Delta is planning to operate two roundtrip flights to San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Monday, following one trip on Sunday.
Luis Munoz Marin International Airport's governing authority set a 10-flight per day limit on commercial airline service through the weekend, expanding that number to 20 per day Monday. Customers are encouraged to check flight status prior to leaving for the airport, and only ticketed passengers should come to the airport.
Delta also operated a humanitarian flight Saturday to bring Red Cross humanitarian aid workers as well as thousands of pounds of much-needed food, water and other supplies. The return flight to Atlanta provided transportation for those who are looking to leave the island.
Elsewhere in the Caribbean, operations at Providenciales in Turks and Caicos resumed on Sunday, and operations at St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands remain suspended with a possible restart Wednesday, pending infrastructure evaluation. The airline continues to evaluate its operations at St. Maarten, which were halted after the island was badly hit by Hurricanes Irma, Jose and Maria.
Delta resumed its full schedule to the Dominican Republic Thursday with flights to Punta Cana, Santo Domingo and Santiago, and added two additional flights to Punta Cana.
Delta has capped Main Cabin, one-way nonstop fares at $199 for flights departing San Juan, Punta Cana, Santiago and Santo Domingo through Oct. 9 — the airline extended the period Monday — and is temporarily waiving baggage and pet in cabin fees for customers traveling to and from San Juan and several other airports in the region. See delta.com for a full list.
A travel waiver has been issued for passengers flying out of San Juan from Sept. 19-26. The waiver, which allows customers to change plans without incurring a fee, also covers customers from St. Maarten, St. Thomas, and Turks and Caicos with tickets issued from Sept. 5 to Dec. 31. Delta advises customers to visit delta.com to check the status of booked flights to the region.
