SkyTeam - History of the Alliance

A History of Excellence

Aeroméxico, Air France, Delta Air Lines and Korean Air founded SkyTeam in June 2000. Since then, we have steadily grown to our current membership of 20 airlines. Over the last decade – a challenging one for the aviation industry – we have more than tripled the number of member airlines, doubled the number of flights and nearly doubled our destinations, while offering customers smoother connections around the world. 

Looking back at our steady growth of members, our focus on covering the globe is clear. We have added airlines from virtually every corner of the planet, in addition to flying from some of the most modern and convenient hubs in Europe, the United States, Asia and Africa. As we grow, we continue to offer our customers frequent flyer programs, more destinations, more frequencies and better connectivity.
