Delta on Friday became the latest entity to sever professional ties with the Russian airline Aeroflot amid Russia's ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

Delta said in a statement on its website that it had "withdrawn [its] codeshare services operated in conjunction with Russian national airline, Aeroflot, effective immediately."

A "codeshare" is "a commercial agreement between two airlines that allows an airline to put its two-letter identification code on the flights of another airline." Delta said it had "removed our code from Aeroflot-operated services beyond Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport and removed Aeroflot's code from Delta-operated services from Los Angeles and New York-JFK."

"Accommodations will be made for customers affected by these changes," the airline noted, adding that Delta "does not operate services to Ukraine or Russia."
