What started as a humble, little aerial crop dusting operation called Huff Daland Dusters in 1924 has now grown into one of the world’s largest global airlines, helping more than 160 million travelers get to the places they want to go to each year.
At Delta, we’re committed to operating in a sustainable manner and are always looking for new ways to reduce our environmental footprint. Some of our most recent efforts include improving fuel efficiency of our aircraft and ground support equipment, reducing and recycling operational waste, evaluating alternative fuels, providing commute options for employees, and creating opportunities for customers to offset greenhouse gas emissions associated with their flights.
Strong core values and a clear set of unifying behaviors provide a solid foundation for Delta’s culture. Our values are the basis for everything we do. When Delta people encounter situations, they use their values and professionalism, along with training and experience to guide their actions and decisions. Each of us has the opportunity every day to be a leader in how we represent Delta, how we handle difficult and unpredictable situations, how we use Delta’s resources and how we take care of our customers, our shareholders and each other. So clearly, being a leader is not confined to those who hold a certain title.
