Before flying passengers around the globe, Delta Airlines protected the nation’s crops by dusting them with fertilizer from their aircraft. From these noble beginnings in 1924, Delta has gone on to fly to over 357 destinations worldwide in more than 66 countries. On average, around 150 million passengers use Delta for their holidays and business trips every year!
