Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) today welcomed Romania’s flag carrier, TAROM, as the newest member of the SkyTeam global airline alliance. With TAROM’s entrance, Delta customers immediately gain the ability to earn and redeem SkyMiles on TAROM flights, as well as access to 11 additional destinations not offered by other SkyTeam airlines including: Iasi, Cluj-Napoca, Constanta and Timisoara, Romania and Chisinau, Moldova.
Improving our customers’ access to important commercial regions in Europe continues to be a key focus for SkyTeam,” said Delta CEO Richard Anderson. “The addition of Romania’s national airline to SkyTeam adds a number of destinations unique to our alliance and strengthens our presence within Central and Eastern Europe by building on the comprehensive networks already offered by our SkyTeam partners Aeroflot and Czech Airlines.”
Delta customers traveling to Romania already benefit from numerous travel options thanks to Delta’s joint venture with Air France-KLM and codeshare agreement with SkyTeam partner, Czech Airlines. Passengers may connect to Bucharest on flights operated by Air France and KLM on a single codeshare ticket from cities throughout Delta’s U.S. network via Paris CDG and Amsterdam Schiphol or Prague. Additionally, for customers traveling on a SkyTeam round-the-world pass, TAROM operates service to a further 17 trans-Atlantic destinations served nonstop by Delta to the United States, offering greater choice and flexibility when planning itineraries.
