In 2015, Delta and the Seahawks celebrated the extension of their sponsorship and Delta's status as Official Airline of the Seattle Seahawks. Delta provides charter service for the team to and from each road game. Delta is also represented at CenturyLink Field with a wraparound entitlement space and the Delta Sky360 Club, which spans the entire Club Level at CenturyLink Field. The airline also supports the team's five-state, 48-station Delta Air Lines Radio Network.
12status is an extension of the airline's You Can't Stop Seattle brand campaign, which reveres Seattleites for their ideas and ambition and celebrates the momentum of the city while telling the story of how Delta helps fuel Seattle's pursuits. It celebrates Delta's relationships with the city's beloved, local teams – including the Seahawks – as well as its support of community organizations close to the hearts of Delta people. You Can't Stop Seattle represents Delta's significant investments in Seattle, which have driven changes across the competitive landscape – from product enhancements, to facility improvements, to financial benefits and community investment.
