Syracuse takes flight with Delta Air Lines

New York-based Delta Air Lines has reached a deal to become the official airline of Syracuse University Athletics.

The Syracuse football team, which claimed a four-way share of the 2012 Big East Conference ahead of its move to the Atlantic Coast Conference for 2013, will also use Delta Air Lines as its charter carrier for the forthcoming season.

Under the agreement, Delta will be featured on gameday signage at the Carrier Dome stadium and sponsor in-game promotions during American football, basketball and lacrosse games.

Delta has marketing relationships with eight National Collegiate Athletic Association members in addition to Syracuse – Boston College, Brigham Young, Duke, Georgia Tech, University of Georgia, University of Michigan, University of Minnesota and University of North Carolina.

It also serves as the charter carrier for 41 NCAA football programs.
