“Working together with Delta, the premier US carrier, we are looking forward to providing enhanced offerings and more choice for guests. The joint venture will allow us to maximize our existing partnership with Delta to benefit customers by bringing greater competition to the trans-border market.”

The venture is expected to provide transborder services to more than 30 key cities across the US and Canada, serving more than 95% of US-Canada demand, providing customers of both airlines with more options and an enhanced overall experience.
