Atlantic Southeast Airlines

Atlantic Southeast Airlines was founded in 1979 in Atlanta, Ga., by three determined entrepreneurs who dreamed of providing convenient, safe and frequent air transportation between outlying destinations and Atlanta. From its first flight aboard a 19-passenger Twin Otter between Columbus, Ga., and Atlanta to today, ASA has enjoyed tremendous fortune, growth and success.

In 1984, ASA was selected by Delta Air Lines as one of the first partners in the Delta Connection program. Then, following 20 years of operation and 15 years of partnership with the mainline carrier, ASA was acquired by Delta in 1999. The acquisition by Delta marked the beginning of a period of unprecedented growth for ASA, as the airline grew its fleet by more than 100 aircraft and its employee base by more than 3,000 team members.
