Delta supports reform to the Export-Import Bank’s charter to ensure U.S. airlines and our employees are not harmed by U.S. government subsidies to foreign airlines.  Delta’s concerns are specific to the Bank’s continued financing at better-than-market rates of widebody aircraft to airlines that are creditworthy or receive subsidies from their home country.

Any reauthorization of the Bank must, at a minimum, contain reforms to address this issue, as well as provide complete transparency on any financing in which the Bank participates and require it to analyze the benefits and harms of its widebody financings on U.S. airlines and our employees.

Delta stands ready to work with Congress to find solutions that don’t place any job in the U.S. at a disadvantage.
