Delta Air Lines has applied for authority to launch new seasonal flights to Mazatlan and San Jose del Cabo in December.

The Atlanta-based SkyTeam alliance carrier plans to offer daily service between San Diego International and San Jose del Cabo, and between Los Angeles International and Mazatlan, as well as Saturday-only service between New York JFK and San Jose del Cabo from 20 December, according to a joint regulatory filing with Aeromexico.

All of the flights would carry the Aeromexico code and be operated on 160-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

The new flights would continue Delta’s build-up in markets dominated by codeshare partner Alaska Airlines. The Seattle-based carrier offers flights on both the Los Angeles-Mazatlan and San Diego-San Jose del Cabo routes, markets where it has had a presence for more than a decade.

Delta applied for authority to add service between Seattle and San Jose del Cabo in February, another market dominated by Alaska.

Spirit Airlines also flies between San Diego and San Jose del Cabo, Innovata schedules show. No airlines fly between New York JFK and San Jose del Cabo.

Delta is also seeking authority for new Salt Lake City-Mexico City service and to upgauge its existing Atlanta-Leon/Guanajuato and Los Angeles-Leon/Guanajuato flights from 20 December.
