Hard on the heels of the Qantas “super-hangar” development at Los Angeles International Airport (BTN last week), Delta Air Lines is kicking off its biggest year yet at LAX with the start of a $1.9bn (about £1.5bn) infrastructure project.
Regional vice-president for sales Ranjan Goswami said the airline was also announcing new local partnerships, expanding routes and the implementation of a strategic alliance with Aeromexico.
“Continuous improvement is the essence of who we are at Delta, and in 2017 we will stay true to that promise with projects and partnerships that significantly improve the customer experience,” he added.
Delta, the airport authority and Los Angeles city announced last year the $1.9bn joint project to build a new hub by upgrading and connecting Terminals 2 and 3 at LAX, ahead of which Delta will move out of Terminal 5 and 6 and into Terminal 2 and 3 this May.
Also this year, Delta expects to close on its “joint co-operation agreement” with Aeromexico, which will establish the largest trans-border alliance between the US and its southern neighbour.
Delta says the deal will benefit both airlines’ passengers and the partnership will mean that the two carriers together will be the largest provider of service between LAX and Mexico.
