UNDATED (AP) -- Delta Air Lines shareholders gave the go-ahead to the company's purchase of Northwest Airlines by approving the issuance of new stock as part of the transaction.

Thursday's vote came at a meeting near Atlanta. Earlier in the day, Northwest shareholders approved the combination during a meeting in New York.

The deal still requires Justice Department approval.

Delta has a hub at Salt Lake City International Airport.
