Delta Air Lines said it has placed over 100 people who refused to don masks on its “no-fly” list.

Speaking on the NBC program the Today Show, Ed Bastian, the airline’s CEO, said that anyone who won’t wear a mask won’t fly on Delta.

“We’ve been steadily and rather aggressively stepping up our enforcement of the mask policy,” he said. “You cannot board a Delta plane unless you have a mask on. If you board the plane and insist on not wearing a mask, we insist that you do not fly Delta into the future. We already have 100 people put onto that list.”

On Tuesday, the airline said it would require medical screenings for those passengers who do not want to wear a mask on board its aircraft due to medical reasons.  It also said that it would prefer that those people who cannot wear masks for health reasons reconsider flying amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
