Aeromexico and Delta Air Lines have decided to strengthen their partnership further and subsequently offer more options for travel between the United States and Mexico. Media reports said that the expanded partnership will see the launch of new Atlanta-Mexico City route soon.
According to the reports, the two airlines – Aeromexico and Delta Air Lines – are planning to make foray into new markets with the launch of five flights services. Moreover, there are also plans to upgrade aircrafts in two markets and increase frequencies in four markets during fall this year. All these will however be put into implementation after approval from the government.
It may be noted that Aeromexico and Delta Air Lines have recently signed a new Joint Cooperation Agreement aimed at further deepening mutual coordination in order to serve the customers better. The agreement mandates both the airlines to offer expanded travel options to the customers and flexible choices, while at the same time delivering on reliability and operational efficiency. With the new agreement becoming effective now the foremost benefit for the two airlines would be a significant growth in transborder seat capacity with an increase of 10 percent by 2017 end.
Media reports further stated that the transborder seat capacity is going to maintain a continuous growth even as both the airlines expand and offer combined flight offerings to the customers in 2018 and beyond. Aeromexico and Delta Air Lines have carved a niche with their expertise of serving leisure and business travel markets.
The new routes to be launched and where both Aeromexico and Delta Air Lines would be cooperating with each other include Portland-Mexico City, Seattle-Mexico City, Los Angeles-Leon, Atlanta-Queretaro, and Atlanta-Merida. Some markets being currently served will also be expanded. A second daily flight service will be launched between Los Cabos and Los Angeles. The frequency on New York JFK-Cancun route will also be increased with the launch of a third daily service. Apart from these, both Leon and Guadalajara being currently served from Atlanta will also see the launch of a second daily service each.
