On November 5, 2012, executives at Delta Air Lines announced that the Commercial Headquarters for the company’s Latin America and the Caribbean region will be moving from Atlanta to Sao Paulo, Brazil. Effective January 1, 2013, Nicolas Ferri, vice president — Latin America and the Caribbean, will transfer to Sao Paulo to lead the commercial activities reporting to Steve Sear, Delta’s senior vice president – Global Sales.
Ferri’s relocation to Brazil makes Delta Air Lines the only U.S. carrier to have a vice president residing in Latin America. The company has placed particular consideration in servicing the needs of Latin customers investing $3 billion in its products and services.
“Delta is proud to relocate its regional headquarters to Sao Paulo. Our goal of becoming the best U.S. carrier in the region has many elements. We are convinced having our regional headquarters will bring additional focus and benefits to our customers, partners and employees throughout Latin America and the Caribbean,” said Ferri. “We continue to demonstrate our commitment to the region and this move gives Delta as a U.S. carrier a unique perspective and allows us to participate in the day to day affairs of aviation industry in the region and being part of its evolution.”
