KLM and Delta Air Lines begin Codesharing on Flights in Europe and the US

Travel News Asia Thursday, 20 July 2006

SkyTeam carriers KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Delta Air Lines start codesharing  this week to destinations from their Amsterdam, Atlanta and New York JFK hubs, following approval by the U.S. Department of Transportation earlier this year.

Initially, KLM plans to codeshare on Delta flights to 14 U.S. destinations from Atlanta (Birmingham, Nashville, Charlotte, Charleston, Daytona Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Greenville, Kahului (Hawaii), Kansas City, Miami, Orlando, Raleigh, San Antonio and Tampa), as well as between New Yorks JFK and Atlanta. KLM intends to grow the number of codeshare services across Deltas network.

Delta plans to codeshare on KLM flights to 10 European destinations via Amsterdam (Stockholm, Warsaw, Hamburg, Oslo, Bucharest, Gothenburg, Hanover, Nuremberg, Birmingham and Helsinki). Delta intends to grow its codeshare services across KLMs network, pending foreign government approvals.

Arend de Jong, KLMs senior vice president Network said, Our ability to add codes on Delta flights complements our existing codeshare services with our other US SkyTeam partners Northwest and Continental. This gives our customers even greater flexibility and options as Delta serves many unique destinations and offers strong connection opportunities.

Since September 2004 members of the Air France KLM Flying Blue program can earn mileage credit on all Delta coded flights. In addition, Flying Blue members may redeem their earned miles for travel on all Delta operated flights. Members of Deltas SkyMiles program can also earn mileage credit when traveling on all KLM coded flights. Conversely, SkyMiles members may redeem their earned miles for travel on all KLM operated flights.
