(WXYZ) — Delta Airlines will reintroduce limited beverage service on domestic flights beginning July 2.

Select beer and wine will be offered to customers in First Class and Delta Comfort+ with added safety measures, according to the airline.

The beverages will be served on flights greater than 500 miles.

“In keeping with the Delta CareStandard, our goal is to serve all of our food and beverage offerings in the safest way possible – both for our customers and employees,” said Allison Ausband, Delta’s Senior Vice President of In-Flight Service. “We take pride in always listening to our customers, and we know beer and wine are the adult beverages our customers want most. These selections are the first step towards a normalized beverage offering while we continue to keep customer and crew safety at the center of everything we do.”

Flight attendants will pass cans and single-serve bottles using trays to minimize touch-points.
