This March, Delta will celebrate 75 years since the company moved its headquarters from Monroe, La., to Atlanta in 1941. The move launched a partnership between the airline and the Atlanta region that continues today.

Delta was selected by the Atlanta History Center based on feedback provided from the public for recommended items to be included in the exhibit. 


As Delta is currently celebrating 75 years of flight attendant service on board aircraft, it is fitting that the item on display is the colorful uniform worn by flight attendants during the summers of 1969 and 1970.


“As Atlanta’s hometown airline, we are honored to be acknowledged as one of the key elements that defines this dynamic city,” said Allison Ausband, Senior Vice President – In-Flight Service. “The flight attendant uniform on display truly represents our 80,000 worldwide employees, and the work they do each day to provide our customers with exceptional customer service on land and in the sky.”


The “Atlanta in 50 Objects” exhibit runs through July 10, 2016.
