Ornst, who grew up in New York and the Czech Republic, has a degree in political science from Susquehanna University. She was named one of "40 under 40 rising political stars in New York" by City and State newspaper in 2012.

"Patty's vast experience and knowledge of the aviation community within New York will help Delta maintain and deepen our excellent relationships in the state and city of New York," Grimmett said. "Her values and expertise are a perfect fit for Delta, New York's largest and fastest-growing airline."

Delta Air Lines provides service to more destinations from New York State than any other airline. As part of a $1.4 billion project to create a state-of-the-art international gateway at JFK, Delta's new Terminal 4 opened earlier this year. The airline is also investing more than $160 million to expand and update Terminals C and D at LaGuardia.  The unique Delta Shuttle product offers hourly service to Boston, Chicago (O'Hare) and Washington D.C. Delta's three metropolitan-area airports carried 23.1 million domestic and international passengers in 2012, up from 20.8 million passengers in 2011.
