SkyTeam carriers Delta Air Lines and Aeromexico have applied to the US Department of Transportation (DOT) to expand their existing codeshare agreement to cover more US-Mexico transborder markets.
In the application, the airlines request to place Aeromexico's code on 13 of Delta's routes: Columbus-Cancun, Detroit-Cozumel, Detroit-Puerto Vallarta, Detroit-San Jose del Cabo, Indianapolis-Cancun, Milwaukee-Cancun, Minneapolis/St. Paul-Cozumel, Minneapolis/St. Paul-Mazatlan, Minneapolis/St. Paul-Puerto Vallarta, Minneapolis/St. Paul-San Jose del Cabo, Minneapolis/St. Paul-Ixtapa/Zihuatenejo, Nashville-Cancun and Tampa-Cancun.
The carriers also asked to display Delta's code on seven Aeromexico routes: Atlanta-Mexico City, Chicago-Monterrey, Chicago-Zacatecas, Dallas/Fort Worth-Mexico City, Las Vegas-Guadalajara, Miami-Cancun and Phoenix-Hermosillo.
Delta and Aeromexico requested for the DOT to approve the expanded codeshare as soon as possible, requesting a waiver of a 45-day advance filing requirement so they can sell the flights without delay.
