Plexiglass barrier to be at all Delta US hubs by June 1
The Delta Flight Products subsidiary of Delta Air Lines has designed and manufactured a custom plexiglass safety barrier especially for airport check-in lobbies, departure gates and Delta Sky Club counters.
The Delta Flight Products team worked with Airport Customer Service teams to test installation at Delta's Atlanta hub and is now manufacturing up to 150 barriers every day.
"This is yet another testament to Delta's nimbleness, ingenuity and our relentless commitment to keeping our people and our customers safe in our airports as we all manage the impact of the ongoing pandemic," said Eric Phillips, Delta's Senior Vice President – Airport Customer Service and Cargo in today’s announcement. "We appreciate the agility of our Delta Flight Products colleagues to so quickly and expertly produce these safety barriers, which will add another level of safety as our customers check-in, visit a Delta Sky Club and board their flight."
Full outfitting of the safety barriers at all check-in lobbies and departure gates is expected at Delta's U.S. hub airports by June 1 and at all U.S. locations in the weeks following. Delta Sky Club installations are expected to be complete this summer and Delta also intends to install at airports outside the U.S. in the weeks ahead.
