Delta Restarting Aeromexico Codeshare Flights

On 29 December 2010, Delta Air Lines will reinstate codeshare flights operated by SkyTeam partner Aeromexico following the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) decision to upgrade to Category 1 the rating of Mexico's federal civil aviation authority. This rating is required to allow codesharing by any U.S.-based airline on another international airline's flights.

Flights will be available for purchase on 26 December 2010 through all Delta ticketing channels.

The reinstated codesharing will connect Delta customers between 20 Mexican and nine U.S. airports on more than 125 Aeromexico and Aeromexico Connect flights. Reinstated codeshare cities include Acapulco, Campeche, Durango, Tampico, Veracruz, Morelia, La Paz, Merida, Chihuahua and Los Mochis.

"Delta and Aeromexico offer one of the most comprehensive networks between the United States and Mexico and we are pleased to be able to reinstate our full codeshare network with Mexico's leading airline," said Christophe Didier, Delta's staff vice president of Sales and Affairs in Latin America and Caribbean. "Our customers will soon be able to benefit from the same seamless ticketing and connections between Delta and Aeromexico flights they have long enjoyed."

Delta removed its two letter "DL" code from Aeromexico flights earlier this year after the FAA downgraded the oversight rating of Mexico's civil aviation authority to a Category 2. The change temporarily prohibited U.S. airlines from offering codeshare service on any airline overseen by Mexican authorities. On 1 December 2010, the FAA announced that Mexico's civil aviation authority had regained full compliance.

Aeromexico, like Delta, is a founding member of the SkyTeam global airline alliance.
