Delta AirElite celebrates 20 years of charter service
Delta AirElite Business Jets is celebrating its 20th year of business aircraft charter and management, and remains the only business jet provider owned by a major airline. The Cincinnati-based company has been in business since 1984, originally as part of regional airline carrier Comair and then as a subsidiary of Delta Air Lines following its acquisition of Comair in January 2000. The business aviation company’s first aircraft was a Learjet 25D. Today, the company operates a diverse fleet of business jets, including six that are owned or leased and 16 managed aircraft. Another nearly 400 aircraft are available through selected operators, including Bombardier Flexjet.
