Delta Air Lines began as a Georgia-based crop dusting operation in 1924 and did not carry passengers until 1929. The current network of regional, national and international flights carries approximately 165 million passengers each year. In order to grow, the company merged with other airlines, including Chicago and Southern Air Lines in 1953, Northeast Airlines in 1972, Western Airlines in 1987, Pan American World Airways in 1991 and Northwest Airlines in 2010. Delta is the oldest airline still operating in the United States.
