US Airways, part of American Airlines Group, said it has launched its codeshare agreement with trans-Atlantic joint business partner British Airways, further enhancing its relationship with the London-based carrier.
Launched in a phased approach, the codeshare will initially cover nearly all of the two carriers´ trans-Atlantic flights. Customers will now have access to British Airways flights to London from 21 destinations in the United States, and British Airways will place its code on US Airways flights to Charlotte and Philadelphia from 17 destinations throughout Europe.
The remaining flights in the codeshare will be implemented in phases and will include British Airways routes from London to more than 70 destinations throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East, and US Airways flights to nearly 40 destinations in North America and the Caribbean. Customers can expect to have access to all codeshare flights by the end of this summer.
