We’re proud of the Delta Difference

We believe in a very simple philosophy: we take care of our people and our people take care of our customers. When this happens, our owners and communities also benefit. We’re not perfect, and together we’ve faced difficult times, but our demonstrated commitment to caring for people is the foundation for our success.

"Where there are Delta people, it is a better community. We like to be a part of the town...the community...and we put something into it.” - C.E. Woolman


Delta’s history has always been closely tied to the history of American aviation—we evolved and grew alongside the airline industry. Over the past 95 years, we’ve forged a deep and distinctive culture that is recognized around the world—The Delta Difference.
