Air France-KLM (AF.FR) said Monday that it has launched an "expanded joint venture" with Delta Air Lines Inc. (DAL) and Virgin Atlantic--part of Virgin Group--that aims to offer more routes to their customers.

Through the partnership, flyers will have a larger choice of routes and loyalty options when traveling between Europe, the U.K. and the U.S., the Franco-Dutch carrier said.

"The new partnership provides customers with more convenient flight schedules and a shared goal of ensuring a smooth and consistent travel experience, whichever airline people fly," the company added.

Air France, KLM and Delta have been transatlantic partners since 2009, while Virgin Atlantic struck a partnership with the U.S. airline in 2013. The next step was to establish a "single transatlantic joint venture," Air France-KLM said.
