Delta Air Lines, Inc. was incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware. The Company operates as an airline, providing scheduled air transportation for passengers and cargo throughout the United States and around the world. On October 29, 2008, a subsidiary of the Company merged with and into Northwest Airlines Corporation ‘Northwest’. As a result of this merger, Northwest and its subsidiaries, including Northwest Airlines, Inc. ‘NWA’, became wholly-owned subsidiaries of Delta. The Company’s global route network is centered on the hub system. It operates at airports in Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Memphis, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York-JFK, Salt Lake City, Amsterdam and Tokyo-Narita. Each of these hub operations includes flights that gather and distribute traffic from markets in the geographic region surrounding the hub to domestic and international cities and to other hubs. The Company and NWA both have frequent flyer programs, which are designed to retain and increase traveler loyalty by offering incentives to customers to increase travel on each airline. Delta’s SkyMiles(r) program allows program members to earn mileage for travel awards by flying on it. Mileage credit might also be earned by using certain services offered by program participants, such as credit card companies, hotels, car rental agencies, telecommunication services and internet services.

The Company’s maintenance, repair and overhaul ‘MRO’ operations known as Delta TechOps is an airline MRO in North America with state-of-the-art facilities worldwide. In addition to providing maintenance and engineering support for the combined Delta and NWA fleets of nearly 800 aircraft, Delta TechOps serves more than 125 aviation and airline customers from around the world.
