan, Italy.

If Your Flight is Cancelled

At the point of writing, American Airlines, Delta or your travel agency, should have already reached out to you to provide alternative arrangements.

If you think that the new arrangement is not suitable for you, first go online to search for some flight alternatives. Then you may contact the airline company or travel agency to let them make the new arrangements for you.

If you do not want to travel anymore, both airlines will now allow you to get a full refund for the affected tickets.

The other US carrier flying to Milan, United Airlines, have not made any changes to their schedule at this point.
