The Aeromexico-Delta Air Lines Joint Cooperation Agreement (JCA) will expand its operations between Mexico and the United States.

Beginning January 2024, Aeromexico will gradually introduce 17 new routes from seven airports in Mexico to nine destinations in the U.S., and all of these flights will be supported by Delta codeshare.

17 New Routes on the Horizon

Starting in January 2024, Aeromexico, the flagship Mexican airline, is poised to embark on an ambitious journey by introducing 17 new routes connecting seven major Mexican airports to nine exciting destinations in the United States.

All these flights will be seamlessly supported by Delta codeshare, making travel between these two neighboring nations more convenient.

The proposed expansion doesn’t stop at new routes alone. Aeromexico has grand plans to ramp up its flight frequencies to current destinations as well.

By July 2024, the airline aims to operate nearly 60 daily flights to the United States, marking a substantial 35% increase in departures compared to the previous year.

This significant boost in operations will see Aeromexico’s presence expand to cover a remarkable 36 U.S. markets.


Delta Air Lines, a key player in this alliance, is not to be left behind. In the same timeframe, Delta plans to operate 34 daily flights to various destinations across Mexico, serving seven different Mexican cities.

This concerted effort by both airlines is set to deliver over 30% more seats year-over-year, effectively widening the spectrum of options for passengers traveling between the U.S. and Mexico.

90 Daily Flights by 2024

Looking ahead to 2024, the Aeromexico-Delta JCA is on track to offer an astounding 90 daily flights that will crisscross between Mexico and the United States, connecting travelers to nearly 60 different routes.

This ambitious expansion plan is a testament to mutual confidence and commitment invested in this cross-border alliance.

Operating with a Modern Fleet

Aeromexico’s ability to expand its routes and frequencies is made possible by its fleet renewal initiative, which has seen the addition of over 50 new aircraft, with the majority being state-of-the-art Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.

These new additions not only signify a commitment to passenger safety but also elevate the overall travel experience, making every journey extraordinary.

As part of this growth, Aeromexico is set to have more than 1,000 monthly flights operating at the Felipe Angeles International Airport (AIFA) starting from October.

This development will see two new routes added to the United States from AIFA, opening up even more possibilities for travelers.

Largest transborder market

Throughout their partnership, Delta and Aeromexico have been steadfast in their commitment to becoming the leading airline alliance between Mexico and the United States, which is undeniably the largest trans-border air market globally.

Their collaborative efforts have resulted in a range of customer-centric products and services that ensure a consistent and industry-leading experience for travelers, including:
