US carrier Delta Air Lines released a list of international services that will begin in May. While international capacity will be down almost 90%, select routes will see scheduled flights operate again, allowing for the movement of people and cargo.

The reinstated routes

Most of the announced resumptions are on routes within North and South America. Major overseas routes to Asia, Australia, Europe, and Africa will remain suspended for the time being. Most of those countries are still under significant travel restrictions if not a complete lockdown.

Delta will reinstate four daily flights to Canada. Some will operate more than once per day. Most will see Delta Connection service with some mainline flights:

  1. Detroit to Montreal
  2. Detroit to Toronto
  3. New York-JFK to Toronto
  4. Seattle to Vancouver

Another three will operate on less than daily frequencies. A quick search on Google Flights sees these routes will fly about five times per week:

  1. Detroit to Ottawa
  2. Minneapolis to Calgary
  3. Minneapolis to Edmonton

To the Caribbean, two routes will resume out of New York-JFK while five will resume out of Atlanta.:

  1. Atlanta to Nassau
  2. Atlanta to Providenciales (Saturday only)
  3. Atlanta to St. Croix (Saturday only)
  4. Atlanta to St. Thomas
  5. Atlanta to San Juan, Puerto Rico
  6. New York-JFK to Santiago, Dominican Republic
  7. New York-JFK to Santo Domingo
