Delta was first founded by Huff Daland Dusters in Macon, GA, but not so long after it was founded, the headquarters was moved to Monroe, LA. During that time, Delta was the only company that is owned by private sector that operated 31 planes and offered the furthest flying destinations. In 1927, Peru was offered by Huff Daland to provide a service for international mail and route for passengers in South America. CE Woolman was the one who renamed the company into Delta Air Service. The Delta word was meant to honor the Delta of Mississippi where the airplane served its services.
By the year of 1929, it was the first time for Delta to flight over a new route with passengers, from Dallas, Texas to Jackson, Miss. It carried a pilot and five passengers. As time goes by, the company started to expand its service and route, like the one that happened in the 1930s, where it serviced Atlanta for the first time. In the same year, it changed its name into Delta Airlines. In the 1940s, the headquarters was moved to another place: Atlanta. Some other things were also done during this period: put stewardesses abroad, flew cargos and offered coach class which was provided between Miami and Chicago.
