Delta named World’s Most Admired Airline by Fortune
Delta has been named the World’s Most Admired Airline by Fortune, with the company ranking No. 1 across the board in the industry for values including innovation and people management.
Delta also rated higher than any other airline on the overall list of Most Admired Companies, climbing to No. 12 this year.
“I couldn’t be more proud of the Delta team of being named on Fortune’s list of Most Admired Companies for the 10th year in a row,” Delta Chief Executive Officer, Ed Bastian, said.
“This award is a huge testament and recognition of all their hard work, their dedication and their success. It’s no surprise that they are consistently recognised among the best.”
In addition to Delta’s evolving brand experiences, he said the airline had been consistently recognised for its operational reliability, reflecting the airline’s operational complexity and the exemplary work of Delta people to achieve on-time performance while limiting the impact of disruption on customers.
Fortune collaborated with Korn Ferry on this survey of corporate reputation. The survey began with a universe of about 1,500 candidates: the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue, along with non-U. S. companies in the Fortune Global 500 database that have revenues of $10 billion or more.
That assortment was winnowed to the highest-revenue companies in each industry, a total of 645 in 27 countries.
The top-rated companies were picked from that pool of 645; the executives who voted work at the companies in that group.
