Employee uniforms to include Sign Language option
The language bars will indicate which front-line team members are able to communicate in 300+ different sign languages. We are proud to be the first U.S. airline to offer this option; and with this improvement, our customers and qualified employees will immediately be able to notice when they hold sign language as a common connection.
“Our mission is to connect the world, which starts with making travel easier for all people,” said Delta CEO Ed Bastian. “It’s a small step on our journey, but a powerful change as we seek to make the world a smaller, more inclusive place.”
This initiative came to life as a direct result of feedback and input from our customers, employees and Advisory Board on Disability. You can expect to see uniformed employees sporting the new language bars later this fall.
