New York, NY, October 18, 2018 – The Madison Square Garden Company (NYSE: MSG) and Delta Private Jets announced today a multi-year partnership that names Delta Private Jets as the exclusive naming partner of Madison Square Garden’s Event Level Suites.

Delta Private Jets Event Level Suites, available for NY Rangers, NY Knicks, concerts and select special events, are luxurious private spaces on the ice or court level with premium menu offerings from signature chefs and sommeliers, in-suite bar, private suite attendant, VIP entrance with ticket concierge and more. This marks the first-ever sports and entertainment arena partnership for Delta Private Jets, with the deal providing extensive branding, associated signage and in-suite marketing across all 20 Delta Private Jets Event Level Suites, as well as the opportunity to create custom offers for suiteholders.
Delta and MSG renewed and expanded their 10-year marketing partnership in 2017, solidifying New York’s largest carrier as the Official Airline and Private Jet Carrier of Madison Square Garden, the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden, Beacon Theatre, the New York Knicks, the New York Rangers, the Montefiore Concert Series at Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, the Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes and the Boston Calling Music Festival. Delta will continue to be the entitlement partner of the Delta Sky360 Club, and LED messaging will be on display during all Knicks and Rangers games.
