Delta Offers More Quarantine-Free Flights to Europe

Delta is expanding its offerings of quarantine-free flights to Italy, with the addition of a new route from New York-JFK to Milan Malpensa airport. These flights will launch on April 2, 2021, a day after it launches to Rome Fiumicino. The services will enable customers eligible to travel to Italy to avoid the mandatory 14-day quarantine on arrival, following a rigorous testing protocol before and after travel.

“A year after air travel stalled to levels not seen in living memory, these COVID-tested, quarantine-free flights provide a real boost to the aviation industry,” said Delta’s Alain Bellemare in a press release. “We are starting to see more global vaccination programs but until they become more widespread, corridor flights like this can help keep our customers and crew safer when they fly.”

The flights to Milan will initially operate four times a week in April before moving to a daily operation from May 2, while flights to Rome will operate three times a week and increase to four times a week in May and daily in June.

The program provides customers with reassurance to fly safely and could be a way forward for airlines, while vaccination efforts against COVID-19 roll out worldwide. Customers traveling to Italy must test negative a total of three times – including twice before departure. On arrival at Milan Malpensa and Rome Fiumicino, customers will be asked to make their way to the testing facility within the airport terminal where medical professionals administer a rapid antigen test. If this is negative, they will not need to quarantine. Current entry requirements for Italy normally include 14 days of quarantine.

Delta first launched quarantine-free flights to Europe in December with the introduction of services from Atlanta to both Rome and Amsterdam in a collaboration with local partners Alitalia and KLM.
