Delta AirElite Celebrates 20 Years of Service

5th Mar 2004

  Delta AirElite Business Jets is celebrating its 20th year of providing
business aviation services. As a leading provider of private jet travel
solutions, the company continues to offer a unique blend of travel options
for its customers.
Delta AirElite began operating business jets in 1984 with the acquisition
of its first aircraft, a Learjet 25D. Today, the company operates a
diverse fleet of Bombardier Challenger, Learjet, Gulfstream and Cessna
business jets.

“In addition to our operating experience, there are many attributes that
set Delta AirElite apart from other companies in this industry,” said
Michael B. Green, president and chief executive officer, Delta AirElite
Business Jets. “Delta AirElite is the only business jet provider owned by
a major airline, the only private jet membership card provider to offer a
dedicated fleet for its members and the only private jet transportation
provider to offer premier benefits on Delta Air Lines, to name but a few.”

The company’s innovative Fleet Membership Program offers all of the
benefits of aircraft ownership, without an asset purchase, fixed costs or
long-term commitment. Members purchase 25, 50 or 100 hours of “occupied
time” in their choice of a light, midsize or large cabin served by Delta
AirElite’s fleet of dedicated jets.

For those travelers desiring to specify the type of jet they wish to fly
on, Delta AirElite has partnered with Bombardier Flexjet offering access
to the Flexjet fleet. This program allows members to purchase 25-hour
increments of “occupied” time in their choice of Bombardier Learjet 31A,
Learjet 45, Learjet 60 or Challenger 604 aircraft.

Delta AirElite also offers global charter services, which provide
on-demand access to their fleet of more than 400 aircraft, and aircraft
management services.


“The company has come a long way over the last 20 years,” said David
Siebenburgen, chairman, Delta AirElite Business Jets. “We are one of the
most experienced commercial business jet transportation providers in the
industry. The majority of our success is due to the unique service options
we can offer our customers.”

Delta AirElite Business Jets is a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Air
Lines , providing aircraft charter, aircraft management, and its
innovative Fleet Membership Program. Now in its 20th year serving business
aviation travelers, Delta AirElite is the only business jet operator owned
by a major U.S. airline. The company operates a diverse fleet of
Bombardier Challenger, Learjet, Gulfstream and Cessna Aircraft. For more
