Summer travel is known for being busy but this year on June 30th, Delta transported 624,000 customers --- 6,500 more than the previous one-day record. 

“Summer is our World Series,” said Dave Holtz, Delta’s Senior Vice President—Operations and Customer Center. “Our employees are knocking it out of the park. We’re getting our customers to their vacation spots, connecting people with their families and providing very reliable business travel.  We are busier, yet more reliable this summer than we ever have, delivering upon our promise to be the most reliable airline in industry.”

While many people assume the busiest days of the travel season fall near Thanksgiving, the truth of the matter is eight of the 10 planned busiest operational days fall in July for Delta.
