Delta Launches Internship Program in Ghana

First intern begins work at Delta’s Accra Office

Delta Air Lines (NYSE : DAL) today announced the start of its first Business School Internship program for Ghana, offering interns on-the-job training and valuable work experience.

“We are delighted to start this dedicated intern program here in Ghana which further emphasizes our continued and deepening involvement in this market,” said Bobby Bryan, Delta’s commercial manager West and East Africa. “The idea is to give young business students an opportunity to learn how a global company operates, build on their skills and support future career opportunities.”

Delta is developing its intern program across Western and Eastern Africa and is working with local business schools in Nigeria, Kenya and Senegal in addition to Ghana. During the one-year program, students will learn how a global business operates by working in the sales force, handling specific projects and making analytical presentations.

“We are delighted that Delta’s first Business Student Intern in Ghana is Arthur Mills,” Bryan said. “Arthur recently completed a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Ashesi University College and has now started work in Delta’s Accra office. Arthur’s year will culminate in a trip to Atlanta, where he will meet with relevant managers and take a tour of Delta’s headquarters.”

Delta currently operates daily overnight nonstop service from Accra’s Kotoka International airport to the United States, with four weekly service to New York-JFK and three weekly service to Atlanta, as well as three weekly service to Monrovia, Liberia. Delta will celebrate five years of operating from Accra later this year.
