Delta Air Lines, Inc. began trading on the NYSE on April 26 on a when-issued basis under the ticker symbol “DAL.WI”. Regular way trading began May 3, 2007 under the ticker symbol “DAL”.

To commemorate Delta’s emergence from Chapter 11 and the relisting of its common stock on the NYSE, the company is participated in The Opening and Closing Bell ceremonies with the NYSE.
