Delta Runs Wilma Evac Flights For CUN

Fri Oct 28, 2005 7:38 am

Working with local Mexican officials in Cancun, Delta is assisting with the evacuation effort for tourists by operating daily relief flights into and out of Cancun through Saturday. The aircraft, Boeing 767-300 and Boeing 737-800, are arriving in Cancun carrying relief supplies including water, food and generators, and departing with evacuees. Mexican officials are selecting some passengers based on need. Delta is assisting its customers further by reaccommodating them to their final destinations once they arrive in Atlanta.

Delta will operate three relief flights to Cancun on Thursday and is scheduled to operate two relief flights a day on both Friday and Saturday. Delta is prepared to increase the amount of flying based on requests from Mexican officials.

Delta flew more than 400 evacuees from Cancun on Wednesday and was planning to fly more than 650 evacuees Thursday.

Delta hopes to resume a normal operating schedule on Sunday, once the Cancun airport's basic operating needs are restored, including water and electricity. Delta also is hoping to resume its weekend service to Cozumel, Mexico, as soon as conditions will allow.

Well, lets see how long it takes the bashers to come on here and start throttling DL and there CH11 and this being unnecessary expense.

Yep, US is sending a 767 from CLT, and a 757 from PHX.
