Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines said if customers have concerns about their tickets booked to areas determined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control to be affected by the Zika virus, they should call Delta customer service.

Delta said customers can call 1-800-221-1212 or the reservations line for their region of the world. The airline said customers can change their reservations without paying certain fees if they make changes by February 29, 2016.

Customers may qualify for a change to alternate destinations, travel dates or a refund, according to Delta.
