ATLANTA, Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL - news) today announced a long-term marketing agreement with its newest codeshare partner, Aerolitoral, Mexico's leading regional carrier. Beginning Nov. 30, 2001, Delta customers will be able to travel on three Aerolitoral-operated routes between the United States and Mexico, including El Paso to Chihuahua, San Antonio to Monterrey, and Tucson to Hermosillo. |
Paul G. Matsen, Delta's senior vice president, International & Alliances, said, ``Delta's Mexico network is the foundation of our growing Latin American and Caribbean route system. This new codeshare service with Aerolitoral offers business and leisure passengers additional reach within Mexico, introducing three new U.S. gateway cities to Delta's existing network.''
Delta offers more service between the United States and Mexico than any other U.S. carrier. Customers can choose to travel on any of 300 codeshare flights a day between 15 U.S. gateways and 36 cities within Mexico on either Delta, Aerolitoral, or Aeromexico-operated aircraft.
