Founded in 2009 together with Delta, the joint venture was expanded to Alitalia the following year. It covers all flights between North America, Mexico and Europe via an integrated collaboration.
Under a closely collaborative process, all flights between North America and Mexico to and from the Mediterranean basin, Africa, Gulf countries and India, as well as flights from Europe to and from Central America, Columbia, Venezuela, Peru and Ecuador, are also covered.
Passengers of the four airlines receive a number of benefits, including a broader choice of destinations and frequency of flights, competitive rates, harmonised services on the ground and in the air, and dedicated booking centres on both sides of the Atlantic.
The joint venture set up by Air France-KLM, Delta and Alitalia is contractual. It involves a partnership and therefore the sharing of tasks, costs and revenues, with no capital contribution.
