During its quarterly meeting in February, the SkyTeam alliance steering committee confirmed its decision to welcome Aeroflot’s bid for membership in the alliance. SkyTeam constantly considers prospective members that can offer customers greater convenience and extend the alliance’s global network. The committee believes Aeroflot’s 108 destinations in 54 countries would benefit the six-member partnership.
Aeroflot’s entrance into the alliance is contingent upon approval from the Russian government and the fulfillment of quality standards required by SkyTeam for all members.
SkyTeam currently includes Aeromexico, Air France, Alitalia, CSA Czech Airlines, Delta Air Lines and Korean Air.
