Prix d’Honneur du Jury - Delta AirLines

Beyond all awards, there are some companies who make it possible for all the others to grow and thrive between the two sides of the Atlantic. This award recognizes the enablers of French-American trade, investments and relationships.

Delta Air Lines is the U.S. global airline leader in products, services, innovation, reliability and customer experience.

Powered by its 80,000 people around the world, Delta continues to invest billions in its people, delivering a world-class experience. Delta serves nearly 200 million people every year, taking customers across its industry-leading global network to more than 300 destinations in over 50 countries.

Delta Air Lines launched a direct flight from RDU to Paris in 2015.

Opening this flight has been a game changer for FDI in North Carolina and notably a really powerful argument in convincing French companies looking to do business in the USA to consider NC.

The network of French chambers is now more apt to recommend NC as an option and in the last years many French businesses have considered opening a subsidiary in NC or doing business with North Carolina companies.

Our most recent example is Cellectis, a gene therapy company which chose Raleigh to open a manufacturing facility in 2018.
