Delta Named LA28 Inaugural Founding Partner

With a shared vision for Los Angeles’ future, Delta Air Lines and LA28 announced their partnership in March 2020, making Delta the inaugural founding partner of the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Los Angeles.

“Delta is in the business of connecting people, and nothing brings the world together quite like the Olympic and Paralympic Games,” said Delta CEO Ed Bastian. “The dreams and big ideas born in Los Angeles inspire us to imagine a better future. Partnering with LA28 is an investment in LA’s future and a commitment to work together to create a more connected, equitable and sustainable world.”

Delta is deeply committed to the people of Los Angeles and is making significant strides to support the future of LA. Delta and LA28 share a common dedication to innovation and possibility and have created a collaborative partnership that both honors the Olympic and Paralympic Games and celebrates the human spirit.

“Delta embodies the spirit and strength of the Los Angeles Games, and we are proud they are taking this journey with us as an early and committed partner to the Olympic and Paralympic movement,” said LA28 Chairperson Casey Wasserman. “Athletes from more than 200 nations and all corners of this country will descend on Los Angeles in 2028. We embrace Delta’s passion and dedication to connect all of these dreams and stories in the years to come.”

LA28 is proud to welcome Delta to the Los Angeles Games. Delta is a past sponsor of the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta and the 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. Delta’s partnership also includes access to NBCUniversal’s Olympic and Paralympic media platforms.

“The Olympics have the power to bring audiences together in a way that no other event can,” said NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell. “Delta’s unprecedented access to the Games across all platforms truly represents the future of advertising.”

Delta has a deep commitment to the city of Los Angeles and is investing almost $2 billion to build the terminal of the future at LAX.
