British Airways and Iberia are placing their codes on a new tranche of one another’s flights, bringing Latin America closer for BA’s customers and the Middle East to the doorstep of Iberia’s travellers.
British Airways has placed its code on Iberia flights between Madrid and San Jose (Costa Rica) and Panama City.
Iberia has added its code to British Airways flights to Bahrain, Doha, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Kuwait and Muscat. Iberia will also add its code onto British Airways’ services to Cape Town and both airlines will share their Johannesburg flights.
Iberia’s flights to Havana will also carry the BA code from mid April.
“Our customers in the UK and the Middle East are now seeing the real benefit of our merger with Iberia as we introduce these exciting routes to them. Latin America and Spain is a real draw for our travellers and it will be simpler for Iberia’s customers to access the Middle East,” said Paolo De Renzis, Regional Commercial Manager, Middle East.
“Customers are also now able to mix and match Iberia and British Airways’ flights to and from Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Johannesburg, Lagos and Cairo enabling them to access flights to suit either their schedule or their budget.”
