Delta to Start Tested Flights from JFK to Rome, Milan

Must Read


Delta Air Lines will offer “quarantine-free” flights from New York to Rome and Milan in the coming weeks.

The quarantine-free flights to Rome will begin April 1, followed by Milan on April 2, and both require three separate Covid-19 tests: one PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to departure and rapid tests administered both at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport and upon arrival in Rome and Milan. Passengers who test negative on all three can skip Italy’s 14-day quarantine requirement.

Flights to Milan will operate four times per week, increasing to daily on May 2, and flights to Rome will begin at three times a week, increase to four times per week in May and to daily in June. They will be open to passengers traveling “for essential reasons,” which includes some specified business travel.

The program is set to run through June 30. The policy also applies to flights on Alitalia, an airline partner of Delta’s, from JFK to Rome, though the Alitalia flights require tests to be taken within 48 hours of departure. Delta and Alitalia began Covid-tested flights between Atlanta and Rome late last year as well as tested flights to Amsterdam with partner KLM.
