American Airlines, British Airways And Iberia Expand Joint Business Codeshare Cooperation


Frequent Flyer Agreement Presents Opportunities to Earn Miles or Points to over 400 New Destinations in more than 100 Countries

American Airlines, British Airways and Iberia, members of the oneworld® alliance, announced new customer benefits as a result of their trans-Atlantic joint business. All three carriers are expanding the number of routes on which the airlines will codeshare between North America and Europe.

These new codeshare flights offer passengers in the United States, the United Kingdom, Spain, Mexico and many other European countries easier access to more choices and better connections to flights across the Atlantic. The first sales date of the expanded codeshare cooperation is Dec. 20, with most travel beginning on Dec. 28.

American will add its (AA*) code to an additional 57 British Airways flights to 16 markets and 4 Iberia flights to 2 markets. British Airways will add its (BA*) code to 42 additional American Airlines flights to 18 markets and 56 Iberia flights to 8 markets. Iberia will add its (IB*) code to 72 American flights in 23 markets and 86 British Airways flights to 24 markets. In total, it adds up to 317 new codeshare routes.

As a result of the joint business, British Airways code will be published on over 2,800 American and Iberia flights serving more than 336 destinations. American Airlines code will be displayed on over 800 British Airways and Iberia flights to 174 destinations and Iberia will publish its code on more than 350 British Airways and American Airlines flights to 80 destinations. All together, the joint business will serve more than 400 destinations in over 100 countries with approximately 5,200 daily departures.

Members of the three airlines' frequent flyer programmes - Iberia's Plus, American Airlines AAdvantage® programme and British Airways Executive Club - can earn points or miles on the new codeshare flights, providing customers with the benefits of the enhanced relationship.

Additional customer benefits of the trans-Atlantic joint business routes include:

  • Coordinated schedules on joint business routes providing customers with more flight choices and more convenient times
  • Dedicated support teams for customers transferring at five of the airlines' hubs: New York JFK, London Heathrow, Madrid, Chicago and Miami
  • Online check-in and boarding pass printing with either the airline operating the flight, or on the website of the airline used to book the travel
