With its partnership with LATAM, Delta Airline Lines will be adding 13 new daily flights to Miami International Airport (MIA), with new service from locations in Orlando, Raleigh-Durham, Salt Lake City and Tampa.

With this expansion, Delta will be offering 41 daily non-stop options between 10 American airports and Miami. These new flights will be available to book starting January 18, 2020, and begin operation in the summer of 2020.

“By expanding service at MIA, Delta Air Lines is helping us meet the growing travel needs of our community,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez. “These new flights ensure that Miami-Dade continues to build its reputation as not only a key destination for regional travelers, but also a critical gateway to the Americas and the rest of the world for international travelers.”

Delta will also be offering customers fare deals on flights to Miami to celebrate its new developments. You can check this page as the new routes become available for sale. Customers will also be able to receive benefits from a reciprocal loyalty program.

Delta Airlines and LATAM are working to become the best carrier connecting the Americas. Their partnership means the joining of the leading airlines in North and South America, so more passengers will be carried between North and South America than any airline partnership. Thus, travelers will have options from over 400 destinations worldwide.

Delta and LATAM have also announced plans to launch codeshare sales for select flights operated by certain LATAM affiliates in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.

TSA Bans TikTok Videos From Agency Social Media Accounts

Published

on

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced Sunday employees would no longer be permitted to use TikTok to post on behalf of the agency’s social media accounts.

According to the New York Post, the decision to ban the use of the Chinese owned video-sharing app comes after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer voiced concerns about potential national security issues.

TSA officials said several employees who managed the agency’s social media accounts had used the TikTok platform to create videos that were shared with followers, but the agency has told its staff they are no longer allowed to use the video-sharing app on TSA accounts.

While the TSA never had a TikTok account or posted content directly to the platform, the federal agency’s employees posted videos on TSA social media accounts that featured the social media platform’s logo in the corner.

Senator Schumer began advocating for the agency to stop using TikTok after he called on intelligence officials to investigate the platform to protect national security. He followed up his comments with a letter to TSA Administrator David Pekoske on Saturday, which sparked the ban.

When asked about the decision, Schumer defended his position and cited a Department of Homeland Security rule prohibiting TikTok on agency devices. The Department of Defense and the State Department have also banned employees from posting on the social media platform.

“Given the widely reported threats, the already-in-place agency bans, and the existing concerns posed by TikTok, the feds cannot continue to allow the TSA’s use of the platform to fly,” Schumer said in a statement.

“These videos sure do make you chuckle; they’re creative,” the senator continued. “But China might be laughing at these TSA postings for very different reasons, and that should concern us and it’s why I am urging the TSA to find a different platform, and cease its use of TikTok now.”
