Delta will add 1,000 flights in August but that may be it for the year


Delta Air Lines has parked dozens of planes at Pinal Airpark, in Red Rock, Ariz., as part of its adjustment to lower demand for air travel during the coronavirus pandemic.

Delta Air Lines expects to add about 1,000 flights in August but not many more for the remainder of the year, Chief Executive Ed Bastian said in a memo on Thursday that mentioned a resurgence of COVID-19 in parts of the country.

Airlines including Delta have added back some summer capacity after modest improvements in domestic-travel demand in May and June, but analysts said a spike in cases in some states could dampen the recovery.

Bastian said Delta continues to see slow-but-steady increase in passenger volumes two weeks into the summer-travel season, but warned that the airline expects overall demand this summer to be only 25% of last summer's revenue.
