Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) and Aeroméxico (BMV: AEROMEX) today accepted the final order issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation granting them antitrust immunity and allowing the airlines to establish a joint cooperation agreement. This historic agreement will establish the largest transborder alliance between Mexico and the United States, expand competition and benefit customers of both airlines.
“Together, Delta and Aeroméxico are stronger in the U.S.-Mexico market than either airline can be on its own,” said Delta CEO Ed Bastian. “The partnership will make it possible for us to offer customers more flights to more destinations, with more choices every time someone travels across the border. We will offer industry-leading reliability, great service and an unmatched array of options.”
