SkyTeam Transatlantic Routes: 2015 Edition


A couple of years ago I produced a list of all the Transatlantic routes by alliance to help with searching for award trips and generally to enable those seeking to find new ways to get across the ocean. The data, unsurprisingly, became stale and things have changed. Also, I managed to ignore SkyTeam in that cycle. This time around I’m updating the data and SkyTeam made the cut. And, based on feedback last time around, I’m also including routes crossing between South America and Europe and reaching a bit further east as well. I’m still ignoring Africa for these results, though. Here is the latest collection of SkyTeam Transatlantic routes, gathered from timetables, published route maps and other sources. I’m pretty sure it is accurate though I’m guessing I missed one or three in there somewhere.

Aerolineas Argentinas & Aeromexico

These two Latin American carriers combine for 5 routes across the Atlantic. Not a ton of service but every little bit helps, I suppose.

Aeroflot

Speaking of “every little bit helps” we’ve got Aeroflot playing along, too.

Air Europa

Air Europa has a solid showing into LatAm, helping boost its route profile.

Air France

A solid mix of routes covering North America, the Caribbean and South America gives Air France an impressive display here, the second most of the alliance. A few of the Caribbean routes run from Orly.

Alitalia

Alitalia’s Rome hub continues to push passengers across the Atlantic. And expect more growth there soon with Etihad pulling the strings.

Delta

Delta currently flies the most Transatlantic routes of any carrier, edging out United by one. A few non-hub routes help, connecting to SkyTeam/JV partners in Paris and Amsterdam.

KLM

Similar to Air France, KLM has a solid spread of routes, especially to its protectorates and former colonies in the Caribbean.

SkyTeam as a whole comes in around 150 TATL routes, similar to oneworld and trailing Star Alliance by around 50 options. But plenty of routes served only by the alliance, which makes sense given the histories involved from the countries.

  1. Thank you for the comprehensive list and charts! What site did you use to generate the maps?

    1. The maps come from gcmap.com. Click on one and it’ll load up that site and let you play around.

    1. MEA doesn’t fly TATL. SV is too far east my my (completely arbitrary) metrics.

  2. awesome! any plans to create a *A and OW Version? Also, maybe a non-alliance edition. Would be cool to see all the ME3 routes in one map.

  3. Seth — I think you left out DL’s PHL-LHR and PHL-CDG routes (the latter being seasonal).

    1. DL’s EWR-LHR service is already announced to be cut so I’ve pulled it off the map. I did miss the others, though.

      Thanks.

  4. Very minor quibble here, but in the table you have DL flying ATL-PAR, when it should be ATL-CDG.

    1. AF 636/AF 639 is the CDG-IAH and vice versa.
      CDG-MIA is on there twice. CDG-MSP is seasonal: flights AF 694/AF 697.
