Delta Air Lines said it has placed over 240 people who refused to don masks on its planes and in its gate areas and lounges on its “no-fly” list.

Delta CEO Ed Bastian made the announcement in a memorandum to employees which was viewed by Frequent Business Traveler magazine.

Bastian has repeatedly said that anyone who won’t wear a mask won’t fly on Delta amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’ve been steadily and rather aggressively stepping up our enforcement of the mask policy,” he said in an interview on the Today news program in July. “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.”

Also in July, 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.
