Reporting directly to Joe Esposito, Senior Vice President – Network Planning, Scott will work to further strengthen Delta's global network and joint venture partnerships while positioning the airline for continued success and long-term growth opportunities.
With more than two decades of airline industry experience, Laurence's accomplished track record includes multiple senior leadership roles at JetBlue Airways, where he has served as head of revenue and planning since 2019.
