Delta CEO sees some recovery from travel slump later in 2021

The leader of Delta Air Lines is telling workers that he expects some recovery from the coronavirus travel downturn by the spring

DETROIT — The leader of Delta Air Lines is telling workers that he expects some recovery from the coronavirus travel downturn by the spring.

Bastian wrote that there is uncertainty over what travel demand will look like once significant numbers of people are vaccinated, and that Delta must be nimble and ready for change.

“Just as we’ve never experienced a global pandemic in our history, we’ve also never had to create and execute a plan for recovery from one,” Bastian wrote. “Our success will depend on our collaboration, our willingness to be open to new ideas, our ability to adapt and our humility in recognizing that we won’t always know the answers.”

Air travel is less than half of what it was in 2019, but it has recovered a bit from a staggering 96% decline in mid-April of last year.
