Delta Is First US Carrier In A Decade To Win Airline Of The Year!

Delta has been named the Airline of the Year by Air Transport World, which is a big deal because it's the first time in a decade a US carrier has won the title. The editors with ATW cited Delta's leadership in various categories as the leading reason for their recognition — applauding the airline's management, financial discipline, excellent safety record, community involvement, environmental and technological pursuits, customer service, and great employee relations.

"It's an honor to have the hard work of Delta people recognized with the Airline of the Year award from Air Transport World," says Richard Anderson, Delta's chief executive officer. "Our values and culture are the foundation for our success. The professionalism and commitment of Delta people to our company, to one another and to our customers is unmatched."
