Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines is no longer as of Wednesday flying to 10 U.S. airports, including ones in New York, Chicago and California.

Delta says it’s temporarily consolidating routes from smaller airports to larger ones. Their goal is to reduce the number of near-empty flights and to protect workers from exposure to the coronavirus.

Flights slated for Chicago’s Midway airport will now fly into O’Hare. Hollywood-Burbank and Long Beach airports will fly into Los Angeles International Airport.

Westchester County Airport now runs out of LaGuardia, and New York Stewart International Airport, for now, flies out of JFK.

The airline says their customers with affected travel plans may change their flights.

Delta has extended its waived change fees and the flexibility to travel through Sept. 30, 2022, to customers with canceled travel through September 2020.

Earlier this month, Delta Air Lines began requiring all passengers to wear masks or face coverings at boarding gates and on flights.  And Delta employees are to wear masks at work when they’re within 6 feet of other people.
