Frequent Flyer & Loyalty Program News - Africa / Middle East.

New York, Geneva (AirGuide - Frequent Flyer & Loyalty Program News Africa / Middle East) Jun 27, 2010

Aeromexico, Avianca, SkyTeam Aeromexico expects to begin codesharing with Avianca-TACA as it tries to persuade the newly merged carrier to join it in SkyTeam. Avianca-TACA, which completed their landmark merger earlier this year, has been looking at joining Star or SkyTeam. Aeromexico CEO Andres Conesa says he is "hopeful" Avianca-TACA will pick SkyTeam, but regardless of its global alliance decision he envisions a bilateral alliance between the two carriers. Avianca currently codeshares with Oneworld member Mexicana, which is currently the only Mexican carrier serving Colombia. But as Aeromexico prepares to enter the Mexico City-Bogota market early next month, the carrier is also interested in codesharing with Colombia's largest carrier. Jun 24, 2010
