Delta Issues Statement on Export-Import Bank

Apr 8, 2014

ATLANTA, April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) issued the following statement on today's panel discussion in Washington, D.C., on reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank of the United States.

"Much like the Bank's review of widebody aircraft transactions, today's panel discussion on reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank of the United States does not consider or address the harm Ex-Im financings for widebody aircraft do to U.S. airlines and their employees. Delta continues to urge members of Congress to enact reforms that will ensure that the Bank provides support to U.S. manufacturers without damaging the ability of U.S. airlines and their employees to compete in the global marketplace. Delta, along with the Air Line Pilots Association, encourages the U.S. House Financial Services Committee to enact reforms in the 2014 Export Import Bank reauthorization that will protect U.S. airlines and their employees from continued, Bank-induced, harm."

Delta Air Lines and the Delta Connection carriers offer service to nearly 370 destinations on six continents. For more information visit
