In Friday’s update from Governor Holcomb, it was encouraged that those who work in office settings continue to work remotely whenever possible. In the interest of safety for our staff and customers, Menno Travel will remain working remotely. I want to stress that we will continue to be here for all the Travel Planners and travelers during this time to assist in whatever we can. We are still just a phone call or email away!
Due to many customers being closed, until further notice our hours of operation will be 8:00-12:00 and 1:00-5:00.
We will continue checking email frequently. However, if you have an urgent issue and need immediate assistance, please call our office at 574-534-1521/800-635-0963 and enter the extension of the person you’re trying to reach (listed below). Your call will automatically be forwarded to that individual’s cell phone. Please note there may be a few seconds of dial-tone followed by a few seconds of silence while your call is forwarded.
The decision comes as U.S. airlines and regulators are facing increasing pressure from Congress and flight attendant unions to require face masks. However, the DOT, FAA and the five largest U.S. carriers have thus far resisted such calls. Most carriers have begun requiring flight attendants to wear masks.
“This new measure is aligned with CDC recommendations and those of many municipalities within the U.S. that include wearing a face covering when out in public,” Frontier CEO Barry Biffle said.
Delta Waives SkyBonus Requirements for 2020
Delta Air Lines is waiving 2020 minimums for its SkyBonus accounts, the carrier announced. Companies that were active in the program last year will not need to meet the $5,000 spending and five unique employee traveler minimums, and they will remain active in the program through the end of 2021. Companies in their first year do not have minimum requirements, and those companies will keep that waiver through the end of 2021 as well. In addition, Delta is extending SkyBonus Elite status levels through the end of 2021 and is extending the expiration dates for SkyBonus points and travel award certificates.
