U.S. Authorities Okay Delta/WestJet Partnership, But With Conditions
October 24, 2020 Admin
ThePointsGuy – U.S. officials have signed off on a long-planned partnership between Delta Air Lines and WestJet on flights between the U.S. and Canada.
Two years after the airlines applied for government approval, the Department of Transportation OK’d the pact with minimal conditions on Friday. Delta and WestJet must divest eight slot pairs — one slot pair is needed for a takeoff and landing — at New York LaGuardia (LGA) and exclude the latter’s budget arm Swoop from the joint venture to move forward.
