Delta Air Lines
Delta Air Lines has been a fantastic partner of The Trust over the past three years, supporting thousands of young people to change their lives for the better and set up in business.
Delta’s support forms part of the airline’s commitment to give back to the communities it serves.
The partnership with The Prince’s Trust is one of Delta Air Lines’ leading Community Engagement projects in the UK and as such, has been added to the airline’s Community Engagement partners list of philanthropic organisations and causes that are supported by Delta and its 80,000 employees.
Delta has shown its commitment in a variety of ways, including sponsoring the Rising Star Award at our Prince’s Trust Awards. The award recognises young people who, despite having faced substantial personal obstacles, are in sustainable employment as a result of one of The Prince’s Trust’s life-changing programmes.

Delta has shown tremendous support for young entrepreneurs and helping young people set up in business through supporting our Prince’s Trust Tomorrow’s Store, which is stocked with original gifts, jewellery, clothing, art and homeware created by innovative young entrepreneurs we’ve helped to set up in business. As our Tomorrow’s Store moves online, we are delighted that Delta is continuing its support of young entrepreneurs by helping us activate Tomorrow’s Store’s online platform.
We are also thrilled to share the exciting news that Delta is our fantastic Headline Sponsor of Palace to Palace 2018! We are delighted to have its incredible support of our flagship cycle challenge from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle. We are looking forward to seeing more than 4,000 riders taking on the iconic route, and raise over £600,000 to change thousands of young lives. Through Delta’s support of Palace to Palace, we will be able to showcase many fantastic Tomorrow’s Store Online businesses and young entrepreneur stories throughout the year as well as on the day at our special pop up Tomorrow’s Store village. Look out for exciting activations to come!
Beyond this, Delta has opened up all the opportunities a career in industries such as aviation and engineering could involve, with unique experience days with the airline’s teams at Heathrow and Edinburgh to teach young people about the exciting careers they can pursue in aviation
