Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Thursday, 11 October 2007

Delta Air Lines has appointed Don Bornhorst as Senior Vice President - Delta Connection, effective October 15. Bornhorst, a 16-year industry veteran, most recently served as Comairs president.

One of Deltas top priorities is improving the Delta Connection experience for our customers from onboard products and services to operational performance. Don is a proven leader with the background, focus and determination needed to unify the Delta Connection brand and improve service to a level that meets or exceeds our customers expectations, said Joe Kolshak, Deltas executive vice president of operations.

Bornhorst, 42, was named Comairs president in May 2006, after working in every major operating group at Comair. Before becoming president, he served as Comairs chief financial officer, vice president of Information Systems and senior vice president of Customers with oversight of Customer Services and In-flight.

As senior vice president of Delta Connection, Bornhorst will oversee the day-to-day operations of nine partner airlines and lead efforts to ensure Delta Connection service is seamless with mainline operations. Bornhorst replaces Wayne Aaron, who returns to his role as vice president - Strategic Planning and Business Development.

With Bornhorsts transition to Delta, Comair has tapped industry veteran and former Delta executive John Selvaggio to lead Comair. Selvaggio most recently served as the head of Deltas former low-cost unit, Song, and prior to that he served as senior vice president for Deltas Airport Customer Service division.

Selvaggio, 60, has a unique depth of regional airline expertise, including previous service as the head of U.S. Airways Express Division and president of Wings West Airlines, a predecessor to American Eagle. In 1998, Selvaggio joined Delta and coordinated the companys efforts in the acquisition of Atlantic Southeast Airlines in 1999, followed by Comair a year later.
