Bakk to Delta Air Lines: You can always come home

 

Senate DFL Caucus Leader Tom Bakk is encouraging Delta Air Lines to move its corporate headquarters to Minnesota, following a $50 million tax break on jet fuel that would benefit the airline headquartered in Georgia. Delta Air Lines merged with Minnesota-grown Northwest Airlines in 2008. His statement comes on the same day that Minnesota was named the by U.S. News and World Report.

 

“Delta, you can always come home. Georgia Republicans are threatening a Delta-supported tax exemption on jet fuel. In 2013, Minnesota passed jet fuel tax reforms that would benefit Delta. There are considerable savings waiting for you here in the #2 Best State in the Nation,” Bakk said. “As the former home of Northwest Airlines, Minnesota would welcome your return.”

 

Minnesota Nice, in this case, extends to airlines with local roots.
