Welcome to the official IFC thread for the Sky Team Alliance, founded in August of 2018 by Air France-KLM and Delta Virtual. Sky Team has been the dream of the leadership of the two Virtual Airlines since the conception of Infinite Flight’s Global Update in 2017. While it has been a long and tedious process to officially get to the point to release, we are excited to bring the biggest, boldest and best Virtual Alliance around bringing together two of the largest VA’s in the Infinite Flight Community and hopefully continue to expand with other members to join the Sky Team Alliance in the future.

We are the Italian virtual airline, founded by Italian IFC members.
We believe that our saying Vivi, Ama, Vola (stands for live, love, fly) truly represents us, as our main mission is to be a family-friendly VA helping IF pilots to grow in the Virtual Airline world.
We put quality over quantity, that is why we decided to join the SkyTeam alliance allowing our pilots to join other SkyTeam airlines and profit not only of codesharing, but also rank-sharing and professional events.

Delta Virtual officially opened behind its founder @anon2063420 in December of 2016. Since then, the VA has blossomed to one of the largest in the Infinite Flight Community that operates with 150 active pilots and an average of 40 to 50 flights logged per day. Going over the million minute mark of Global in January, and two-million mark in April, the VA has been thriving behind a strong group of pilots. Delta Virtual operates a real-world based flight system where pilots use the same aircraft on routes as Delta uses in real life. The route system is constantly updated and features more than 1,600 routes for the pilots to enjoy!

Hub Captains
Hub Captains are the newest level of support that work under the coordination of the Route Manager. Hub captains help oversee a hub, or group of hubs, within the VA and the routes assigned to them to make sure that DLVA has an up-to-date database that is accurate to the real-world airline

Sky Team Events

SkyTeam Sunday Soiree Event Series

This bi-weekly event series is dedicated to bringing SkyTeam members together in celebration of the 1,074 Destinations and 177 Countries serviced by the 20 Member Airlines in the real life SkyTeam Alliance.

Every other Sunday, SkyTeam pilots will vote on a short haul route to/from a SkyTeam Alliance hub based on the designated IFATC schedule. This will allow us to show support for the IFATC and IFC, while demonstrating VA professionalism at the highest possible standard. SkyTeam IF members will have a say in the selected route and will vote on a poll to determine the route and designated SkyTeam livery. In addition to the designated SkyTeam livery, pilots may fly the colors of their respective VAs.

Sky Team Alliance - Future
A product of the Sky Team Alliance is that we will provide a platform to bring our great communities together, and also strive to grow the membership of other Virtual Airlines that are a part of the community. Beyond the initial launch, it will be priority for the Alliance to come together with other Sky Team members, as well as emphasize and locate leadership throughout our pilot base to create and lead future VA’s to be approved by the IFVARB for inclusion
