Delta and Aerolineas Argentinas to Start Codeshare Flights

ATLANTA and BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) and Aerolineas Argentinas today announced a codesharing agreement for flights connecting Miami and Atlanta to Buenos Aires as well as service to 14 U.S. destinations, eight domestic destinations in Argentina, three flights to Canada and flights to Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay. Codesharing on the flights will start in the fourth quarter of 2011.*

The airlines also announced the future activation of new reciprocal benefits for their frequent fliers that include accrual and redemption of miles, scheduled to start in 2012. Aerolineas Argentinas will also join the SkyTeam global alliance in 2012, which will allow the carriers to provide additional customer benefits.

**Since 1997, Delta*s presence in South America has grown significantly. Today we offer 95 weekly nonstop flights to eight countries in South America, and a total of 1,083 weekly flights to Latin America and the Caribbean. This new agreement with Aerolineas Argentinas is key to our strategy, and will help us solidify and expand our network to, from and within Argentina and will allow us to provide service to all countries in the Southern Cone,** said Delta President Ed Bastian. **A significant step for Aerolineas Argentinas, this codeshare agreement validates the bold and aggressive steps they are taking to offer a world-class network prior to joining SkyTeam in 2012.**

**This new agreement offers Aerolineas Argentinas a great opportunity to expand its network in North America, and also will offer Delta customers new destinations throughout Argentina and South America,** said Mariano Recalde, president of Aerolineas Argentinas. **The mutual benefits for our passengers are clear, now Aerolineas* customers will be able to access over 300 destinations around the world.**

Codeshare flights allow passengers to buy tickets on one or more carriers from a single point of sale, offering greater access to another airline*s network.

When implemented in the fourth quarter of 2011, the agreement will connect Delta*s daily service from its hub in Atlanta to the Aerolineas Argentinas hub at Buenos Aires and beyond to cities in Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay. It also includes flights connecting Aerolineas Argentinas service from Buenos Aires to Miami with flights to 15 cities in the U.S. and Canada on Delta*s network.
