Organizers of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show announced a two-year agreement with Delta Private Jets to be the official private carrier and presenting sponsor of the show’s Windward VIP Club.

The five-day show has about 110,000 attendees and 1,200 exhibitors from 52 countries.

“Private aviation and yachting go hand-in-hand, delivering the utmost level of service and luxury travel accommodations,” said Kenny Love, Delta Private Jets corporate strategy and business development vice president, in a statement.

The Marine Industries Association of South Florida, the group that owns FLIBS, estimates that more than 1,000 private planes land at regional base operators during the show.

Delta Private Jets, a subsidiary of Delta Air Lines, opened a maintenance, repair and overhaul facility at Sheltair Aviation at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, with a 15,000-square-foot hangar and 2,200 square feet of office space.

“Similar to the yachting industry, private aviation is known for its extraordinary luxury and personalized service, with the two industries often intersecting due to their shared clientele,” said Andrew Doole, vice president and general manager of Informa U.S. Boat Shows, the group that produces the event.
