Amtrak, the operator of most of the United States’ passenger rail services, announced the appointment of Richard Anderson to the position of chief executive officer.

Anderson is the former CEO of Delta Air Lines.

The railroad’s current CEO, Wick Moorman, will serve as co-CEO along with Anderson until the end of the year. Anderson is expected to start at Amtrak on July 12.

“It is an honor to join Amtrak at a time when passenger rail service is growing in importance in America,“ Anderson said in a statement.

Anderson served as Delta’s CEO from 2007 to 2016. He also served as CEO of Northwest Airlines from 2001 to 2004 and, before that, worked at Continental Airlines.
