Delta Air Lines is celebrating its 40th anniversary of service to Guadalajara, Mexico (GDL). Over the last decade*, the airline has transported more than one million customers on approximately 9,000 flights connecting Guadalajara to Delta's extensive network in the U.S., Latin America and the world.
"Mexico is a key destination for North Americans and we are proud to have reached four decades flying to Guadalajara," said José "Pepe" Zapata, General Manager — Joint Cooperation Agreement Sales in Mexico. "I want to thank our employees for their commitment and support as well as Aeromexico employees and JCA partners because they work diligently to offer our joint customers the best of what each airline has to offer."
Delta operates one non-stop daily flight from Atlanta to Guadalajara in a Boeing 737-800 aircraft, offering 16 seats in First Class, 36 seats in Delta Comfort+, and 108 seats in Main Cabin during peak season.

Delta also connects Guadalajara through its Joint Cooperation Agreement with Aeromexico. Operated by its partner Aeromexico, Delta offers 7 additional destinations from GDL to Chicago (ORD), Fresno (FAT), Los Angeles (LAX), Sacramento (SMF), Salt Lake City (SLC), San Francisco (SFO) and San Jose (SJC).
Recently, Delta commemorated the first anniversary of this Joint Cooperation Agreement with Aeromexico, the largest trans-border alliance between Mexico and the United States. In the past year, the alliance has served more than seven million customers between both countries and across 64 different routes.
Last December, Delta featured a video produced by Aeromexico on Guadalajara's art, fashion and local cuisine in its video series "Destinos," inviting customers to explore all of what this destination has to offer for travelers.
