Delta Air Lines has signed a codeshare agreement with the Transavia subsidiary of KLM that will expand the choice of onward destinations offered from the United States via its hub at Amsterdam.
Customers flying on any of Delta's 19 daily flights from the US to Schiphol will be able to connect with 10 Transavia destinations, including four not currently offered by Delta through its existing trans-Atlantic airline partnerships.
These new codeshare points include: Seville and Alicante (Spain); Thessaloniki (Greece); and Marrakech (Morocco). Six points already served by Delta will receive additional schedule connection opportunities with Transavia, including Barcelona, Malaga, Valencia and Ibiza (Spain); Lisbon (Portugal); and Casablanca (Morocco).
"Partnering with Transavia will enable Delta to expand its network to include more leisure destinations, primarily in the Mediterranean region, that are popular with US tourists during both summer and winter months," said Nat Pieper, Delta's new senior vice president Europe, Middle East and Africa. "This agreement complements our already extensive network of codeshare services offered via Amsterdam with our partner KLM and opens the possibility of Delta being able to codeshare to additional Transavia destinations in the future."
Transavia serves more than 110 destinations throughout Europe and into North Africa with its fleet of 43 Boeing 737 aircraft. www.delta.com www.transavia.com
