Delta, Air France/KLM co-locate cargo in Seattle

Delta Cargo and the cargo division of its joint venture partner, Air France/KLM, have co-located cargo warehouse facilities in Seattle.

Delta Cargo’s Seattle warehouse has hosted Virgin Atlantic since March 26, 2017. In the last year, this ‘One-Roof’ partnership has handled over 1.2 million pounds of cargo with a daily 787 flight. This initiative is beneficial not only for the increased cargo tonnage capacity, but also to help deliver a coordinated cargo operation among Delta’s partners and to add employment opportunities at the station.

Other stations to which Delta has expanded this “One-Roof” warehousing initiative include: Atlanta (with Air France/KLM and Virgin Atlantic); Boston (with Air France, Virgin Atlantic and Alitalia); Salt Lake City, Minneapolis and Detroit (seasonally with KLM); and New York’s John F. Kennedy International, Washington-Dulles, Miami and Orlando (with Virgin Atlantic).

The airline expects monthly volumes of more than 400,000 pounds of highly-valuable cargo to be flown on Delta and newly launched Air France flights between Seattle and Paris.
