Quebec – February 17th – Delta Air Lines’ (NYSE: DAL) name and logo will become part of Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport beginning Feb. 17 as the airline integrates its operations with Northwest following their merger in October of last year.
Quebec City is among the more than 200 airports worldwide – six of them in Cananda- where Delta is brandind counters, gates, kiosks and signage following the merger that made the airline the world’s largest.
In January, Delta began consolidating and re-branding Delta and Northwest airport facilities to consistently display Delta’s distinctive red, white and blue brand. Delta expects to complete re-branding in all airports throughout the United States and Canada by the end of 2009, and international locations by 2010.
“The merger of these two carriers has created the world’s largest airline and we are delighted to see our city enjoying continued service by Delta Air Lines” said Pascal Belanger, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport. Delta passengers should look for and proceed to the Delta Air Lines counters for all flights bound to Detroit’s Metropolitan Airport.
