Air Algerie Trying To Join Skyteam

Tue Jun 19, 2007 7:02 am

An article on Air Algerie from Aviation Week and Space Technology June 11 issue:

"One of the first steps is to gain alliance membership. Air France has agreed to sponsor Air Algerie for Skyteam membership, says Air Algerie Chief Executive M. T. Benouis. It is not clear when Air Algerie would be absorbed into the airline grouping, but it will likely take several years."

This is very good news and it's not surprising they choose Skyteam as France is probably their main market and therefore there is strong advantages for AH to partner for AF. But as you said, it will take time. AH needs to modernize its fleet, improve its on-board service and IT systems.
