Delta has already placed more than 100 people on a no-fly list for refusing to wear a mask, the carrier’s CEO Ed Bastian said.
“We’ve been… steadily and rather aggressively stepping up our enforcement of the mask policy,” Bastian said. “You cannot board a Delta plane unless you have a mask on. If you board the plane and you insist on not wearing your mask, we will insist that you don’t fly Delta into the future.”
The enforcement comes as Delta has implemented a “Clearance-to-Fly” process, requiring passengers who claim they can’t wear a mask for medical reasons receive pre-approval before boarding.
Ultimately, Bastian suggested passengers who cannot wear a mask should probably consider other means of transportation.
