    Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) and Virgin Australia Airlines (ASX: VBA) today welcomed the U.S. Department of Transportation's proposed grant of antitrust immunity to their alliance, which will allow the airlines to implement their joint venture, expanding their reach between the U.S., Australia and the South Pacific region.

    Antitrust immunity will enable Delta and Virgin Australia Airlines to provide a seamless product to customers and more options for travel between the U.S. and South Pacific. The airlines will collaborate through codesharing, coordinating route and product planning and extending frequent flyer program benefits and lounge access to customers of both carriers.
