- Delta Airline Flew 17.7 Million Passengers in June
Delta said it flew more customers in June than any other month in the company’s history, with nearly 17.7 million people flying on mainline and Delta Connection flights around the world.
The airline said it also ended the quarter with a record 50 million customers flown in the three months from April to June.
According to the airline, while June 30, 2017 still holds the record for most customers flown on a single day at more than 646,000, the Friday before the 4th of July, 2018 holiday was not far behind with just a thousand fewer customers flown.
It added that June was a busy month, racking up six of the top 10 consolidated passenger days of all time.
“We have made a commitment to our customers to be a reliability leader, delivering a safe on-time product and the 80,000 employees of Delta are doing just that. We are seeing customers fly Delta in record numbers this summer and it is a resounding testament to the hard work and focus of our employees,” the Delta’s Senior Vice President, Operations and Customer Centre, Dave Holtz, said.
