Our Culture

“We’re working to restore our company as the greatest airline in the world and can only do that with employees that are as diverse as the customers we serve. So we must work to recruit, develop, retain and engage the very best people – those with unique perspectives and ways of thinking who can help us become the global leader we’re poised to be. Leaders of the company are then accountable for cultivating an inclusive work environment that helps unleash all of our employees’ potential, celebrating everything that a dynamic workforce has to offer."

– Doug Parker, Chairman and CEO
