By Rachelle Harry

Delta Cargo, the airfreight division of Delta Air Lines, has launched a charter operation to provide “safe and reliable transportation of customers’ goods” during the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

The company’s cargo arm will facilitate the chartering of any Delta mainline aircraft to and from participating US airports.

Shawn Cole, vice president, Delta Cargo, explained in a statement: “Serving our customers and communities where we live, work and serve, is part of Delta’s DNA. Offering new supply chain solutions through Delta Cargo to our customers is one opportunity for us to provide the support our customers tell us they need during this unprecedented business environment.”

Thirteen US airports are participating in Delta Cargo’s charter operation, as well as more than 70 international airports.

Delta Cargo’s announcement comes as freight forwarders brace for capacity shortages on the transatlantic as airlines axe capacity between Europe and the US.

The 13 US airports are:

  • John F. Kennedy International Airport – JFK
  • Chicago O’Hare International Airport – ORD
  • San Francisco International Airport – SFO
  • Seattle-Tacoma International Airport – SEA
  • Daniel K. Inouye International Airport – HNL
  • Los Angeles International Airport – LAX
  • Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport – ATL
  • Washington-Dulles International Airport -IAD
