Delta Air Lines hosted the 5th annual Delta Festival Shuttle from Los Angeles to Austin for the South by Southwest conference on Friday. Customers, including representatives from Hulu, NBCUniversal, Two Bit Circus, FabFitFun, LinkedIn, Patreon and investment firms such as BDMI joined Delta for a curated flight experience that included the chance to network with other tech and entertainment industry executives as well as perks such as pre-flight breakfast and cocktails, free checked bag, expedited check-in and security, a gift bag and complimentary Silver Medallion Status through 2019. Talent such as Ravi Patel, Patrick Schwarzenegger and Hannah Hart, also joined Delta for the flight to Austin.
Delta launched the festival shuttle concept to engage L.A.'s influential tech and entertainment and production communities in a new, thoughtful and relevant way, and the airline has since hosted 19 festival shuttles to major industry festivals and thought leadership conferences. Delta's support of the tech and E&P communities also includes providing nonstop service to top industry destinations, exclusive partnerships that provide in-flight content on Delta Studio, recognizing the industry's rising stars through the Delta Ones to Watch program, partnering with organizations like the Motion Picture & Television Fund that help E&P professionals in times of need, and curating travel experiences like the Delta Festival Shuttle.
