Delta Air Lines will add nonstop service to Mexico City from its Minneapolis/St. Paul hub.
Daily service will begin June 8, with Delta offering one daily round-trip flight on 132-seat Airbus A319 aircraft.
Delta says the flights will be operated “in conjunction” with joint-venture partner Aeromexico. As part of the partnership, the airlines can share revenues on certain routes and sell connecting tickets on each other’s flights.
“At the same time, it allows for more choice and options for customers in many U.S. and Canadian cities through one convenient, easy connection as well as easy connections to dozens of destinations in Mexico thanks to our partnership with Aeromexico,” Steve Sear, a top Delta executive.
