Bucks and Delta Airlines Partner to Reward Fans Wearing Bucks Gear in the Airport During Playoffs
The Milwaukee Bucks today announced a new partnership with Delta Airlines to help get passengers in the spirit of the NBA Playoffs with the Bucks hosting the Toronto Raptors in Milwaukee for Games 3 and 4 of their First Round series this weekend. For the next three days, Delta gate agents at Mitchell International Airport will allow anyone wearing Bucks gear to receive priority boarding along with premium cabin and diamond medallion passengers.
“This is a terrific partnership we’ve created along with Dion Petty and his Delta team in Milwaukee to help spread the excitement of the NBA Playoffs throughout the city and into the skies,” Bucks Chief Operating Officer Mike McCarthy. “There’s a definite buzz in the air surrounding the team and these playoffs, and we look forward to seeing even more Bucks gear in the air now, too.”
In addition to priority boarding, Delta gate agents have also received a selection of Bucks playoff gear to distribute to passengers flying out of Milwaukee this weekend through Bucks trivia games or random acts of kindness.
