'Business as Usual' at Delta AirElite
Airline travelers on Delta, Northwest and other airlines operating under bankruptcy protection might face longer lines, delays and fuller and less frequent flights, but it’s “business as usual” at Delta’s business jet charter arm, Delta AirElite, according to a spokesman. “There will be no affect on our ability to serve our charter, membership or aircraft management customers,” he said. “We remain fully committed to meeting our customers’ travel needs.” The company, a “profitable subsidiary of Delta Air Lines,” operates 19 managed and owned business jets based at various locations in the U.S. Delta also operates the Delta AirElite Jet Center at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. It too “will continue as a full-service FBO,” said the spokesman.
