Delta Airlines Launches Contact Tracing In The USA

Delta Airlines is partnering with Centres for Disease Control & Prevention to ensure that international customers stay informed of potential Covid-19 exposure through contact tracing. Delta is working with nine global airline partners, government agencies, health officials and aviation authorities to offer safer travel throughout a traveler’s journey. 

Customers will have to provide five pieces of data to help with contact tracing

From December 15th, Delta Airlines will be the  first United States-based airline to ask customers traveling internationally to voluntarily provide five pieces of data to aid contact tracing and public health follow-up efforts. This information should include full name, email and address in the United States, as well as two phone numbers.

“Independent studies have shown that the many layers of protection Delta has already put in place are effectively minimising the risk of Covid-19 transmission, and contact tracing adds one more important layer to our efforts to ensure safety throughout travel. “We want customers to feel safe when they return to travel, and this voluntary program is another way we can provide additional reassurance to customers and employees alike,” said Bill Lentsch, Delta chief customer experience officer.
