American and US Airways Expand Codeshare to Most Flights
American Airlines and US Airways are expanding their codeshare to provide customers access to nearly 6,500 daily flights to more than 275 destinations in the combined global network. These additional codeshare flights are now available for booking, for travel starting Feb. 6.
“This expansion marks another milestone for American Airlines as we successfully implement the world’s largest codeshare, providing our customers convenient access to the best network in the business,” said Scott Kirby, president – American Airlines.
“Bringing the networks together is what this merger is truly about and is a prime example of how we intend to deliver exceptional customer service at the new American. With this codeshare, our customers will be able to immediately realize some of the benefits they can come to expect from us, and it’s exciting to deliver those benefits so early in the integration process.”
American and US Airways launched the initial phase of their codeshare Jan. 13. This phase extends the codeshare to all flights across the combined global network, except for a select few international markets due to regulatory requirements. The two airlines expect to codeshare on every international flight in these markets by the end of the first quarter.
Through the codeshare, each airline can sell tickets operated by the other carrier using its own code and flight number, and customers will be able to easily combine select flights operated by each airline on a single itinerary when booking travel on aa.com, usairways.com or through travel distribution channels.
Customers should continue to check in for flights and conduct business with the airline operating their flight just as they did before the launch of this codeshare.
