Delta Air Lines is raising $9 billion in an enormous financial obligation sale backed by its regular leaflet program, the most recent big offering by an airline company coming to grips with the coronavirus pandemic’s effect on travel need.

The quantity is almost 40% more than the $6.5 billion Delta stated previously today it planned to raise. The Atlanta-based provider is burning about $27 million a day as the pandemic continues to sap travel need, CFO Paul Jacobson stated at a financier conference recently.

Airlines are progressively relying on their commitment programs to raise money after profits from flight dropped greatly this year. United Airlines is utilizing its MileagePlus program to back brand-new financial obligation, while American Airlines prepares to utilize its AAdvantage program as security for a federal government loan. 

Delta shares lost 1.8% to end the day at $33.96.
