Delta Air Lines is trying to make it easier for customers to navigate the evolving travel requirements.
The airline announced that customers would soon be able to purchase at-home COVID-19 to meet international travel requirements. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a pack of six COVID-19 tests can be purchased on Delta’s website for $150, plus taxes and shipping.
The kits will allow passengers to test before departure and then “pack another with them to comply with negative-test requirements before their trip back to the US,” the carrier said in a statement.
“Customers have more travel information coming their way than ever before, with updated COVID-19 testing requirements to digest, new forms to complete, and different digital experiences to download and navigate,” said Bill Lentsch, Delta’s Chief Customer Experience Officer. “From simplifying testing to developing an integrated suite of tools on Delta.com, we’re continuing to introduce additional features meant to enhance the existing experience and strengthen the airline’s position as a leader in charting the global recovery.”
Delta also plans to allow customers to upload documents verifying COVID-19 test results on its website.
Beginning with U.S.-entry flights, the airline is working with the app TrustAssure, so customers can directly upload and verify their documents at check-in.
