Delta named official airline of Washington Nationals

Delta has signed a new five-year sponsorship agreement to be the Official Airline and Official Private Jet Carrier of the Washington Nationals.

Under Delta´s new agreement with the Nationals, the airline will fly the team to and from every away game.

Delta´s signature presence at the park will also include sponsorship of the Delta Sky360 Club, a branded hospitality experience within Nationals Park and premium section of branded seating behind home plate; and permanent signage on the outfield wall, as well as home-plate, baseline rotational, out-of-town scoreboard and LED signage.

With the addition of the Washington Nationals, Delta now sponsors nearly half of Major League Baseball´s 30 teams, more than any other airline.

Delta and the Washington Nationals will celebrate their new partnership over the course of the season´s upcoming opening week. The team´s popular mascots, the Racing Presidents, will appear at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport on April 4 to reprise their roles in this announcement video.
