When Is Air Europa Joining SkyTeam?

Wed May 31, 2006 1:46 am

In a press release in June 2005, it got announced Air Europa will be joining SkyTeam as an associate member. Does anyone know when this is to actually happen.

It has been almost a year, and I have not seen any other announcements.

The topic has been recently discussed in a very brief manner in Why Isn't Copa A SkyTeam Member? (by CessnaLady May 21 2006 in Civil Aviation)

There is, for some reason, a substantial delay between these announcements and actual SkyTeam membership. CZ was announced in August 2004 and still no word as to when they will actually gain membership. Air Europa was announced a year ago along with Kenya, Tarom and COPA.

SU actually joined quite quickly, but it is true that the entry of CZ and the associate members is taking too long.
Next flights: MEX-LAX AM 738, LAX-PVG DL 77L, SHA-PEK CA 789, PEK-PVG CA A332, PVG-ORD MU 77W, ORD-MEX AM 738
