Delta Paris-to-Atlanta flights taking off as planned

Delta Air Lines, the Atlanta-based global corporation perhaps most immediately affected by the events in Paris, reported late Saturday afternoon that its flights from the U.S. to Paris were taking off as planned with no delays.

The airline offered passengers flying to or from Paris, Toulouse, Nice and several other French destinations the option to alter their flying plans without change fees. A Delta spokesman said those opting for the change was minimal.

Earlier in the day, the airline said all incoming flights from Paris had departed France by 8 a.m.

“A handful of these flights have seen departure delays, up to one hour, waiting for passengers delayed in security lines,” the airline said of the Paris-to-Atlanta flights.

Spokespeople for UPS and Coca-Cola said their operations were continuing on Saturday.

“We are monitoring the situation closely to ensure the continued safety of our associates and partners,” said a statement Saturday from Coca-Cola. “Our operations continue as normal at this time.”

UPS spokesman Dan McMakin said there was no word yet about service disruptions in Europe.

“Most deliveries take place during the week,” he said. “I haven’t heard of any flight delays or any kind of disruption.”

France is a leading trade partner for Georgia, according to Keisha Hines, a spokeswoman for the Georgia Chamber of Commerce. There are more than 250 French facilities in Georgia, including about 70 that are manufacturing-related.
