Both Delta and Aeromexico are founding members of the SkyTeam global airline alliance.

Delta and Aeromexico have a Joint Cooperation Agreement in place that allows both carriers to craft an expanded and more robust transborder route network that enhances competition between Mexico and the United States. At this time, the two airlines offer over 1,100 transborder flights weekly.
