Iberia offers 41 new routes in codeshare with American Airlines and British Airways
Saturday 18, December 2010
Iberia, American Airlines and British Airways have announced new customer benefits as a result of their Joint Business in their North Atlantic routes, which was launched last October.
The three carriers are expanding the number of flights on which they will codeshare, which means passengers will have more travel choices and better connections to flights between Europe and North America. The first sales date of these new flights is December 20.
In the case of Iberia, it will place its code to 72 American Airlines flights and to 86 British Airways flights, so it will offer its customers 41 new routes and two new destinations-Calgary (Canada) and Newark. These routes, in addition to those included last October 1, when the agreement was launched, add up to 80 new routes thanks to the Joint Business.
Among these new routes are: Madrid-Los Angeles via London, Madrid-New York via the main European cities (Brussels, London or Paris), Madrid-San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Philadelphia, Orlando or Tampa via London. All together, the joint business will serve more than 400 destinations in over 100 countries with approximately 5,200 daily departures.
As another benefit of these new codeshare flights, members of the three airlines’ frequent flyer programs can earn points or miles in the new flights.
Additional customer benefits of the Joint Business include:
As a benefit of the Joint Business, the three carriers previously announced five new routes, beginning end of next March: Barcelona-Miami and Madrid-Los Angeles (Iberia), New York JFK-Budapest and Chicago-Helsinki (American Airlines), and London Heathrow-San Diego (British Airways).
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
