The airline said it will send itinerary changes via email or mobile device to customers that provide their contact information to Delta. If a flight is canceled, Delta rebooks customers automatically on the next available flight.
Delta CEO Ed Bastian is among the airline CEOs that signed a letter to government officials Monday warning that 5G interference could cause “significant operational disruption” to airline passengers and shippers.
Hartsfield-Jackson said it will work with neighboring jurisdictions to monitor and address the possible expansion of 5G cell towers adjacent to the airport.
“Diversions at other airports caused by the implementation of 5G may create increased traffic at ATL, but those impacts are expected to be minimal and will be handled by the Airport’s operations teams,” the Atlanta airport said in a statement.
