Delta teamed up with Knicks rookie sensation Kristaps Porzingis at Chelsea Piers in New York City yesterday to celebrate the airline’s new season-long “Fly Like a Pro” promotion.

Selected season ticket holders and VIPs were able to shoot around with Porzingis; Gail Grimmett, Senior Vice President-New York, also challenged him to a hard-fought game of D-E-L-T-A.

The “Fly Like a Pro” grand prize winner and a friend will receive an all-expenses-paid trip for two courtesy of Delta Private Jets to see a Knicks road game next season. Additional prizes include signed jerseys and basketballs, 2016 game tickets, Delta flights and much more. 

“We’re not just a business in New York—we’re also passionate New Yorkers in our own right,” said Gail. “So we know how much New Yorkers love their sports, and, more importantly, how much they love their New York Knicks.”

Earlier this week, Delta announced a sponsorship with Chelsea Piers to become the official airline of New York City's renowned sports and entertainment complex, adding to its growing roster of New York sports and entertainment partnerships.

Delta is also the official airline of Madison Square Garden and the New York Knicks.
