Markus Mainka /

Delta Air Lines has announced that it is suspending its codeshare agreement with Russian airline Aeroflot. The announcement, made on February 25, 2022, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“We have removed our code from Aeroflot-operated services beyond Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport and removed Aeroflot’s code from Delta-operated services from Los Angeles and New York-JFK. Accommodations will be made for customers affected by these changes,” Delta Air Lines said in a statement. 

The airline also added that it does not operate flights to Ukraine and Russia. 

Delta Air Lines is just one of many groups withdrawing support for Russia. The EU, UK, and Canada have closed their respective air spaces to all Russian-owned, registered, and controlled aircraft. 

Delta Air Lines and Aeroflot are both members of the SkyTeam alliance. The airline alliance said that it is monitoring ongoing events in Ukraine closely and “is in contact with all our members to assess the situation as it evolves”.
