Delta’s flights have been linking travelers up between popular tourist and business spots and the airline’s all-encompassing route system in the U.S. and around the world.
For the past 25 years, Delta has been on a journey through Central America, making strong connections with the locals and partners along the way. People have been able to explore the area and the tourism industry has been booming ever since.
“We thank our customers for choosing Delta, and we’re grateful to our teams for helping to make these routes a success,” said Agustin Durand, Delta’s General Manager of Sales for Central America and the Caribbean.
“Aside from providing excellent service to our customers, Delta’s people in Central America have volunteered for and supported organizations and causes such as Junior Achievement Americas, Desarrollo en Movimiento Guatemala and the Pacific Run in Guanacaste, among others. We look forward to continuing to play an important role in the development of Central America as a region.”
