West Africa Health Situation

Health concerns may impact travel to/from/through West, Africa. Delta has been informed by officials that all airline passengers are subject to health screenings at airports in Accra, Ghana; Dakar, Senegal and Lagos, Nigeria. The health screenings are precautionary and in response to reported viral illness activity in other African countries.

Additionally, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control has advised Delta that airline passengers with recent travel to Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia will be subject to health screenings upon arrival in the U.S. at New York-JFK, Newark Liberty, Washington-Dulles, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta and Chicago O’Hare International airports.

Delta recommends arriving at the airport at least two hours prior to scheduled departure time. Check flight status frequently for up-to-the-minute info about your flight plans, or get updates sent directly to your wireless device or email with Delta Messenger.

Even if your flight is not canceled, you may make a one-time change to your ticket without fee if you are scheduled to travel to, from, or through the following destination(s) on Delta, Delta Connection®, or Delta-coded flights during the specified time periods listed below.
