This week, Delta offered incentive packages - including cash, health benefits, travel passes and career services - to encourage employees to leave the airline for good.

Delta Air Lines on Thursday said it will begin testing employees for COVID-19 and its antibodies, starting at its hub at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

The airline, which is the dominant carrier at MSP, is working with Mayo Clinic and Quest Diagnostics Inc. on the testing regime. The tests are part of a bigger effort to keep its people, planes and facilities free of the virus.

In a memo to employees Thursday, Delta Chief Executive Ed Bastian said the testing will begin at MSP next week, then roll out to Atlanta, where the company is based, Detroit and New York, cities where it also operates hubs.
