  • Declaring our fifth annual dividend increase beginning in the September quarter, demonstrating our conviction in the durability and sustainability of the Delta business model.  The September quarter dividend of $0.35 per share, an increase of 15 percent over previous levels, will be payable on August 16, 2018 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on July 26, 2018.
  • Thanking Georgia Governor Deal for his suspension of the state sales tax on jet fuel, which helps ensure Georgia remains competitive and continues to be a business environment where Delta can grow its services.
