Delta Offers Free Flights To Volunteer Medical Workers

USA Today reports:

Delta Air Lines is stepping up in the fight against coronavirus. While the airline slashed flight capacity by 40% earlier this month, they are finding ways to help mobilize medical volunteers amidst the pandemic.

Late Friday night, Delta announced on its website that it would be offering free flights to medical volunteers looking to fly to the “front lines” to help fight COVID-19 in “significantly impacted” areas of the country. The flights will begin departing in April and are available for booking up to three days before takeoff.

“Eligible medical volunteers will be able to book round-trip Delta flights free of charge to Georgia, Louisiana and Michigan, where they will work in coordination with the state and local government offices,” Delta said in the announcement.
