Delta Air Lines Brings Spirit of Delta Aircraft to Boston


Spirit of Delta will fly around Beantown one more time for customers, employees and local charity

In 1982, Delta employees, retirees and friends began collecting donations to purchase a plane for Delta in support of the company in the midst of a weak economy and poor economic performance. The Spirit of Delta, as it was later named, has come to be a symbol for Delta’s heritage.

The Spirit of Delta was Delta’s first Boeing 767-200 aircraft and was purchased for $30 million.

Delta is bringing the Spirit of Delta to Boston as it embarks on its final tour through the Delta system as a thank you to Delta employees for all of their hard work and dedication. The aircraft will conduct a “circle flight” with employees, customers and volunteers from an important local charity for Delta, the American Red Cross.
