IMG_4579 (1)American Airlines and Delta Air Lines said the two have entered into a new interline agreement.

The news was announced via a memo to American employees on Tuesday.

“American and Delta have agreed to terms on a new interline agreement,” the airline said in a statement. The agreement gives the airlines “the option of rebooking customers onto each other’s flights in the event of unexpected flight disruptions.”

The two airlines previously had an interline agreement in force but it was cancelled by Delta amidst a dispute over rates “for moving customers between carriers during irregular operations,” American said at the time.

The new agreement only covers flight disruptions and does not allow either airline to sell tickets on behalf of the other.
