ITA Airways and Aeromexico have signed an agreement that will see them codesharing on 43 destinations and offering access to their respective lounges for some of each program’s elite members. The two SkyTeam airlines are looking to strengthen their relationship and this arrangement offers passengers an even more seamless experience.

Aeromexico passengers traveling from Mexico City International Airport (MEX) to Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci Fiumicino International Airport (FCO) will be able to seamlessly connect to ITA Airways flights headed to 15 cities in Italy, including Milan Malpensa Airport (MXP), Florence’s Amerigo Vespucci Airport (FLR), Naples-Capodichino International Airport (NAP), and more.

Those headed from Italy to Mexico will be able to connect to 28 Mexican destinations including Cancún International Airport (CUN), Puerto Vallarta’s Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport (PVR), Mérida International Airport (MID), and more.

Both airlines will allow passengers to enjoy some of the benefits of their respective loyalty programs in addition to any benefits they already receive as SkyTeam Elite or Elite Plus customers. Top-tier Platino and Titanio members of Aeromexico Rewards will be granted access to ITA Airways lounges in Italy, can check an additional bag free of charge, and receive priority boarding. Club Premium and Club Executive from Volare (ITA Airways loyalty program) will receive the same benefits including access to the Salones Premier of Aeromexico in Mexico City, Monterrey, Guadalajara, Torreon, and Chihuahua.

Anthony’s Take: It will be interesting to see if ITA Airways departs Sky Team if and when Lufthansa acquires the Italian carrier. This has not happened yet, but could in the not-so-distant future. I’m also curious if ITA Airways will do anything else to further integrate with SkyTeam as it has kept to the periphery since its rebrand from Alitalia.
