Delta Resume Puerto Rico Flights

Pending continued facility damage assessments at San Juan’s Luis Munoz International Airport, Delta plans to restart operations to Puerto Rico Saturday, with flights between the island and its hubs in Atlanta and New York-JFK International. Customers are encouraged to check flight status for the most up to date information.

Elsewhere in the Caribbean, Delta resumed its full schedule to the Dominican Republic Thursday with flights to Punta Cana, Santo Domingo and Santiago. To offer customers more opportunity to travel to or from the island, Delta added two additional flights to Punta Cana.

Flights to Providenciales in Turks and Caicos and St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands are cancelled Thursday and Delta is evaluating a Friday restart. The airline continues to evaluate operations at St. Maarten, which were suspended after the island was badly hit by Hurricanes Irma, Jose and Maria.

Delta has capped Main Cabin, one-way nonstop fares at $199 for flights departing San Juan, Punta Cana, Santiago and Santo Domingo through Sept. 25 - the airline extended the period Thursday - 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 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 to check the status of booked flights to the region.

Limited flights to Key West Airport, which has been closed since Hurricane Irma battered the Florida Keys, resumed Wednesday.
