SkyTeam considering addition of Gol and Virgin Atlantic

SkyTeam is considering adding Gol and Virgin Atlantic following Delta Air Lines’ acquisition of stakes in both carriers (Bloomberg, 03-Jun-2013). SkyTeam MD Michael Wisbrun said “Brazil is on the wish list,” but that Gol would need to expand its network in order to apply for membership. Mr Wisbrun added that a Virgin Atlantic bid for membership could be possible from 2015, once Delta’s acquisition of 49% of the carrier had been completed. Mr Wisbrun added SkyTeam members are “comfortable with the footprint we have today.”
