by Canadian Shipper

Korean Air has officially joined Air France and Delta Air Lines as a founding member of a cargo joint venture, to be launched later this year, reports Schednet.com.

The three carriers are also founding members of the SkyTeam Cargo alliance with Aeromexico and CSA Czech Airlines. This new venture will offer a combined sales force, a centralised reservation and service centre, a comprehensive route network and a common product line.

The joint venture will be based in Atlanta with regional offices in Atlanta, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, and will be managed and staffed by experienced cargo employees of all three carriers.

The company will be equally owned by Air France, Delta Air Lines and Korean Air, and governed by a joint board of directors. The venture will provide career opportunities to cargo employees in the areas of sales and sales support.
