Hola, en junio pasado se publicó este artículo:

It turns out that Delta’s planned Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) and Seoul Incheon (ICN) flights may not be the only new route coming to the airline’s Midwestern hub.

CEO Ed Bastian told the Star Tribune that the airline wants to launch nonstop flights between MSP and Mexico City (MEX). In his words, “we aren’t ready to announce that, but it’s clearly our goal to be able to fly that … so I think you will see us do that in the not too distant future.”

Much like the flights to Seoul give Midwestern travelers a better way to connect to destinations throughout Asia, this planned route could provide Delta flyers a hub to continue throughout Central and South America due to Delta’s joint venture with Aéromexico. And Mexico City is an exciting place in its own right.

It’s clear that the major factor behind Delta’s decision to fly MSP to ICN isn’t just getting passengers to Korea, but rather to a major hub to connect onward throughout Asia. That’s possible due to a stronger partnership with Korean Air, the main airline of Korea whose hub is in Seoul.

Delta has been building those same connections with Aéromexico, Mexico’s flag carrier based out of MEX. Direct flights to MEX would augment MSP’s existing flights to Mexico that get winter-weary travelers to the beach.

Delta already flies from MSP to Cancún (CUN) year-round. And there are seasonal routes to Puerto Vallarta (PVR), San José del Cabo (SJD), Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo (ZIH) and Mazatlán (MZT). However, the average traveler is flying to Cancun or Cabo for vacation, and not to catch another flight.

Aeromexico flies from its hub to dozens of destinations throughout Central America and South America. And the joint venture between the two airlines helps create a seamless way to hop on a Delta flight to Mexico City, then continue onward. Think São Paulo, Bogotá, Lima, Quito, Buenos Aires and more.

Resulta que lo de arriba se hizo realidad, pues en los foros de airliners.net se reporta que Delta abrirá la ruta MSP-MEX en junio próximo; revisé la información en su página de internet y efectivamente, los vuelos están a la venta para iniciar el 8 de junio de 2019, con estos horarios y frecuencias:

DL 451 MSP 08:50 - 13:01 MEX (Diario) A319
DL 452 MEX 14:00 - 18:14 MSP (Diario) A319

Hay que recordar que esta ruta ya se intentó en el pasado, la vez más reciente fue lanzada por la propia Delta en diciembre de 2010 pero con pobres resultados, pues fue suspendida en agosto de 2011... bueno, quizá esta vez tenga mejores posibilidades de resultar exitosa, considerando la más estrecha relación entre Aeroméxico y Delta.

Saludos.

Le deseamos todo el éxito a Delta en esta ruta!

Mayer: Sabes si el slot para operarla se lo cedió AMX o ya era propiedad de Delta?

Hola, Edgar; espero que estés bien.

Desafortunadamente no tengo respuesta a tu pregunta sobre el slot para el nuevo vuelo de Delta a Minneapolis, en airliners.net se cuestionan lo mismo y se planteó que podrían ser de los slots que Alaska AL o Southwest dejaron de utilizar, o quizá espacios de la Fase II del procedimiento de asignación que tampoco se han usado. A ver si más adelante nos enteramos de dónde salieron.

Por otra parte, éste es el comunicado de prensa de Delta sobre esta nueva ruta a México:

Dec. 17, 2018 9:00 am
​​Delta, in conjunction with its partner Aeromexico, will bring customers flying through its hub in the Twin Cities a new option to reach Mexico City and beyond, subject to government approval. In addition, Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport uniquely offers connections to more than a dozen cities in the U.S and Canada not available over other Delta hubs.

"We've heard from our Twin Cities customers that Mexico City is at the top of their most requested destinations and this new service will give them just that and more," said Steve Sear, Delta's President — International and E.V.P. — Global Sales. "At the same time, it allows for more choice and options for customers in many U.S. and Canadian cities through one convenient, easy connection as well as easy connections to dozens of destinations in Mexico thanks to our partnership with Aeromexico."

Service will be aboard Delta's Airbus A319 aircraft with seating for 12 in First Class, 18 in Delta Comfort+ and 102 in the main cabin. Customers will enjoy large overhead bins, access to WiFi, free in-flight messaging on iMessage, Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp as well as free in-flight entertainment through Delta Studio.

The new service will operate on the following schedule beginning June 8:​

* Flight departs MSP at 8:50 a.m. and arrives in MEX at 1:01 p.m.
* Flight departs MEX at 2 p.m. and arrives in MSP at 6:14 p.m.

"Delta Air Lines' decision to provide direct service to Mexico City from its hub in Minneapolis-St. Paul is great news for people and businesses throughout Minnesota," said Metropolitan Airports Commission Executive Director and CEO Brian Ryks. "Mexico City is the most popular destination in Latin America lacking direct air service from MSP International Airport. On average, 700 people a day travel from MSP to Mexico. This new service and the connections from Mexico City to destinations beyond will make travel between Minnesota and locations south of the border easier and more convenient."

The new service rounds out nonstop flights operated by Delta and Aeromexico from all of Delta's U.S. hubs to Aeromexico's hub at Mexico City Benito Juarez International Airport, where conveniently timed flights give customers access to not only Mexico's largest and capital city, but dozens of destinations throughout Mexico. On a combined basis, Delta and Aeromexico offer more than 160 daily flights between the U.S. and Mexico.

Delta's Minneapolis/St. Paul hub offers approximately 400 departures every day, connecting Minnesota to the world and moving Delta customers with ease across the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia, including Tokyo-Haneda Airport, the business traveler's preferred airport located near central Tokyo. Earlier in 2018, Delta announced new service to Seoul-Incheon airport in conjunction with partner Korean Air to begin in April 2019. Additionally, Delta announced proposed service from Minneapolis/St. Paul to Shanghai to begin in 2020 subject to government approval.
