The US airline Delta Air Lines, its joint venture partner Air France and KLM have introduced joint sales contracts for trade and corporate partners across Europe, effective this month. These contracts will ensure commercial efficiency across the region between the three airlines and corporate clients, and are a key milestone in the progress of the joint venture agreement, which sees Air France and Delta share costs and revenues across the transatlantic. Frank Jahangir, VP Sales at Delta Air Lines, commented: “The single contract brings many advantages to customers across the region. The contract provides a single point of contact, ensuring efficient and consistent contract maintenance and handling for all parties. Currently our three carriers operate 710 weekly frequencies on the transatlantic, all of which will be included in this single agreement.” Air France and Delta Air Lines have established a strong alliance relationship in recent years. Air France and KLM merged in 2004; KLM and Northwest Airlines established a transatlantic joint venture in 1998; Air France and Delta Air Lines established a transatlantic joint venture in April 2008; and Delta merged with Northwest in November 2008, under the single name of Delta.
