The cross-border alliance connecting airline networks between Aeroméxico and Delta has taken major strides in service improvements, while growing the number routes that have served more than 28 million passengers since 2017.

“Since the establishment of the Joint Collaboration Agreement in May 2017, the airlines have transported more than 28 million customers and have operated 250,000 flights between the US and Mexico. By May 2022, partners will operate more than 4,300 flights, a 96 percent recovery against the same period in 2019,” reads Aeroméxico’s press release.

Delta and Aeroméxico have registered over 580 million km flown, an equivalent to 14,663 trips around the world and more than 250,000 flights. The alliance offers 43 flights between Mexico and the US, with 35 weekly flights from Los Angeles to Mexico City and 28 weekly operations from New York to Mexico City.

“We are proud of how our innovative Joint Collaboration Agreement (JCA) has transformed the cross-border market of the US and Mexico by generating significant benefits for customers and a network of broader routes. As we celebrate the success of our partnership with Aeroméxico, we do so with the ongoing commitment to offer our customers the exceptional experience they deserve,” said Perry Cantarutti, Senior Vice President of Alliances, Delta.

The alliance has since developed products and integral services to improve passenger experience, using SkyTeam technology for digital check-ins through existing Delta and Aeroméxico apps or websites, free on-board messaging via Wi-Fi and consistent checked and carry-on baggage policies.

Its alliance with Delta allows Aeroméxico greater access to the US from its operations center in Mexico City through the former’s hubs in Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles, Minneapolis - St. Paul, New York-JFK, Salt Lake City and Seattle.

“This year started with wonderful news. Gradually, we continue to recover the dynamic that we had achieved before the pandemic. We will operate more than 4,300 flights in May, which represents a 96 percent recovery compared to the same period in 2019. At the same time, our network to the main beach destinations in Mexico has fully recovered, with growth capacity of 16 percent compared to 2019,” said Giancarlo Mulinelli Avilés, Senior Vice President of Global Sales, Aeroméxico.
