British Airways Codeshare Agreements

In the meantime, in recent months, GOL has implemented a number of codeshare agreements. Finally, the agreement with the Colombian airline Avianca has been extended, as we have reported. Earlier, the Brazilian airline also signed a new codeshare agreement with Ethiopian Airlines. Chris Fordyce, head of BA Alliance, said: “We are very pleased to be working with Royal Air Maroc to create our first African codeshare agreement. This codeshare agreement will allow our customers not only to choose between other flights to Africa`s largest destination, Morocco, but also to connect our vast global network to new destinations in Africa. British Airways has thus remained somewhat unprotected in South America. The establishment of this loyalty partnership and a code-sharing agreement that could be concluded shortly would help the British airline. O`Globo`s article did not describe the possibility of a codeshare agreement. Rob Burguess, of Head for Points, said a loyalty partnership seems unlikely. He added that in the future we could see a complete code sharing. British Airways is a founding member of the OneWorld alliance.

As a result, BA has entered into a number of interline agreements with the airline within Oneworld, allowing its passengers to serve destinations outside the British Airways network. In addition to code sharing, customers can also benefit from the extensive interline agreement between Vistara and British Airways. Customers can now travel between India and exciting destinations throughout Europe and the UK, including, but not limited to Aberdeen, Glasgow, Dublin, Manchester, Rome, Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, Frankfurt, Munich, Hamburg and Milan, which are connected to Vistara and British Airways services in one ticket via London Heathrow. Codeshare flights offer comfortable connections to and from the daily flights that British Airways already offers to Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai and Bengaluru directly from London Heathrow. Vistara flights operate from the same terminals as British Airways in Delhi (T3) and Mumbai (T2), making connections with these airports comfortable and fluid. This is to be expected, but we should also take into account the latest developments in GOL. After the end of the partnership with Delta Air Lines, GOL turned to American Airlines. The two airlines launched a codeshare agreement in February. In addition, Smiles has launched a loyalty partnership with American, as reported by local media. According to O`Globo, in addition to the British Airways partnership, Smiles will also launch a partnership with Iberia. The members of Oneworld are American, British and Iberian. British Airways and Royal Air Maroc have announced a new codeshare agreement that will open new routes in Morocco, including Casablanca and Agadir.
