A joint venture covering US & Mexico flights slated for April 1…

Delta Airlines recently concluded a $620 M Areomexico stock purchase, which has left Delta now owning a 36.2% stake in the airline.  The 228 million shares were purchased at the rate of $2.70 USD/share.

Delta first disclosed plans to increase its stake in Aeromexico in November 2015. It initially invested $65 million in the Mexican carrier in 2012.

The carriers have worked together since 1994, starting with a codeshare agreement, where an airline agreeds to sell another’s seats for travel on a route that they don’t fly. In fact, the two airlines reached a joint cooperation agreement which will begin in the second fiscal quarter. The agreement will cover flights between the US and Mexico and has already been approved by regulators in both countries.

La aerolínea Delta recién concluyó la adquisición de acciones de Aeroméxico por $620 millones, lo que permite a Delta tener 36.2% de las participaciones sociales en la aerolínea. Las 228 millones de acciones fueron compradas a $2.70 dólares estadounidenses por acción.

En Noviembre del año 2015 Delta divulgó planes de aumentar su participación social en Aeroméxico. En el año 2012 originalmente invirtió $ 65 millones en la aerolínea mexicana.

Ambas aerolíneas han trabajado a la par desde 1994; comenzando con un convenio de código compartido, donde una aerolínea conviene vender los asientos de la otra para viajes de una ruta que no vuelan. De hecho, ambas aerolíneas llegaron a un acuerdo de colaboración conjunta que iniciará  el segundo trimestre fiscal. El acuerdo  cubrirá vuelos entre los EUA y México, y ello ya cuenta con la aprobación de las agencias reguladoras en ambos países.
