Dissolution of Aeroméxico and Delta Air would damage air connectivity – El Sol de México

The Employers’ Confederation of the Mexican Republic (Coparmex) warned that the possible dissolution of Aeroméxico with Delta Air linesderived from the reduction of operations at the AICMcould cause a increase in air transport prices.

“The existence of this agreement allows us to offer more and better travel options, more efficient connectivity and more competitive prices between Mexico and the United States,” the confederation said in a statement.

In January, the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) revealed that it would seek to end a joint collaboration agreement between the two airlines after the transfer of the cargo flights of the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) to Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA).

He DOT determined that these actions are detrimental to the carriers existing and potential new entrants. The decision is pending a final ruling, the department said, and they have until Oct. 26 to close their joint venture.

Coparmex indicated that if the separation is confirmed there would be a impact on air transport users between both countries, as well as sources of employment, business development and supply chains.

“The agreement between both airlines allows us to offer users lower prices because, through synergies, the companies increase operational efficiency, reduce costs and expand their route network; this improves flight schedules, travel times and, in overall, the service and benefits to passengers,” the agency added.
