Delta Air Lines and Aeromexico End Joint Venture

Delta Air Lines DL A350-900 N502DN

Delta Air Lines and Aeromexico are ending their joint venture.

This comes after the U.S. Department of Transportation announced a tentative rejection of the application to renew the antitrust immunity (ATI) for the two companies’ joint business. Delta Air Lines stated, “This unprecedented regulatory overreach by the U.S. Department of Transportation will significantly harm consumers traveling between the United States and Mexico.”

The U.S. Department of Transportation cited recent actions by the Mexican government, such as the prohibition of all cargo flights and reduction of capacity at Mexico City International Airport, as effectively eliminating the necessary conditions for continuation. Despite discussions between the U.S. and Mexican governments on adherence to international norms in air agreements and airport slot management, there has been no change in policy.
