DSC_0436 2 (1)Delta Air Lines and Aeromexico announced the start of their new joint cooperation agreement on Monday.

In December, the U.S. Department of Transportation gave the two carriers a green light for the agreement, granting them antitrust immunity.

The two airlines are now able to set prices and coordinate schedules for their U.S.-Mexico flights with immunity from U.S. anti-trust laws. The airlines said they will then co-locate and improve their airport facilities such as lounges and gate areas.

The agreement “will help strengthen the relationship between Mexico and the United States by offering greater connectivity between the two countries,” said Andrés Conesa, Aeromexico’s CEO.

The joint venture will see the two carriers operate flights between the United States and Mexico, as well as invest in airport facilities, boarding gates, and lounges, and implement joint sales and marketing initiatives.

Delta will offer service to Mexico through its hubs in Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York, Salt Lake City, and Seattle, while Aeromexico will offer continuing service within Mexico through its hubs in Mexico City, Monterrey, and Guadalajara.
