Delta Plane Quarantined at Chicago Midway – Released

Delta Flight Quarantined at Chicago Midway Airport | Airline News

Delta Flight 3163 from Detroit Quarantined

All Clear Issued

Medical officials feared the worst about a passenger returning from Uganda and had the aircraft quarantined, believing the passenger may have had the plague or as later sources now state, monkeypox.  Fortunately, it was just a case of bug bites.

In the end, the bad bug bites caused Delta Flight 3163 from Detroit Metro (DTW) to Chicago Midway (MDW) to be quarantined on the ramp at Chicago Midway.

Passengers were held on the small aircraft, a small, 50 seat regional jet for about two hours upon arrival.

The planes origin, Detroit Metro Airport, is a major international transfer hub for Delta Air Lines with non-stop flights to points across Asia as well as Europe.

Delta 3163 is operated by Delta Connection Carrier Comair with a Bombardier CRJ-200 aircraft which was designed for short hauls.  The flight was supposed to operate back to Detroit Metro, using the same flight number, but the return flight segment has since been cancelled.

Thankfully this came to a quick conclusion for all involved.
