ATLANTA, Nov. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) tonight will welcome 100 employees into the ranks of its Chairman's Club, the airline's most prestigious honor which recognizes employees who embody Delta values and are distinguished by their contributions and exceptional service to customers and community.

"This has been a great year for Delta thanks to the exceptional performance of Delta people worldwide," said Richard Anderson, Delta's chief executive officer. "We say it all the time here -- Delta people cannot be replicated, and our Chairman's Club honorees represent the best of what Delta has to offer."

More than 10,000 Delta people from every division in the airline's worldwide operations were nominated by their colleagues this year and underwent a rigorous selection process for induction into Chairman's Club.

This year's honorees represent 30 cities in five countries and on average have 22 years of service at Delta. The most senior honoree has worked at Delta for 43 years. Honorees are heavily involved in fundraising efforts in their communities through Delta's Force for Global Good initiative and support many charitable causes.

The annual Chairman's Club gala is a celebratory evening that allows Delta's senior leaders to individually recognize honorees for their service to the airline. Honorees walk the red carpet across Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta to the cheers of their colleagues before the ceremony begins inside the Fox.

The Chairman's Club is part of Delta's commitment to recognizing the people who care for its customers each day and continuing to build a great place to work.
