Delta has acquired a 4.3% stake in Korean Air's largest
shareholder, Hanjin KAL, and plans to increase that stake to 10%, pending
Current market prices value the stake at about $88 million,
according to Reuters. A joint venture between Korean Air and Delta began last
year and has been one of Delta's "fastest-integrating and most successful
partnerships," according to Delta CEO Ed Bastian.
Delta has invested in other partners, including Air
France-KLM, Aeromexico, Gol, China Eastern and Virgin Atlantic, in which Delta
has a 49% stake.
