Delta, in partnership with its wholly owned subsidiary, Delta Private Jets, initiated a program to schedule seven flights on Tuesday evening from Atlanta to New York-JFK, Washington-Dulles, Los Angeles, Houston-Hobby, Miami, Chicago-O’Hare and Dallas-Fort Worth.

Jets from throughout the DPJ fleet were made available for the flights, from large aircraft to light jets.

Delta reached out to customers in various situations, including its most frequent fliers, corporate travelers and customers flying for leisure.

As part of the experience, Delta provided Porsches to transfer customers from the concourses at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to the Delta Private Jets aircraft through its pioneering partnership with the automotive manufacturer.
