Sky Team Cargo - History

History

Three months following SkyTeam's founding, on 22 June, the airline alliance announced in September 2000 the creation of its cargo division, SkyTeam Cargo. The alliance's inaugural members are Aeroméxico Cargo, Air France Cargo, Delta Air Logistics, and Korean Air Cargo, whose passenger airline operations are members of SkyTeam.

In 2001, Czech Airlines Cargo and Alitalia Cargo joined in April and August, respectively. Both divisions joined the cargo alliance within days of CSA Czech Airlines (25 March) and Alitalia (27 July) joining SkyTeam.

KLM Cargo joined SkyTeam Cargo in September 2004, four months following the merge of Air France and KLM, which subsequently created the Air France-KLM holding company. The following year, in September, Northwest Airlines Cargo joined the cargo alliance, a move which came one year after Northwest Airlines joined SkyTeam. However, on 14 April 2008, Northwest Airlines merged with Delta Air Lines, which led to the largest airline in the world. China Southern Airlines joined the cargo alliance by November 2010.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    Free from public debt, at peace with all the world, and with no complicated interests to consult in our intercourse with foreign powers, the present may be hailed as the epoch in our history the most favorable for the settlement of those principles in our domestic policy which shall be best calculated to give stability to our Republic and secure the blessings of freedom to our citizens.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    The only history is a mere question of one’s struggle inside oneself. But that is the joy of it. One need neither discover Americas nor conquer nations, and yet one has as great a work as Columbus or Alexander, to do.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    All history and art are against us, but we still expect happiness in love.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
