Delta Air Lines is suspending all flights to Italy due to the coronavirus.
Atlanta-based Delta said Tuesday it would suspend its last remaining flight to Italy -- from New York to Rome -- from March 11 through April 30.
The cuts are a response to government restrictions on travel due to the outbreak of COVID-19, or the coronavirus.
Delta said it will not operate flights to Italy during the government-mandated emergency measures and travel restrictions.
The airline is also suspending flights from New York to Tel Aviv from March 14-24.
Delta said passengers whose flights are affected can rebook on alternate flights, get refunds or contact the airline to discuss other options.
Flights between New York and Milan on Delta are suspended until May 20. The last Delta flight from Milan to New York operated March 3.
Other cuts include delaying the launch of summer season flights, which typically begin April 1, from from Detroit to Rome until May 1 and from New York to Venice until May 21.
There have been more than 9,100 cases of COVID-19 reported in Italy.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is advising travelers to avoid non-essential travel to Italy and the State Department has raised its travel warning to “do not travel” to the regions in Italy most affected by coronavirus.
The State Department issued a do not travel advisory for Lombardy, where Milan is the capital, and Veneto.
Passengers coming to the United States from Italy and South Korea are being screened.
