From crop dusting to global air travel

by The 100 Companies

In 1925, Huff Daland Dusters, Delta’s predecessor, was founded in Macon as the first commercial agricultural flying company and crop dusted everywhere from Florida to Arkansas and California to Mexico. Throughout the next several years, Delta (renamed as such in 1928) served the U.S. Postal Service, assisted in war efforts in the 40s and began cargo service.

In 1941, Delta headquarters moved to Atlanta where over the next years, the company started its first international routes; introduced its signature red, white and blue triangle logo; and became the impressive airline we know it as today serving over 200 million a year.
