Delta Air Lines and Aeromexico celebrate five years of their U.S.-Mexico transborder alliance

This May marks the five-year anniversary of the implementation of Delta Air Lines and Aeromexico’s leading Joint Cooperation Agreement (JCA). The JCA is a transborder alliance that connects the carriers’ networks between the U.S. and Mexico and has improved service, expanded routes and benefited more than 28 million customers since launching in 2017. Throughout their JCA partnership, Delta and Aeromexico have flown 365 million miles, equaling 14,663 trips around the world, and have operated more than 250,000 flights.

Today, Delta and Aeromexico offer 43 routes between Mexico and the U.S., including the most flights from Los Angeles, with 35 weekly flights to Mexico City; and from New York, with 28 weekly flights, along with service between other major transborder markets in California, Texas and Florida.

Throughout their partnership, Delta and Aeromexico have worked closely to develop comprehensive and aligned products and services for their customers that ensure a consistent and industry-leading customer experience, including:

Seamless check-in powered by SkyTeam technology that enables digital check-in for multi-airline travel via both Delta and Aeromexico’s existing apps or websites.
Free messaging onboard through onboard Wi-Fi (where available).
Consistent checked and carry-on luggage policies.
“We’re proud of how our innovative Joint Cooperation Agreement has transformed the U.S.-Mexico transborder market by generating significant benefits for customers and a more expansive route network,” said Perry Cantarutti, S.V.P. - Alliances for Delta. “As we celebrate the success of our partnership with Aeromexico, we do so with the continued commitment to offer our customers the outstanding experience they deserve.”

Since quickly responding to the pandemic, Delta and Aeromexico have gradually recovered their transborder schedule. In July 2021, flights from Mexico to Dallas and Austin resumed, while service from Guadalajara to Salt Lake City resumed in September 2021. Both airlines continue to restore service as demand returns.

Throughout the pandemic, both airlines have also focused on the health and safety of their customers and employees through the Delta CareStandardSM and Aeromexico’s Health and Sanitization Management System.

“This year has started with wonderful news, as step by step we continue to recover the dynamics that we had achieved prior to the pandemic. We will operate more than 4,300 flights for May, which is a 96% recovery compared to the same period in 2019. At the same time, the operation to the main beach destinations in Mexico has fully recovered, with capacity growing 16% compared to 2019,” said Giancarlo Mulinelli Avilés, S.V.P. of Global Sales at Aeromexico.

Aeromexico signs deal to lease nine Boeing 737 MAX jets...............

This week the aircraft leasing giant Air Lease Corporation confirmed it had struck a deal with one of the leading airlines in Mexico, Aeromexico to lease them nine Boeing 737 MAX jets.

The deal will see the company get two 737 MAX 8s and seven MAX 9s which are currently in storage from cancelled orders after the two fatal crashes that saw the type grounded for nearly two years. Aeromexico is scheduled to take delivery of the last plane in early August next year. 

“Air Lease Corporation is Aeromexico’s largest lessor, and we are pleased to further our relationship with the airline with these nine new Boeing 737 aircraft lease placements,” said Steven Udvar-Házy, Executive Chairman of Air Lease Corporation.  “The 737 offers the most modern, fuel-efficient technology to enhance the global capabilities of Mexico’s premier airline.”

“Aeromexico is delighted once again to partner with ALC to help modernize our fleet with new fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly Boeing aircraft in 2022 and 2023,” said Dr Andres Conesa, CEO of Aeromexico.

The carrier is just emerging for bankruptcy protection and has said it plans to invest around $5 million on updating and renewing its aircraft fleet, with an estimate of operating nearly 150 planes by the end of the year.

Delta looking to cement global partner strategy

The U.S. mega-carrier, Delta Air Lines has confirmed it will be making further investments in Virgin Atlantic, Aeromexico and LATAM as these partner airlines transform their businesses to emerge from the global pandemic.

Prior to the pandemic, Delta was achieving record international growth attributed to a combination of organic growth and its global partner network. Over the past 10 years, Delta has built industry-leading partnerships with flagship airlines across Europe, Asia and Latin America. As international travel demand returns, the connectivity, relevance and breadth of Delta’s global network with its partners remains critical to continuing this success.

“These strategic investments in our partners will transform our ability to improve travel for our customers, enabling us to deliver a seamless travel experience alongside offering our customers an unrivalled network between North American and premier markets worldwide,” said Delta CEO Ed Bastian. “The work each of our partners has done to strengthen their businesses for the future makes these partnerships even more valuable and creates a new era of international travel to benefit our customers, our employees and our investors as global travel rebounds in 2022 and beyond.”

In support of its global future, Delta is investing in Virgin Atlantic, Aeromexico and LATAM as each carrier emerges from restructuring or recapitalization. Upon completion of their respective processes, Delta is targeting a 20% equity stake in Aeromexico and a 10% equity stake in LATAM. In addition, Delta will maintain its 49% equity stake in Virgin Atlantic. The airline’s investment in these carriers will be approximately $1.2 billion.

With new widebody aircraft on the way, record hiring, and significant investments in international readiness, Delta is positioned to lead the industry through the ongoing recovery. Delta’s partnerships with Virgin Atlantic, Aeromexico and LATAM expand that growth potential, helping to fuel route additions, customer connectivity and associated job creation:

Aeromexico: The airlines’ existing Joint Cooperation Agreement (JCA) launched in 2017. Over the past four years, Delta and Aeromexico have built a leading trans-border network of more than 40 popular business and leisure routes from their main hubs and offering the most service in the largest New York and Los Angeles markets.
LATAM: Delta and LATAM’s trans-American Joint Venture Agreement will combine the carriers’ highly complementary route networks between North and South America. Following Chilean Court approval of the JV in October this year, Delta and LATAM expanded their existing codeshares to improve connectivity between North and South America.
Virgin Atlantic: Delta’s joint venture with Virgin Atlantic has, since 2013, solidified Delta’s position on key U.S.-U.K. routes including the leading business route New York-JFK to London Heathrow.  
“Throughout the pandemic, Delta has continued to invest in our future, including new aircraft orders, accelerating real estate projects and putting significant resources into health and safety measures to protect our employees and our customers,” said Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Dan Janki.  “Similarly, investing in our partners now – even as we continue to navigate the pandemic – is the right choice to support Delta’s long-term strategy.”

There is no change to Delta’s investments in AFKL, Korean Air and China Eastern.

With a shared ethos of the highest levels of customer service, Delta is focused on delivering benefits for customers through initiatives including seamless technology, loyalty reciprocity and frictionless connectivity with its global partners.   Delta’s own international network combined with its partnerships creates an extensive global network and positions the airline to successfully capitalize on the re-opening of international markets, as well as anticipated growth into the future.

Aeromexico issues 2020 sustainability report

Yesterday, Aeromexico held a virtual event entitled "Volamos juntos hacia un mejor futuro", to celebrate submitting its 2020 Sustainability Report to the Mexican Stock Exchange (BMV), which details 141 indicators on the carriers economic, environmental, social and corporate governance performance.

Manuel Piñuela, founder and CEO of Cultivo; Alejandro Muguerza, National Fundraising Director for the Mexican Red Cross; Enrique Calderon, Vice President of Hotel Operations of Grupo Posadas; and Cuitlahuac Gutierrez, Mexico’s Country Manager of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), participated as guests during the presentation. 

The guests discussed relevant topics of the airline industry, as well as actions and practices in social and environmental matters, aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

In a corporate video, the airline summarized its 2020 sustainability strategy with messages from its CEO and different air and ground employees representing all the company’s divisions.  

Andres Conesa, CEO, and Sergio Allard, Executive Vice President Legal and Institutional Relations, expressed that although 2020 was one of the most challenging years in the airline industry history, the carrier did not and will not stop flying and recognized the efforts of all employees and its four unions. 
Aeromexico flew through the turbulence without ceasing to achieve goals that allowed it to comply with its sustainability strategy. Some of its milestones were: 

New 737 MAX 9 for Aeromexico

 New Boeing 737-MAX 9 for Aeromexico on lease from Air Lease Corporation

Leasing giant Air Lease Corporation has delivered one new Boeing 737- MAX 9 aircraft on long-term lease to Aeromexico. This is the first of four new Boeing 737- MAX 9s Aeromexico has committed to lease long-term from ALC.

“ALC is pleased to deliver this new 737-9 aircraft to our long-term customer, Aeromexico, today,” said Steven Udvar-Házy, Executive Chairman of Air Lease Corporation.  “This new technology 737-9 from ALC will play a key role in Aeromexico’s route network and overall fleet operations.” 

Aeromexico is one of Mexico’s leading global airlines has its main hub at Terminal 2 at the Mexico City International Airport. Its destinations network features the United States, Canada, Central America, South America, Asia and Europe. The Group's operating fleet is comprised of over 100 Boeing 737, 787 and Embraer E190 aircraft models. It was also a founding member of the SkyTeam airline alliance which serves in 170 countries by the 19 SkyTeam airline partners. 

The airline is currently battling restrictions imposed for U.S authorities over safety issues which means it won't be able to increase capacity on services into the states for some time to come which may hamper 737 MAX scheduling, where the - 9's were originally destined to go. 

Many in Mexico are angry that the national carrier and its leasing partners are renaming the aircraft the 737-9 in all publicity,  "It is a morally bankrupt decision to mislead the travelling public who rightly distrust the 737 MAX name and aircraft." one aviation correspondent told us on Tuesday.

Aeromexico and Boeing renegotiate order for 28 aircraft

Aeromexico has managed to secure a massive discount on its latest order from U.S. planemaker Boeing, according to sources close to the deal.  

Whilst the exact discount hasn't been disclosed on the order for 24 737 MAX jets it was conditional on the purchase of 4 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft and was part of intense negotiations rearranging and amending previous agreements. 

The financially troubled carrier has also managed to negotiate better conditions in some long-term maintenance for its existing fleet and leasing contracts which should offer savings of around $2 billion. "Thanks to the savings, the Company can offer even more competitive fares, guaranteeing the best travel experience for customers in state-of-the-art aircraft with on-ground and in-flight services that only Aeromexico offers." The carrier said in a statement this week.

Andres Conesa, CEO of Aeromexico, stated: "These transactions show the confidence of our employees, customers, lessors, manufacturers, investors, and business partners in the future of Mexico's global airline. It will also give us flexibility to complete other negotiations and put Aeromexico on a strong path to exit Chapter 11 later this year.

Aeromexico’s current fleet is comprised of 107 aircraft: 47 Embraer 190s, 42 Boeing 737s, and 18 Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
