Routing Information

Below you will find a review of the various routing options as well as some pros and cons of the program to consider.  We hope this helps in your decision making process.

North America

 

The combination of Delta, Northwest and Continental airlines, three of North Americas largest carriers allows for virtually every city in the United States to have some service.  There is no Canadian member of this alliance so travel in Canada is somewhat restricted. All the other airlines in this alliance provide limited service to and thru North America.

 

South and Central America

Aero Mexico, the largest airline in Mexico and Copa Airlines of Panama services many destinations in Central America. For extensive travel in the Central American region this alliance offers the largest route network.

Delta and Continental offer routings to a variety of cities in Central America. Korean Air has a route from Los Angeles to Sao Paulo. Air France and Alitalia provides service to Europe from several South American cities.  This alliance has no South American carrier and internal travel within the continent is somewhat limited but Copa Airlines does put much of the region accessible.

Europe

Air France has an extensive array of destinations throughout the world and this alliance does not limit the number of stops in Europe. CSA Czech Airlines, Air Europa, KLM and Alitalia are among the largest on the continent and almost any destination is within easy reach. The addition of Aeroflot of Russia to this alliance makes some unique advantages for visiting nations of the former Soviet Union.

Delta provides service to North American destinations and has a route from Frankfurt to India. Korean airlines provides service to Asia utilizing its hub in Seoul.

Asia

Korean Airlines provides service throughout the continent, and most major cities are serviced. China Southern is the largest airline in China and offers a wealth of travel opportunities not only in China but throughout Asia. Air France services many Asian routes from Paris, and Delta services some routes from the United States. 

Africa

Air France and Alitalia provide  transportation from Africa to  Europe. Kenya Airways offers many opportunities for travel throughout Africa as well as limited service to Europe.

South Pacific

 

Only Korean Airlines provides service to Australia and New Zealand from its hub in Seoul.  Air France has a few routes to Tahiti and the South Pacific from Los Angeles, but the other Skyteam members offer no service to or thru this region.
