Delta State Airlines Monday announced plans to resume international flight operations to the U.S on November 8.

The resumption plan was following the lift of travel restrictions to foreign nations by President Joe Biden.

The airline’s Chief Operating Officer (CEO), Mr. Ed Bastian, made the announcement in a statement issued to newsmen in Lagos State.

Bastian said the reopening of international travel would allow for the reunification of thousands of families and friends from around the world who had been separated for more than 18 months.

He said: “Effective November 8, vaccinated international travelers who want to come to the U.S can now do so.
