MLT Vacations and its parent company, Delta Air Lines, has agreed with United Airlines to discontinue MLT's marketing partnership with United Airlines and its United Vacations brand.
In a letter sent out to MLT Vacations' travel agent partners, Terry Williams, vice president at MLT Vacations, said that the change will not be effective immediately and may, in fact, take up to a year to be finalized.
"The decision to discontinue the MLT/United Airlines partnership allows MLT to pursue a long term business strategy that focuses our efforts on developing the Delta Vacations brand, and exploring opportunities with Delta Air Lines' strategic and SkyTeam partners (as we did with Air France, Alitalia, and Aeromexico)," Williams said in the release. "In the coming months, we will work closely with United Airlines to ensure a smooth transition of the United Vacations brand, at United Airlines' direction. Our aim is to provide you and your customers with a seamless transition."
