  • Delta Air Lines

Delta Air Lines, strengthened by its deep ties with Aeromexico, is relaunching nonstop service between Minneapolis-St. Paul and Mexico City. The year-round, daily flight is slated to begin June 8. It marks Delta’s third announcement of a new international destination for Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport this year. Delta flew between its Twin Cities hub and Mexico’s capital city several years ago, but didn’t have enough passengers to support the route and ceased service in August 2011. Since then, Delta and Aeromexico have formed a close joint venture — with Delta owning 49 percent of the Mexico-based carrier — which expands connecting traffic in both cities and increases the route’s chance of success.Aeromexico is the largest airline in Latin America and Mexico City’s Benito Juarez International Airport is the region’s busiest airport. MSP passengers connect there to 41 other destinations in Mexico and Latin America, MSP officials said.
