Delta says it wants to be a part of future consolidation in the airline industry.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Atlanta-based airline’s top executive told an investors conference Wednesday that the company needs to be “flexible enough to participate” in “future opportunities”.

Since a merger with Northwest Airlines two years ago, Delta has brought its financial books back to health. Its operating income has improved by more than $2-and-a-half billion dollars in the past year.

The most recent merger in the industry is the combination of United and Continental airlines. And there are rumors of other deals.
