The holidays are just around the corner, so this is a reminder that under the “FedEx Airline Employee Personal Shipping” program, Delta retirees and active employees are given a 75% reduced rate for shipping personal items. Shipments must be dropped off at any FedEx manned location to a FedEx employee, during working hours. Please remember, you MUST show them your Delta retiree badge or Delta active employee ID as they will not just accept your word you are a retiree/employee.
