Delta Air Lines has tapped former JetBlue executive Scott Laurence as its new vice president of network planning.
Laurence will be reporting to Joe Esposito, senior Vice President of network planning, working to “further strengthen Delta’s global network and joint venture partnerships while positioning the airline for continued success and long-term growth opportunities,” according to a statement from the carrier.
Laurence most recently spearheaded and executed the new strategic partnership between JetBlue and American Airlines.
“Scott is well-positioned and brings a tremendous wealth of experience to build on Delta’s leading global network,” Esposito said. “Combined with his innovative, strategic mindset and a spirit of servant leadership, he is a great fit for the Delta team.”
Laurence spent the last 14 years with JetBlue. He has also served in management and network strategy roles at United Airlines.
