For the second consecutive year, Delta Cargo has been awarded Cargo Airline of the Year at the Atlanta Cargo Awards. The annual award is based on the most tonnage handled at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.


Delta handled a total of 134,000 tons at Atlanta, making it the airport’s top carrier for 2016. October 2016 was the month with the highest tonnage at 13,000 tons.


“Delta is committed to growing the communities it serves and our home city of Atlanta where we work with Hartsfield-Jackson to strengthen this important cargo aviation hub,” said Eric Wilson, Managing Director – Delta Cargo Global Sales. “We are honored to receive this recognition for the hard work of the entire Delta Cargo and ACS teams. Our strong service performance improvements are also being noted by our customers and are helping to drive this additional recognition of our employee’s efforts.”
