Finnair to Join BA/Iberia/AA Transatlantic Agreement

Finnair to Join BA/Iberia/AA Transatlantic Agreement

Finnair has announced plans to join the BA/Iberia/AA transatlantic joint venture later this year. The three carriers established the joint business agreement in 2010. Finnair will add its AY code to selected AA, BA and Iberia flights between North America and Europe, while the three existing joint venture carriers will add their codes to Finnair’s daily flights between New York and Helsinki.

All four carriers are members of the Oneworld alliance and Finnair Plus loyalty scheme members will be able to earn points or miles on the new codeshare services. Passengers will also be able to check-in and print boarding passes either on the website of the airline operating the flight, or that of the airline used to book travel.

Allister Paterson, Finnair’s Senior Vice President, Commercial, said: “Our participation in this venture will significantly increase the portfolio of available destinations to Finnair’s existing customers, as well as open up Northern Europe to a whole new network of potential travellers.

“Fare combinability between the four carriers also brings more ticket flexibility to customers, as the fares and conditions are identical between the airlines. A business traveller soon will be able to combine American, British Airways, Iberian and Finnair routes flexibly when flying between Europe and North America.”
