What’s a codeshare?

Travel to more destinations

Codeshares allow us to sell seats on flights operated by other airlines. This means you can easily combine American and US Airways flights with other partner airlines to create a single itinerary to multiple destinations.

Our codeshare agreements make booking, checking in, checking your bags and traveling more convenient. Plus, the coordinated schedules make sure you'll have enough time for all your connections.

Tips for traveling on codeshare flights

Who's operating my flight?

With a codeshare flight, the operating carrier is the airline that flies the plane, and the marketing carrier is the partner airline that sells seats on the operating carrier's flights.

You can tell which carrier is operating your flight:

Upgrades on codeshare flights

To be eligible for confirmed upgrades before check-in, you need to book flights that are marketed and operated by the same airline – American or US Airways.
