Effective November 1, Delta Air Lines has appointed Nicolas Ferri as the new Vice President for Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India (EMEAI).
Based in Paris, Ferri will head key strategic commercial and customer service initiatives in the region, collaborating with Delta’s European partners Air France, KLM, and Virgin Atlantic, as the airline is set to rebuild its trans-Atlantic network.
“Delta is the preferred carrier across the Atlantic, and Nicolas’ vast international and alliances experience will be vital to our continued success as demand picks up and we reopen travel corridors across the region,” commented Alain Bellemare, Delta’s President – International. “With customers returning to the skies, we look ahead to 2022 and the rebuilding of our international portfolio with optimism.”
Before his appointment, Ferri served as CCO at Delta’s partner, Aeromexico. In this role, he led the company’s Revenue Management, Network Planning, Corporate Strategy, Distribution, Global Sales, Alliances, e-commerce, Customer Care, and Loyalty functions.
“It’s a pivotal moment joining the EMEAI team and leading our regional efforts as the U.S. reopens to international travel,” added Ferri. “I’m looking forward to meeting our customers and working closely with our partners to grow our business and build on Delta/Air France/KLM/Virgin Atlantic’s leading transatlantic joint venture.”
Having lived and worked in ten countries across Europe, Latin America, North America, and Asia, Ferri brings broad experience. He has been with Delta for ten years, in leadership roles across the airline’s international and commercial divisions – including Vice President, Latin America, and Vice President Alliances Americas, where he was responsible for the company’s profitability in the region and the integration between Delta and its alliance partners across the Americas.
