Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines issued a statement Saturday morning indicating it was ending its discounted travel program for members of the National Rifle Association.
Delta is reaching out to the National Rifle Association to let it know we will be ending its contract for discounted rates through our group travel program. We will be requesting that the NRA remove our information from its website.
Less than an hour after Delta announced its plans, rival carrier United Airlines announced similar plans in a Tweet.
The air carriers are the latest to sever ties with the organization since a gunman killed 17 people at a Florida high school more than a week ago.
